Ever feel like you have a difficult time relaxing after a stressful or fearful situation? If so, you may actually grow out of it.
According to a new study, teenage brains use different internal structures to process fear than adult brains do. This difference makes teens more susceptible to continuous feelings of stress.
The study, conducted at Oxford University, used brain-imaging technology to analyze participants’ responses to stressful stimuli.
According to PsychCentral, the study's researchers said these results “may help explain why teens tend to express more pervasive worries and appear more vulnerable to stress-related problems.”
