Ever wonder just what is making your teenager act the way she does? Just what is going on inside her head? Now's your chance to find out. "Understanding the Teenage Brain," a lecture at The British School of Boston by Dr. Ron Clavier, a neuroscientist and the author of "Teen Brain, Teen Mind." Clavier’s lecture demonstrates that an understanding of the teenage brain is the key to unlocking the mysteries of why teens think and act the way they do. His own deep understanding of human brain development allows him to show how neurological changes in a young person’s developing brain underlie many behaviors and emotions. Illustrating his ideas with examples and observations, he provides coping tips and strategies for young people and their families, easing tensions and improving communications to make the adolescent years healthier and more productive. Clavier is skilled in making connections between science and society, and making scientific concepts easy to understand. Teenagers, parents and educators have enjoyed his talks all over the world. Tues., Jan. 29, 7 p.m. Teens and adults. Free, but reservations are required. The British School of Boston, 416 Pond St., Boston.
