Association Areas: parietal, occipital, temporal, and frontal lobes (planning, judgement)
- The frontal lobes don't fully develop connections to other areas of brain (ex: amygdala) until early mid-twenties.
- Why?: They lack myelinated connections
- The amygdala is part of the limbic system, so if it's not connected to the amygdala then fear and aggression will take over. (Moms say teens act the way they do because the frontal lobe is not fully processed.)
