How friendship affects your brain
If it seems like friendships formed in adolescence are particularly special, that's because they are. Childhood, adolescent, and adult friendships all manifest differently in part because the brain works in different ways at those stages of life. During adolescence, there are changes in the way you value, understand, and connect to friends. Shannon Odell explores the neuroscience of friendship. [Directed by Biljana Labović, narrated by Alexandra Panzer and Deidre Donovan, music by Jarrett Farkas and Weston Fonger].
