    New Study: Teenagers Often Ignore Peoples Feelings!

    Study: Feelings matter less to teenagers

    Big News Network.com
    Thursday 7th September, 2006 (UPI)
    British researchers at University College London say teenagers often ignore people's feelings and even fail to think about their own feelings before acting.

    The scientists say teenagers today, when considering a course of action, seldom use the area of their brain that's involved in thinking about other people's emotions and thoughts.

    Scientists say they've discovered that, when making decisions about what action to take, the medial prefrontal cortex -- a region of the brain associated with higher-level thinking, empathy and guilt -- is under-used by teenagers. Instead, an area of the brain, involved in perceiving and imagining actions, takes over.

    Sarah-Jayne Blakemore of UCL's Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience said: The fact that teenagers under-use the medial pre-frontal cortex when making decisions about what to do implies that they are less likely to think about how they themselves and how other people will feel as a result of their intended action.

    The study was presented Thursday in Norwich during the Festival of Science, sponsored by the British Association for the Advancement of Science.

    I know even at a young age I had respect for others. I guess that atitude is changing among the young though.

    Its because back in the day, you had to respect your teachers or they would whoop your ass and fail you. Now, you can curse and scream and they can't do anything about it. Most of the time they can't even hold stupid kids back anymore.

    Ya here in Utah we still have some old shitty school system that no other state has and it makes it so its almost impossible to get held back.
