    This title is a comprehensive guide to the biological mysteries that lie behind teenage behaviour. Contrary to popular (parental) opinion, teenagers are not the lazy, unpleasant - frankly, spotty - louts they occasionally appear to be. During the teenage years the brain is undergoing its most radical and fundamental change since the age of two. Nicola Morgan's carefully researched, accessible and humorous examination of the ups and downs of the teenage brain has chapters dealing with powerful emotions, the need for more sleep, the urge to take risks, the difference between genders and the reasons behind addiction or depression. The revised edition of this classic book contains important new research, including information about the discovery of mirror neurons and their effect on the teenage brain. It is shortlisted for the 2006 Royal Society's Aventis Prize for Science Books.

    Our bodies are always active - from before we are born until the day we die. Even when we're asleep our hearts continue to beat, we keep on breathing, and the cells that make up our bodies are constantly being repaired and renewed. All of this activity requires a supply of energy and a source of raw materials. Both of these things come from the food we eat. This book explains the importance of nutrition, and shows how things like appetite and the foods we want and need change during our lives.
