Penn Study links teenage driving accidents to brain development

September 23, 2019

A recent Penn study has linked teenage driving accidents to the rate of brain development in adolescents. The results suggest that teenagers with slower working memory growth are more likely to be involved in accidents.

The study was the first to compare motor vehicle accidents to working memory by following a group of participants over a long period of time. It was conducted by researchers from the Annenberg Public Policy Center, the Perelman School of Medicine, and the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
