Surprising new discovery: The brain continues to mature until the age of 30 years

The human brain does not fully mature until the age of 30 years. The new discovery raises questions regarding punishment of criminals under 30 years.

For the most sophisticated processes such as attention, perception, decision-making and risk-taking, the brain begins reaching maturity until the fourth decade. Both in the UK and the USA ,, maturity '' a person is a key factor regarding the investigation of a person.

In a report by the House of Common Select Committee has recommended that young adults aged between 18 and 25 to be treated differently from older criminals in May. The report suggests that most young people involved in crime stop at the age of 25 years.

One of the greatest difficulties to establish when the brain is mature is the discovery of a man whose brain has matured. The key change that occurs in adolescence until age 20 and 30 years is thinning gray matter and white matter thickening.

Increased white matter is to increase connectivity between different brain regions. The brain that continues to develop is the prefrontal cortex. This area of ​​the brain located in the front of the head is involved in the activation of important factors such as attention, planning, decision making, control, logical thinking, personality development and short-term memory.

    I'm working on a theory for some time in trying to combine science with religion, looking for an answer to the question 
"What is the purpose of life in Creation?  Is it possible for life to be an unintended consequence of our Universe?

Finally due to space,science and exploration throughout the Universe we got everyone to agree with the fact that we are not the only planet with life.  My blog is full of interesting articles about Creation of the Universe with all his laws,  NASA's Missions,  History,   Science,  Physics, Health, Nature, Ancient origins and Culture.
