    Explanation
    The frontal lobe is responsible for controlling our thinking process and our reactions. It plays a crucial role in decision-making, problem-solving, planning, and social behavior.

    The frontal lobe is the part of the brain that controls the visual cortex.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the frontal lobe is not the part of the brain that controls the visual cortex. The visual cortex is actually located in the occipital lobe, which is responsible for processing visual information. The frontal lobe, on the other hand, is involved in higher cognitive functions such as decision-making, problem-solving, and personality.

    If connections between neurons in adolescent frontal lobes are not as abundant, adolescents may not be as capable of using their frontal lobes

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement suggests that if the connections between neurons in adolescent frontal lobes are not as abundant, it may affect their ability to use their frontal lobes effectively. This implies that adolescents may have limitations in their cognitive functions, decision-making abilities, and impulse control, which are primarily controlled by the frontal lobes. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Correct Answer
    A. Yes
    Explanation
    Adolescents often experience a sense of grief at the passing of their childhood because they are leaving behind a familiar and comfortable phase of life.

    It has been known for decades that adolescence is characterized by surges in sex hormones–estrogen and testosterone

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During adolescence, there is an increase in the production of sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.

Therefore, it is true that adolescence is characterized by surges in sex hormones.
