Increased striatal activity in adolescence benefits learning

Heightened activation of the striatum that adolescents show in response to reward is often associated with risk-taking and negative health consequences. This article in Nature Communications investigates a potential positive side of this heightened activation. It shows that the activity peak in late adolescence is associated with better feedback learning, both concurrently and two years later.
