Question description

For this discussion activity, consider and reflect upon the following:

The U.S. Supreme Court banned the execution of minors (under age of 18) in all states.

  1. Consider what you have learned about hormones and neural connections in adolescent brain development and discuss how these can impact judgment, emotions, and behavior.
  2. How does an adolescent differ from an adult in this regard? Give specific examples to support your opinion.
  3. Would you argue that the age of 18 for capital punishment is correct or is it too low, given what we know about adolescent brain development and aggression?

Here is a good starting point to help you start your thinking:
