Adolescents undergo significant developmental changes in their brain structure and function during this period. The adolescent brain is characterized by ongoing neurodevelopment, with dynamic changes in neural networks and cognitive processes. Adolescents may experience challenges in various aspects of their neurocognitive functioning, including emotion regulation, decision-making, impulse control, attention, and cognitive flexibility. Neurocognitive therapies refer to therapeutic approaches that target the cognitive and neural processes underlying mental health and behavioral issues. Advances in cognitive neuroscience research have provided insights into how the brain processes information, regulates emotions, and supports cognitive functions, which can inform the development and refinement of new age therapies for adolescents. The integration of cognitive neuroscience principles into new age therapies for adolescents can provide a unique and promising approach to promoting mental health and wellbeing in this population.
