We used to think that teens respond differently to the world because of hormones, or attitude, or because they simply need independence. But when adolescents' brains are studied through magnetic resonance imaging MRI , we see that they actually work differently than adult brains. The scientists looked at the brains of 18 children between the ages of 10 and 18 and compared them to 16 adults using functional magnetic resonance imaging fMRI. Both groups were shown pictures of adult faces and asked to identify the emotion on the faces.

The majority of Washington Supreme Court justices declined to decide whether the ruling would apply to teens who consensually send explicit pictures of themselves to other teens. The majority said the law makes it illegal for any person to produce or disseminate child pornography. The Legislature would have exempted teens who send pictures of themselves if it had intended to do so, the ruling said. But the majority of justices did not decide whether the ruling would apply to minors who consensually send explicit pictures of themselves to other minors. Dissenting justices argued that the Legislature intended to protect minors — not prosecute them — and that the ruling will lead to absurd results. The majority also held that because the image sent fell under the child-pornography statutes, it did not fall under First Amendment protections guaranteeing free speech.
