As Bessant (2008, p. 347) points out with considerable dismay, more recently neurological science has been used to argue that young people as an entire cohort are "a ‘high risk group’ who are irresponsible, troublesome, rebellious, and even criminally inclined, and that this can be explained in terms of the biological development of the human brain".
