About Frances Jensen

 

Frances Jensen, MD, chairs the Department of Neurology at the Perelman School of Medicine, University of Pennsylvania. She was a professor of Neurology at Harvard Medical School, and served as director of Translational Neuroscience and Epilepsy Research at Boston Children’s Hospital. She was also Senior Neurologist at Boston Children’s and Brigham and Women’s Hospitals.

Dr. Jensen has explored the workings of the adolescent brain in many contexts—including in her own home. Through her own research and a deep dive into the scientific literature, Dr. Jensen has gained new insights into how teenagers learn, how they respond to stress, and how their brains are affected by drugs such as marijuana. She explores these and many other intriguing questions in her best-selling book The Teenage Brain: A Neuroscientist’s Survival Guide to Raising Adolescents and Young Adults.

Dr. Jensen is a sought-after speaker and has lectured widely about the adolescent brain at science museums, TEDMED, and educational institutions.
