Abstract

This report provides a synthesis and evaluation of the current neurobiological, neuropsychological and psychological literature on adolescent cognitive maturation. Using an ‘umbrella review’ methodology, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and narrative reviews were collated, critically assessed, and then synthesized to provide robust findings and interpretations of the data as it applies to cognitive maturation and juvenile sentencing.
