In a virtual-reality setting in the university’s Youth Safety Lab, the scientists simulated a pedestrian street-crossing situation. Then they evaluated the behaviors of teens crossing the street based on the number of hours of sleep they had the night before. The teens were allowed either 4 hours or 8 ½ hours of sleep.
New research demonstrates that regular exercise can help teens who smoke to kick the habit.
Teens whose parents are engaged in their lives are more likely to practice healthy behaviors and be academically successful.
