I am hearing from multiple sources that the human brain doesn't finish developing till 25. However, Dr. Robert Epstein, a critic of the stage we call "adolescence," says that it's because young people are forced to be immature longer than necessary and that our outside environment influences our brain. I hear people talk about how at the beginning of high school students are still in their middle school immaturity but later they mature. If the age of majority was set at, lets say, 15, would people act mature faster? Would the parts of the brain that link actions to consequences develop sooner? Would they be ready to make big decisions earlier (i.e. marriage, military)?

This is just my take on it, i dont have any scientific studies but i think that the enviroment does take an effect on ones brain but i think its still going to develop until 25 just to the highest potential in comparison to someone that is immateur.

We used to think that the brain was fully developed by very early teenagerhood and we now realise that the brain doesn't stop developing until mid-20s or even early 30s. There's a lot more information and evidence to suggest that actually brain development in various forms goes on throughout the life span.
