TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Indiana Youth Institute says the brain is the key to figuring out human behavior.
This is especially true when it comes to youth.
That's why the institute teamed up with Indiana Brain Mapping.
They held a conference on Thursday that focused on the minds of Hoosier youths.
Health experts say everyone has some sort of circuitry in the brains that impacts behavior.
Organizers say this is key to figuring out the best way to help kids.
"What can we do after we understand what their brains look like, so we can prescribe them the proper medication or the proper services to get them back on track to really make them productive members of society," Kevin Enders from the Indiana Youth Institute said.
The conference was a collaboration between The Children's Bureau Inc., Gibault Children's Services, Harsha Behavioral Services, MDWise, and the IYI.
