Samenvatting (EN)

There has been intensive interest in understanding adolescent brain development as a way to gain insights into many of the vulnerabilities that emerge during this maturational period. This has led to the notion emphasizing an imbalance between fronto-cortical and limbic brain areas as a crucial dimension leading to problem behavior in adolescence. However, the frontal-limbic imbalance also confers both advantages?for learning and rapid adaptation to different social contexts. Using neuroimaging studies we aim to demonstrate that social influence affects reward and social decision making in typically developing adolescents; and reveal the neural basis of social influence differences in autism.
