Developing mathematical theories of the physical world: Open Access research on fluid dynamics from Strathclyde

Strathprints makes available Open Access scholarly outputs by Strathclyde's Department of Mathematics & Statistics, where continuum mechanics and industrial mathematics is a specialism. Such research seeks to understand fluid dynamics, among many other related areas such as liquid crystals and droplet evaporation.

The Department of Mathematics & Statistics also demonstrates expertise in population modelling & epidemiology, stochastic analysis, applied analysis and scientific computing. Access world leading mathematical and statistical Open Access research!

Abstract

The new generation of brain research, using Magnetic Resonance Imaging and other techniques, has been making an increasing impact on our understanding of young people and the application of policy. A previous article in this journal outlined the positive contribution of these findings in relation to young people and their social environment. However, the interpretation of data associated with this field of research is frequently locked into old deficit models of youth, with potentially serious consequences for policy. This article outlines some problems in interpretation in brain science, especially as it applies to young people, and urges brain scientists and social scientists to collaborate.
