From the abstract: "Findings demonstrate that information about the link between health behaviors and brain functioning can be successfully integrated into a high school health education course, although effects on student health beliefs and behaviors were not observed. Additional development work should focus on clarifying the theoretical mechanisms of change, integrating the neuroscience content with self-regulation and growth mindset, and providing additional professional development for teachers."
