Is there any difference between a 21 year old brain and a 26 year old brain in terms of maturity and development?

    The human brain is fully developed at the age of 25 years. The brain doesn't age at all. Only the body ages with diseases and unhealthy practices and junk food.

    Yes.  The brain stops growing at the age of twenty-four.

    The main difference is from experience, 5 years of putting yourself out there taking chances winning some losing some, and if you had to deal with any major setbacks.  From someone serving in the Military, during war time, becoming homeless, losing a job for months.  and any other life mishaps we go through.  I do believe the average girl or young woman if everything was equal, a 14,16,18, 21 seems to be a little more responsible, and mature than the average boy or young man of the same age. There is a lot of pressure put on girls and while boys are running climbing and horsing around girls have to deal with getting her period.  That matures girls a bit that boys have no experience in.  Most men and women will kind of even out by 25.  But we all  do grow differently.

    Yes. Frontal lobe development isn't finished until 25-26.

    I don't think so, but remember that physical changes of the brain - development of more brain cell connections with learning - continues throughout a person's life, even until old age.

    It is widely debated as to which age the brain is considered “fully mature” or developed. In the past, many experts believed that the brain may have been done developing in the mid to late teens. Then along came some evidence to suggest that development may last until at least age 20. These days, a consensus of neuroscientists agree that brain development likely persists until at least the mid-20s – possibly until the 30s.
