Hormone activity possibly explains mood swings in adolescentsMost teenagers experience mood swings and stress during the puberty stages, making it difficult to cope with this stage of life. Till now, no certain causes of puberty-associated anxiety were identified that added to the woes and struggle.

However, recent findings suggest that a hormone that gets released in response to stress, THP, can actually reverse its puberty effects when the level of anxiety is increased.

These findings were reported by researchers led by Sheryl S. Smith, PhD, professor of physiology and pharmacology at SUNY Downstate Medical Center and were published in an edition of the journal Nature Neuroscience.
