The continuous sequential physiological and psychological changes during ADOLESCENCE, approximately between the age of 13 and 18.
Field of psychology concerned with the normal and abnormal behavior of adolescents. It includes mental processes as well as observable responses.
Any observable response or action of an adolescent.
Performing the role of a parent by care-giving, nurturance, and protection of the child by a natural or substitute parent. The parent supports the child by exercising authority and through consistent, empathic, appropriate behavior in response to the child's needs. PARENTING differs from CHILD REARING in that in child rearing the emphasis is on the act of training or bringing up the children and the interaction between the parent and child, while parenting emphasizes the responsibility and qualities of exemplary behavior of the parent.
Organized services to provide health care to adolescents, ages ranging from 13 through 18 years.

Pubertal course of persistently short children born small for gestational age (SGA) compared with idiopathic short children born appropriate for gestational age (AGA). (1/524)

OBJECTIVE: Few data are available on the pubertal development of children born small for gestational age (SGA) who fail to show catch-up growth. DESIGN: A longitudinal analysis compared the pubertal course of persistently short children born SGA compared to children with idiopathic short stature who were appropriate for gestational age (AGA). One hundred and twenty-eight short children (height SDS<-1.7), including 76 (31 boys) born SGA and 52 (22 boys) born AGA, were regularly followed from early childhood to completion of puberty. RESULTS: Puberty was attained at normal age (10.5-14 Years in boys, 9.5-13 Years in girls) for most children in both the SGA and AGA groups (boys, 80% and 77%; girls, 76% and 78% respectively). The duration of puberty was similar in the SGA and AGA groups. Menarche occurred at normal age range but was significantly earlier in the SGA girls (P<0.01 by ANOVA). Despite the similar total pubertal growth, the patterns of growth differed significantly: SGA group - accelerated growth and bone maturation rates from onset of puberty with peak height velocity at Tanner stages 2-3, followed by a decelerated growth rate and earlier fusion of the epiphyses; AGA group - steady progression of bone elongation and maturation throughout puberty (pubertal growth, P<0.05 in both sexes; bone maturation, P<0.001 in both sexes). Final height in the SGA group was compromised compared with their target height (P<0.001). CONCLUSION: Children born SGA have a normal pubertal course with a distinct pubertal growth pattern. This pattern may represent an altered regulation of their growth modalities.  (+info)

The neurodevelopmental progress of infants less than 33 weeks into adolescence. (2/524)

BACKGROUND: Several studies have shown an increased incidence of neurodevelopmental impairment in very preterm survivors at school age compared with controls. AIM: To compare findings in the same cohort at 8 years and 15 years. METHODS: A total of 151 of the 224 eligible infants born before 33 weeks of gestation from 1979 to 1982, and who were living in the UK, were assessed at 8 and 15 years. Items common to both assessments were compared to evaluate changes in neurodevelopmental function. The assessment included a structured neurological examination, psychometric tests using the WISC-R (in subjects born in 1981-82), a test of visuomotor integration (Beery), and a school questionnaire. RESULTS: There was a significant increase in the proportion of subjects classified as impaired with disability from 11% at 8 to 22% at 14-15 years of age. The proportion of subjects classified as impaired without disability increased from 16% at 8 to 26% at 14-15 years of age. Full scale IQ decreased from 104 to 95 from childhood to adolescence, and more adolescents (24%) were requiring extra educational provision than they had at the age of 8 years (15%). CONCLUSION: Results indicate that between the ages of 8 and 15 years in this cohort of very preterm survivors there is an apparent deterioration in neurodevelopmental outcome category, cognitive function, and extra educational support. It is not clear whether this represents a genuine deterioration in neurocognitive function or whether it represents the expression of pre-existing cerebral pathology in an increasingly complex environment.  (+info)

Parents of urban adolescents in Harlem, New York, and the Internet: a cross-sectional survey on preferred resources for health information. (3/524)

BACKGROUND: Vulnerable populations suffer disproportionately from a variety of health conditions. Access to health information is an important component of health promotion. Reports suggest that while health providers and print media are traditional sources of information, the Internet may be becoming an increasingly important resource for consumers. Particularly, for parents of urban adolescents of color, the Internet could prove to be a valuable asset in helping them understand adolescent health and behavioral issues. OBJECTIVE: To determine the types of adolescent health and behavioral issues of concern to parents of color and to assess their preference for sources of health information, including the Internet. METHODS: A confidential, self-administered survey was administered to parents (largely of African American and Hispanic descent) of 9th-grade students over a 2-year period during 2001-2002 in Harlem, NY. The instrument assessed health and behavioral topics of concern, preferred resources for information, ownership and utilization patterns of computers and the Internet, and interest in obtaining additional computer/Internet training. RESULTS: A total of 419 surveys were completed; 165 in 2001 (67% response rate) and 254 in 2002 (no response rate available). Analysis of responses indicated a substantial degree of interest in obtaining information about a variety of adolescent health issues, including: HIV, sexually transmitted infections, , mental health concerns and relationships with family and peers. While home ownership of computers (84%) and access to the Internet were reasonably high (74%), use of the Internet for health information was low (14%). However, 62% of parents indicated a strong desire to have more instruction on computers and the Internet. CONCLUSIONS: Compared to other sources of health information, the Internet is underutilized by urban parents of color. Additional research is needed to identify strategies to improve utilization and assess subsequent impact on parenting activities.  (+info)

Anthropometric measurements and growth as predictors of low-back pain: a cohort study of children followed up from the age of 11 to 22 years. (4/524)

Body height is an alleged risk factor for low-back pain (LBP) in adulthood, but its importance is obscure during childhood and adolescence. We studied growth for its association with the incidence of LBP in a population study of 430 children who were examined five times: at the age 11,12,13,14 and 22 years. Body height and weight and the degrees of trunk asymmetry, thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis were measured at every examination. The history of LBP was obtained by a structured questionnaire at the ages of 14 and 22 years. The incidence of LBP was defined as pain, which occurred on eight or more days during the past year among those 338 children who had been free from LBP until 14 years of age. Growth of body height between 11 years and 14 years of age predicted the incidence of LBP. Adjusted for sex, the odds ratio (with 95% confidence interval) per an increment of one SD (4.3 cm) was 1.32 (1.06--1.65), the P value for trend being 0.03. Growth after 14 years of age was inversely related to the incidence of LBP, but the association did not reach statistical significance (P for trend=0.06). Other anthropometric measurements or their changes were not found to predict LBP. Our results are not compatible with the old myth that spinal growth actually contributes to LBP. But abundant growth in early adolescence may be a risk factor for subsequent LBP.  (+info)

Relations of moderate and vigorous physical activity to fitness and fatness in adolescents. (5/524)

BACKGROUND: It is unclear how moderate and vigorous intensities of physical activity (PA) are associated with cardiovascular fitness (CVF) and percentage of body fat (%BF) in adolescents. OBJECTIVE: We tested the hypothesis that vigorous PA, to a greater degree than moderate PA, would be associated with better CVF and lower %BF. DESIGN: This was a cross-sectional study of 421 black and white high school students (x age: 16 y). PA was measured with 5 d of accelerometry and expressed in min/d of moderate or vigorous PA. CVF was measured with a multistage treadmill test and was expressed as the oxygen consumption at a heart rate of 170 bpm. %BF was measured with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Multiple regressions were used to determine the degree to which variance in CVF and %BF was explained by PA, after control for age, sex, race, and the sex x race interaction. RESULTS: A higher index for CVF was associated with higher amounts of moderate and vigorous PA; more variance was explained by vigorous than by moderate PA. Lower %BF was associated with higher amounts of vigorous PA but not with the amount of moderate PA. CONCLUSION: Black and white adolescents who engaged in relatively large amounts of free-living vigorous exercise were likely to be relatively fit and lean.  (+info)

Impaired vascular growth in late adolescence after intrauterine growth restriction. (6/524)

BACKGROUND: Abnormal blood flow in a fetus small for gestational age indicates true fetal intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR). We tested the hypothesis that IUGR with abnormal fetal blood flow is associated with long-term abnormal vascular morphology and function in adolescence. METHODS AND RESULTS: In a prospective study, vascular mechanical properties of the common carotid artery (CCA), abdominal aorta, and popliteal artery (PA) were assessed by echo-tracking sonography in 21 adolescents with IUGR and abnormal fetal aortic blood flow and in 23 adolescents with normal fetal growth and normal fetal aortic blood flow. Endothelium-dependent and -independent vasodilatation of the brachial artery was measured by high-resolution ultrasound. After adjustment for body surface area and sex, the IUGR group had significantly smaller end-diastolic vessel diameters than the referents in the abdominal aorta and PA (mean difference, 1.7 mm [95% CI, 0.62 to 2.74] and 0.6 mm [95% CI, 0.25 to 1.02], respectively) (P=0.003 and P=0.002, respectively), with a similar trend in the CCA (P=0.09). A higher resting heart rate was observed in the IUGR group (P=0.01). No differences were found in stiffness or in endothelium-dependent and -independent vasodilatation between the 2 groups. CONCLUSIONS: IUGR caused by placental insufficiency appears to be associated with impaired vascular growth persisting into young adulthood in both men and women. The smaller aortic dimensions and the higher resting heart rate seen in adolescents with previous IUGR may be of importance for future cardiovascular health.  (+info)

Effect of body mass index changes between ages 5 and 14 on blood pressure at age 14: findings from a birth cohort study. (7/524)

Weight reduction in clinical populations of severely obese children has been shown to have beneficial effects on blood pressure, but little is known about the effect of weight gain among children in the general population. This study compares the mean blood pressure at 14 years of age with the change in overweight status between ages 5 and 14. Information from 2794 children born in Brisbane, Australia, and who were followed up since birth and had body mass index (BMI) and blood pressure measurements at ages 5 and 14 were used. Systolic and diastolic blood pressure at age 14 was the main outcomes and different patterns of change in BMI from age 5 to 14 were the main exposure. Those who changed from being overweight at age 5 to having normal BMI at age 14 had similar mean blood pressures to those who had a normal BMI at both time points: age- and sex-adjusted mean difference in systolic blood pressure 1.54 (-0.38, 3.45) mm Hg and in diastolic blood pressure 0.43 (-0.95, 1.81) mm Hg. In contrast, those who were overweight at both ages or who had a normal BMI at age 5 and were overweight at age 14 had higher blood pressure at age 14 than those who had a normal BMI at both times. These effects were independent of a range of potential confounding factors. Our findings suggest that programs that successfully result in children changing from overweight to normal-BMI status for their age may have important beneficial effects on subsequent blood pressure.  (+info)

Developmental considerations in the context of pediatric transplantation. (8/524)

This paper describes important psychological and psychosocial considerations in pediatric transplantation that can be valuable for all pediatric health care providers in the transplant setting. A developmental perspective is necessary in the consideration of these implications throughout the transplant process. Each age range (infancy, toddler and preschool, school age, and adolescence) is discussed with its normal associated developmental milestones as well as the impact transplantation can have on these milestones. Appropriate evaluation and referrals are also explained in the context of the pediatric transplant setting.  (+info)

The first datasets from the largest long-term study of brain development and child health in the United States-a project headed by a team of scientists at UC San Diego-were released to researchers around the world today by the National Institutes of Health.. To date, more than 7,500 youth and their families have been recruited for the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development or ABCD study. In addition, approximately 30 terabytes of data-about three times the size of the Library of Congress collection-have been obtained from the first 4,500 participants.. These data are being made available by the NIH, one of the main sources of support for the approximately $150 million study, to researchers worldwide to enable them to conduct research on the many factors that influence brain, cognitive, social and emotional development..

Its designed to further groundbreaking contributions to the improvement of the living conditions of young people.. Steinberg is well known for his research on adolescent brain development. Hes a former director of the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Adolescent Development and Juvenile Justice. And he was one of the experts who wrote a U.S. Supreme Court brief arguing that 16- and 17-year-olds are too immature to be executed for capital crimes (Science, 30 July 2004, p. 596). In 2005, the court abolished the death penalty for these juveniles.. ...
Comprehensive theoretical models of adolescent problem behavior propose risk and promotive factors at multiple levels of the social environment, including the family, peer, school, and neighborhood contexts.1-3 In addition, growing attention is focused on promoting positive youth development, encouraging health-promoting behavior, and investing in resources for youth.4-7 Thus, a holistic and comprehensive approach to optimizing adolescent development requires an understanding of factors related to both reducing problem behavior and increasing positive, competent youth behavior.. Research related to optimal youth development has begun to delineate critical dimensions of important social contexts.8-11 For example, some researchers propose 3 basic experiences (ie, connection, regulation, and autonomy) to define youths main associations with their environment that can be measured across multiple settings.8,12,13 Others have articulated similar concepts and expanded the number of dimensions to ...
Background Young people in the UK have among the worst health in Europe with marked inequalities across the social scale. Substance use and violence are highly prevalent and damaging to young peoples long-term health. There are increasing calls for adolescent health interventions to address multiple rather than single risk behaviours because such behaviours cluster together and because such interventions are potentially more feasible and efficient. Positive youth development (PYD) is one such intervention to address inter-clustered risk behaviours among young people. The National Youth Agency defines such interventions as voluntary and informal educational activities aiming to bring about generalised youth development in terms of positive assets such as skills, relationships and confidence, rather than merely remedying problem behaviours. We systematically reviewed outcome evaluations testing the effectiveness of PYD interventions on preventing substance use and violence in young people. ...
Several, purely social changes associated with puberty further complicate adolescent lives and add to their propensity for moodiness.
Puberty is a time of adjustment for parents as well as for children. Parents must also learn to cope with new realities as their children enter puberty. Primary among these difficult-to-adjust-to changes are pubescent childrens growing desire for independence and individuality.

Puberty is a time when sexual feelings emerge. Some youth may willingly engage in sexual activity as they explore their sexuality despite their parents explicit wishes or instructions to the contrary.
Ask parents to divide into smaller groups of two or three. Ask each group to practice answering two or three of the questions (depending on time) on the Questions about Puberty handout with each other. Ask parents to first choose the two questions they would like to practice. Once they have chosen two questions, the group should discuss together what an appropriate answer would sound like. After this work is done, they should conduct a role play in their small group with one parent playing the child and another playing the parent. Remind them to use the guidelines just discussed. Give parents about 10 minutes to do this task ...

It is known that adolescent brain development and subsequent brain function are largely affected by the environment and experience. For example, growing up abroad allows children to become bilingual, which is a positive influence on brain function. However, children who have a history of neglect or physical abuse are at risk of developing psychiatric problems. Often these psychiatric problems appear later in their life which makes it difficult to solve and treat the disorder. How are these bad memories stored and then appear in their later life? One possibility is, under a stressful environment, the maturing childs brain generates fragile circuits which are not strong enough to survive during adulthood. Therefore, it is important to understand the mechanism of neuronal circuit development which is controlled by environment and experience. In my lab, we are focusing on mouse thalamus-cortex connections to dissect how neuronal circuits are refined by neuronal activity and reveal the molecular ...

It was a staggering amount of information to take in and just a glimpse into the struggles of so many young people. But we were encouraged to hear about the reforms being directed by Corrections Commissioner Joseph Ponte and implemented by Deputy Commissioner Saunders, which began shortly after her appointment in 2015.. The Department of Corrections has eliminated punitive segregation (up to 23 hours of lock-in) for 16 to 18-year-olds and will eliminate it for 19-21 year-olds by October of this year. They have also instituted staffing changes that feature training new corrections officers in adolescent brain development and mediation, and are screening officers for their ability to work with young people.. And for the first time, re-entry education is offered in the 16 and 17-year-old classrooms that can be continued at community-based co-op tech programs when kids go home, along with, at least for now, modest programming for 18 to 21-year-olds. We saw an engaged group of young men enjoying a ...

Among those with type I diabetes, adolescents can be among the worst at achieving glycemic control. Behaviors normal in adolescent development (e.g., developing independence, rejecting parental norms in favor of peers) can be at odds with the demands of effective diabetes self-management. Modifying the family and patient interaction should be a crucial component to improving the ability of an adolescent to manage his or her diabetes.. Mobile technology is becoming more popular in medicine, and adolescents, as a group are more inclined to accept technology as an adjunct to care. Mobile technology that links adolescents to health providers could help them to work through complex information that must be processed to make good decisions. Since this assistance comes from health professionals, it should help relax parents somewhat, thus reducing problems associated with parental hypervigilance and manipulation of the regimen to avoid problems of hypoglycemia. Parental-child conflicts may therefore ...
Todays youth are unique because of their unprecedented online access.28 Social networking sites are commonly used and can facilitate interpersonal relationships that can enhance healthy adolescent development. These sites can provide important access to role models and support systems that adolescents may not have in their offline social circles. Although the majority of online interactions are benign,29 contact with a person whose identity has not been confirmed can be a dangerous situation for adolescent girls. Many adolescents do not possess the necessary skills to ward off sexual advances whether online or in person. The identification of factors that increase the risk of such contact can illuminate important ways to promote safe Internet use for at-risk youth. Results from this study indicate that maltreatment poses a unique risk for online behaviors that may set the stage for harm: namely, creating a provocative social networking profile and receiving online sexual solicitations, both of ...
PURPOSE: Sexual activity is a normative part of adolescent development, yet early sexual debut and sex with multiple partners undermine health and well-being. Both structural (e.g., poverty) and social (e.g., norms) characteristics of neighborhoods shape sexual risk taking, yet scholarship remains focused on urban areas. Thus, this study explores sexually permissive attitudes and sexual risk taking across a wider expanse of neighborhood types. METHODS: Among 8,337 nonsexually active respondents in Wave I (1994-1995 [ages 11-18]) of the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent to Adult Health (Add Health), a hierarchical linear model and a hierarchical generalized linear model were used to estimate the effect of neighborhood type and permissive sexual climate on youths sexual debut, age at debut, and lifetime number of sexual partners by Wave III (2001-2002 [ages 18-26]), controlling for individual, familial, and peer factors ...
To explore the general requirement of endothelial mTORC2 during embryonic and adolescent development, we knocked out the essential mTORC2 component Rictor in the mouse endothelium in the embryo, during adolescence and in endothelial cells in vitro. During embryonic development, Rictor knockout resulted in growth retardation and lethality around embryonic day 12. We detected reduced peripheral vascularization and delayed ossification of developing fingers, toes and vertebrae during this confined midgestational period. Rictor knockout did not affect viability, weight gain, and vascular development during further adolescence. However during this period, Rictor knockout prevented skin capillaries to gain larger and heterogeneously sized diameters and remodeling into tortuous vessels in response to FGF2. Rictor knockout strongly reduced extensive FGF2-induced neovascularization and prevented hemorrhage in FGF2-loaded matrigel plugs. Rictor knockout also disabled the formation of capillary-like ...

Statins are widely prescribed among at-risk adults and are demonstrably effective at lowering cholesterol and the risk of heart attacks with few apparent side effects. However, until recent years, they have not been prescribed for children, so little data exists regarding childhood safety or effectiveness. Also, cholesterol plays a necessary role in adolescent development. For these reasons, some experts question the new guidelines and urge caution in their implementation. For instance, in recommendations issued last year, the American Heart Association endorsed screening, particularly among children with multiple risk factors arising from family histories, but did not support drug therapy for boys until age ten and for girls until puberty. Others criticized what they perceive as a tendency to over rely on medication rather than making the hard effort to adopt a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable through a lifetime.. For parents of children who are overweight the controversy may be confusing. ...

New neuroscientific research shows the adolescent brain undergoes changes before maturing completely, perhaps explaining some behavior during teenage years.
A team of researchers from the Yale School of Medicine found that adolescents with bipolar disorder exhibited a loss of volume in the right insula and frontal cortex brain areas when compared to peers without bipolar disorder.. The scientists found these individuals lose significantly more gray matter than anticipated and show no increase in white matter connections, which the researchers say is a classic sign of normal adolescent brain development.. Using magnetic resonance imaging scans repeated over a two-year period, the researchers noted abnormalities in the prefrontal cortex and insula of 37 adolescents with bipolar disorder which were not present in the scans of 35 adolescents without the disorder.. In adolescence, the brain is very plastic so the hope is that one day we can develop interventions to prevent the development of bipolar disorder, said senior author Dr. Hilary Blumberg, professor of psychiatry and diagnostic radiology at the Yale Child Study Center.. Adolescents typically ...
Adolescence is a life phase with tremendous biological changes and social-role transitions. This unique developmental stage is characterized by pubertal maturation, individuation from parents and peer group identification. In this sensitive period both normative and maladaptive patterns of adult health are established. Sexual health, tobacco use, substance misuse, mental health, obesity, and injuries become major health categories. Adolescents have particular patterns of rheumatic diseases. Adolescents are not only medically, but also developmentally and psychologically distinct from children and from adults. Knowledge of adolescent health and normal adolescent development is pivotal for clinicians to provide developmentally appropriate care for adolescents with rheumatic diseases.. The period of transition from adolescence to adulthood presents particular challenges for young people with rheumatic diseases (as for those with other chronic diseases). These patients have not only to cope with ...
Adolescence is often described as a tumultuous time, where heightened reactivity and impulsivity lead to negative behaviors like substance abuse and unsafe sexual activity. Previous research has pointed to the immature adolescent brain as a major liability, but now, a unique study reveals that some brain changes associated with adolescence may not be driving teens towards risky behavior but may actually reflect a decrease in susceptibility to peer pressure. The findings, published by Cell Press in the March 10 issue of the journal Neuron, provide a more complete perspective of the neural systems associated with adolescent behavior.. Subcortical neural systems associated with emotional responses are thought to mature earlier than the higher cortical areas that regulate affective responses in adults, and they are often implicated in the impulsive and emotional behavior that is associated with adolescence. However, there is a lack of concrete evidence linking these behavioral changes with neural ...

OBJECTIVE: The goal of the work described here was to develop and validate a measure of the impact of epilepsy on an adolescents quality of life that is based on direct exploration of the adolescents views. METHODS: Initial scale development was based on data generated through qualitative methods (focus groups) in a previous study [McEwan MJ, Espie CA, Metcalfe J, Brodie MJ, Wilson MT. Seizure 2004;13:15-31]. A draft measure was piloted (n=30) and refined using correlational methods. Psychometric properties were established by means of a preliminary field trial (n=78). RESULTS: An initial item pool of 76 was refined to 50. The structure of the measure mirrored the conceptual model derived from focus group study; Part 1 covered issues relating to adolescent development (identity formation) with five subscales, and Part 2 covered epilepsy-related issues with four subscales. The final GEOS-YP had good internal consistency (alpha=0.91) and test-retest reliability (rho=0.75). Concurrent and construct
Increasing evidence demonstrates that risk factors for chronic diseases are established during childhood and adolescence, but the relationship between the development of diseases and adolescent development is poorly understood. Adolescence is a crucial period in life and involves multiple physiological and psychological changes that affect nutritional needs and habits.

Based on an evidence-focused literature review, this paper examines existing knowledge on raising adolescents in east and southern African countries, including Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania and Zimbabwe. Country selection was based on the availability of relevant literature and data. The vast majority of studies on parenting and adolescent development is based on research from the global north. This research sought to deepen understandings of family life, care practices and support networks in the east and southern African region so as to inform policy and interventions that seek to improve adolescent-family relations and reduce risk behaviours. An evidence-informed model for understanding the ecology of adolescent-parent relationships in the cultural and economic contexts of the region is provided. In addition, a framework for exploring contextually-relevant dimensions of parenting through research and practice is offered ...

Until ATPs founding last October, MacDonalds bigotry found expression mainly through academia rather than activism. His widely discredited research purportedly shows that Jews are driven by a genetically programmed group evolutionary strategy to undermine and harm Western civilization. In his academic works, MacDonald has suggested taxing Jews or restricting their access to universities as ways of protecting white society.. The student-led campaign against MacDonald began on Tuesday, the first day of his spring semester classes. Student activists affiliated with the groups Students Fight Back and the Party for Socialism and Liberation attempted to get those whod signed up for MacDonalds upper-level psychology courses - child & adolescent development, developmental psychopathology and social personality development - to drop them and join the boycott. The activists entered MacDonalds three classes before the professor had arrived and distributed flyers detailing MacDonalds bogus research ...

University of Pittsburgh researchers have recorded neuron activity in adolescent rat brains that could reveal the biological root of the teenage propensity to consider rewards over consequences and explain why adolescents are more vulnerable to drug addiction, behavioral disorders, and other psychological ills.. The team reports in the Journal of Neuroscience that electrode recordings of adult and adolescent brain-cell activity during the performance of a reward-driven task show that adolescent brains react to rewards with far greater excitement than adult brains. This frenzy of stimulation occurred with varying intensity throughout the study along with a greater degree of disorganization in adolescent brains. The brains of adult rats, on the other hand, processed their prizes with a consistent balance of excitation and inhibition.. The extreme difference in brain activity provides a possible physiological explanation as to why teenagers are more prone than adults to rash behavior, addiction, ...

Teenagers are wired to experiment with their environments and find their comfort zone, often amidst chaotic and tumultuous settings. Our species survives as a result of their daring and their insight. But what happens when things start to go wrong? How can a young person turn it around? What can they depend on? Can they depend on science for answers? Do we make the science accessible to them?

Author(s): Herting, Megan M; Gautam, Prapti; Spielberg, Jeffrey M; Dahl, Ronald E; Sowell, Elizabeth R | Abstract: Sex hormones have been shown to contribute to the organization and function of the brain during puberty and adolescence. Moreover, it has been suggested that distinct hormone changes in girls versus boys may contribute to the emergence of sex differences in internalizing and externalizing behavior during adolescence. In the current longitudinal study, the influence of within-subject changes in puberty (physical and hormonal) on cortical thickness and surface area was examined across a 2-year span, while controlling for age. Greater increases in Tanner Stage predicted less superior frontal thinning and decreases in precuneus surface area in both sexes. Significant Tanner Stage and sex interactions were also seen, with less right superior temporal thinning in girls but not boys, as well as greater decreases in the right bank of the superior temporal sulcus surface area in boys compared to

developmental perspective.. THROUGH THE RHYTHMS OF LIFE, human experience, or contacting, concerns itself with meeting and being met, influencing and being influenced, reaching and being reached. In the joining of one and another, the individual becomes part of some larger experience flowing into and with the greater field. From the I, a we appears. Separating from the larger, sensing difference once more, the reach completes itself. From the we, an I emerges. Reaching, we realize our selves.. Reaching is a whole body event. The sensorimotor organs of mouth, eyes, ears and limbs measure the distance between one and the other. How far away is what I long for? How near is what has become terrifying? Sometimes the distance feels vast as if meeting is simply impossible. Other times, distance shrinks, offering possibilities to feel part of another. Subjective, relational, and perceived, the experienced distance gently expands, abruptly contracts, lightly envelops, or harshly represses.. The ...

It is being hypothesised that the developing adolescent brain is increasingly enlisting long-range connectivity, allowing improved communication between spatially distant brain regions. The developmental trajectories of such maturational changes remain elusive. Here, we aim to study how the brain engages in multiple tasks (working memory, reward processing, and inhibition) at the network-level and evaluate how effects of age across these tasks are related to each other. We characterise how the brain departs from its functional baseline architecture towards task-induced functional connectivity modulations using a novel measure called task potency, allowing direct comparison between tasks by defining sensitivity to one or multiple tasks ...
