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.. A cross-disciplinary team of social and medical scientists at UC San Diego heads the coordination, data storage and analysis for the nationwide study, while the recruitment of ...
Temple University psychologist Laurence Steinberg has been awarded the first Klaus J. Jacobs Research Prize. The new award, worth $1 million, comes from the Zurich-based Jacobs Foundation, founded by chocolate magnate Klaus Jacobs. 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 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 ...

Temple University psychology professor Laurence Steinberg, an authority on adolescent development, told the Associated Press that teenage brains tend to focus on immediate rewards. Young people are easily distracted by what is happening right now, and maddeningly forgetful of the connection between current actions (where they put their cell phone) and future rewards (not breaking the phone by sitting on it ...
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.
With the advent of the digital age, research on the psychological impact of youth engagement with technology has surged. New technologies have often taken the blame for promoting negative (and potentially dangerous) youth experiences, such as cyber-bullying, sexual predation, privacy invasion, addiction to videogames, and exposure to violence.

Why do teenagers seem so much more impulsive, so much less self-aware than grown-ups? Cognitive neuroscientist Sarah-Jayne Blakemore compares the prefrontal cortex in adolescents to that of adults, to show us how typically teenage behavior is caused by the growing and developing brain.
The idea that the brain is somehow fixed in early childhood, which was an idea that was very strongly believed up until fairly recently, is completely wrong. Theres no evidence that the brain is somehow set and cant change after early childhood. In fact, it goes through this very large development throughout adolescence and right into the 20s and 30s, and even after that its plastic forever, the plasticity is a baseline state, no matter how old you are. That has implications for things like intervention programs and educational programs for teenagers.". ...

Linda Wray uses a lifespan developmental perspective, behavior change theory, demographic techniques, and large representative data sets to explore how the social environment, biomarkers, health behaviors, and chronic conditions are linked in midlife and older age. In a recent study, she looked at how marital status is associated with self-efficacy and adherence to recommended diabetes-related behavior changes and, in turn, to enhanced health outcomes in adults living with type 2 diabetes. In another, she and her colleagues investigated how health behaviors and chronic conditions influence cognitive decline. Her overarching goals are to better understand health risks across the lifespan and, in turn, to enhance prevention and management of chronic conditions and to reduce the consequences of those conditions for social roles, for middle-aged and older adults in general, as well as across key social groups. Dr. Wray teaches courses in health promotion applications and gender and biobehavioral ...
Adolescence. If only you could read their mind. You glance across the table. There they are, head down, eating dinner. And you wish for the hundredth time that week that you were a mind reader.. That you could peer inside their head and see what was going on. What was worrying them. What social struggles they were contending with. What they are feeling.. Just to make sure that they are doing ok. That they are happy.. Because despite all the daily adolescent battles, that is ultimately what it comes down to. Its the inner parent that stays with us whether our children are 4 or 40. The sense that we want to protect them from all of lifes harms.. And although we know that in reality we cant do this. We want to do the next best thing.. Talk to them about it.. The adolescent brain. So when scientists peer inside the brain of an adolescent child, what do they see?. The answer? A brain still under construction.. No longer the brain of a child, but not yet the brain of an adult. A unique entity which ...

Diet and exercise patterns during childhood and adolescence may spell the difference between health and risk of disease in later years.
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 ...
