  • This funding opportunity announcement (FOA) solicits NIH Research Project Grant (R01) applications from applicant organizations to investigate 1 ) the degree to which hormonal changes at puberty interact with neurodevelopmental processes to promote sex effects in alcohol use and misuse, and 2) the effects of adolescent alcohol exposure on these interactive processes. (nih.gov)
  • Derived from the Latin puberatum (age of maturity), the word puberty describes the physical changes to sexual maturation, not the psychosocial and cultural maturation denoted by the term adolescent development in Western culture, wherein adolescence is the period of mental transition from childhood to adulthood, which overlaps much of the body's period of puberty. (wikipedia.org)

  • Production of progesterone in the ovaries begins with the development of ovulatory cycles in girls (during the lutheal phase of the cycle), before puberty low levels of progesterone are produced in the adrenal glands of both boys and girls. (wikipedia.org)
  • peers

  • Adolescents with chronic illness or disability experience the same developmental transitions as their peers without disabilities, yet their illness or disability places them at risk for certain psycho-social problems as they move into adulthood. (ncset.org)

  • The physical and emotional changes in adolescence are comparable in complexity to the developmental phases of infancy and early childhood. (ncset.org)
  • Although families may be able to adapt, build resilience, and develop greater emotional growth and togetherness as a result of the disability, they may also experience an on-going stress as they move through the life cycles of their own development and that of their child (DeMarie & LeRoux, 2002). (ncset.org)
  • While young adolescents often provide one another with warmth and support, this period of development is also marked by increased conflict and emotional distance. (wikipedia.org)
  • Often, adolescents from the same family adopt differing lifestyles which further contributes to emotional distance between one another. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronically
  • Parents of chronically ill adolescents often are more resistant to the adolescent's efforts to act independently. (chkd.org)
  • This finding is paralleled by decreased lymphocyte sensitivity to physiological regulation by the hypothalamic pituitary adrenocortical (HPA) axis in lonely individuals, which together with evidence of increased activity of the HPA axis, suggests the development of glucocorticoid resistance in chronically lonely individuals. (wikipedia.org)
  • cliques
  • For adolescent friendships and social interaction in small groups, see cliques. (wikipedia.org)
  • Adolescents tend to form various cliques and belong to different crowds based on their activity interests, music and clothing preferences, as well as their cultural or ethnic background. (wikipedia.org)
  • chronic illness

  • As adolescents with chronic illness learn more about their illness and are encouraged to take responsibility for its management, attempts to make their own decisions about management are common. (chkd.org)
  • It is important for parents and healthcare professionals working with adolescent patients to help the adolescent develop emotionally healthy ways of living with their chronic illness and its management needs. (chkd.org)

  • Mixed-sex sibling pairs often experience more drastic decreases in intimacy during adolescence while same-sex sibling pairs experience a slight rise in intimacy during early adolescence followed by a slight drop. (wikipedia.org)
  • Instead, the primary cortical gyri form first (beginning as early as gestational week 10 in humans), followed by secondary and tertiary gyri later in development. (wikipedia.org)
  • interventions
  • These findings provide evidence for the role of media literacy as a protective factor against the negative effects on body satisfaction of exposure to thin-ideal media images, and also provide evidence to support the development and implementation of media literacy-based body image interventions. (springer.com)
  • period
  • One notable change during the adolescent period is the increase in the prevalence of externalizing and internalizing problems [ 1 ]. (intechopen.com)

  • A study was done by the University of Minnesota to determine whether working during high school helped form adolescents' choices in crystallization of occupations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Wikström's contributions to the field of criminology include the development of original theory to tackle the causes of crime, the design of innovative research methods to study the social ecology of crime (increasingly recognized as an important but under-researched area in criminology), and the publication of groundbreaking new findings about the role of social contexts in acts of crime which he is currently developing into recommendations for policy and practice. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leung notes how Steinberg's study of "neuroplasticity" justifies considering adolescence continuing up until 25 years old, because individuals brains weren't fully formed at that age. (wikipedia.org)
  • late
  • By late adolescence (18 years of age and older), parents need to set clear boundaries about any assistance they will (or won't) provide while their children are becoming independent adults. (wyomentalhealth.org)
