Emotional inertia prospectively predicts the onset of depressive disorder in adolescence.
Whether emotional inertia prospectively predicts the onset of first-episode depression during adolescence is examined and greater inertia of both negative and positive emotional behaviors predicted the emergence of clinical depression 2.5 years later.
Positive parenting predicts the development of adolescent brain structure: A longitudinal study
Mapping subcortical brain maturation during adolescence: evidence of hemisphere- and sex-specific longitudinal changes.
The results suggest that subcortical brain development from early to middle adolescence is characterized by striking hemispheric specialization and sexual dimorphisms, and provide a framework for interpreting normal and abnormal changes in cognition, affect and behavior.
Structural brain development and depression onset during adolescence: a prospective longitudinal study.
Findings suggest that alterations in the developmental trajectories of limbic and striatal regions during adolescence may represent a neurobiological manifestation of a risk factor for the development of depression during this critical period and thus may provide clues as to etiological mechanisms of this disorder.
Brain development during adolescence: A mixed‐longitudinal investigation of cortical thickness, surface area, and volume
It is suggested that thickness and surface area may be driven by different underlying mechanisms, with each measure potentially providing independent information about brain development.
Responsiveness to drug cues and natural rewards in opiate addiction: associations with later heroin use.
Heroin users demonstrated reduced responsiveness to natural reinforcers across a range of psychophysiological measures, and subjective rating of pleasant pictures robustly predicted future heroin use.
Maternal positive and negative interaction behaviors and early adolescents' depressive symptoms: Adolescent emotion regulation as a mediator
This study examined the relation between mothers' positive and negative interaction behaviors during mother–child interactions and the emotion regulation (ER) and depressive symptoms of their
Childhood maltreatment and psychopathology affect brain development during adolescence.
Parental Behaviors During Family Interactions Predict Changes in Depression and Anxiety Symptoms During Adolescence
This study investigated the prospective, longitudinal relations between parental behaviors observed during parent-adolescent interactions, and the development of depression and anxiety symptoms in a
