Emotional inertia prospectively predicts the onset of depressive disorder in adolescence.
Emotional inertia refers to the degree to which a person's current emotional state is predicted by their prior emotional state, reflecting how much it carries over from one moment to the next.Expand
Positive parenting predicts the development of adolescent brain structure: A longitudinal study
Highlights • Positive parenting predicts development of adolescent amygdala and prefrontal cortex.• Positive parenting has a unique influence on adolescent brain development.• Positive and negativeExpand
Structural brain development and depression onset during adolescence: a prospective longitudinal study.
OBJECTIVE The authors sought to investigate whether the structural development of limbic, striatal, and prefrontal regions that are critically implicated in the pathophysiology of depression isExpand
Mapping subcortical brain maturation during adolescence: evidence of hemisphere- and sex-specific longitudinal changes.
Early to mid-adolescence is an important developmental period for subcortical brain maturation, but longitudinal studies of these neurodevelopmental changes are lacking. The present study acquiredExpand
Orbitofrontal Volumes in Early Adolescence Predict Initiation of Cannabis Use: A 4-Year Longitudinal and Prospective Study
BACKGROUND There is growing evidence that long-term, heavy cannabis use is associated with alterations in regional brain volumes. Although these changes are frequently attributed to the neurotoxicExpand
Responsiveness to drug cues and natural rewards in opiate addiction: associations with later heroin use.
CONTEXT Although drug cues reliably activate the brain's reward system, studies rarely examine how the processing of drug stimuli compares with natural reinforcers or relates to clinical outcomes. Expand
Brain development during adolescence: A mixed‐longitudinal investigation of cortical thickness, surface area, and volume
What we know about cortical development during adolescence largely stems from analyses of cross‐sectional or cohort‐sequential samples, with few studies investigating brain development using aExpand
Childhood maltreatment and psychopathology affect brain development during adolescence.
OBJECTIVE The hippocampus and amygdala have received much attention with regard to the deleterious effects of childhood maltreatment. However, it is not known if and when these effects emerge duringExpand
Hippocampal volume and sensitivity to maternal aggressive behavior: A prospective study of adolescent depressive symptoms
Abstract It has been suggested that biological factors confer increased sensitivity to environmental influences on depressive symptoms during adolescence, a crucial time for the onset of depressiveExpand
Thinning of the lateral prefrontal cortex during adolescence predicts emotion regulation in females.
Adolescence is a crucial period for the development of adaptive emotion regulation strategies. Despite the fact that structural maturation of the prefrontal cortex during adolescence is often assumedExpand
