Relationship of Age for Grade and Pubertal Stage to Early Initiation of Substance Use
TLDR
Advanced pubertal stage may be a more important risk factor for substance use than age for grade, and pediatricians should consider initiating substance use screening earlier for patients with advanced puberal stage.
The Influence of Sex Steroids on Structural Brain Maturation in Adolescence
TLDR
High-resolution structural MRI scans from 215 typically developing individuals indicate that sex steroids are associated with cerebral gray matter morphology in a sex specific manner and may explain in part differences in brain development between boys and girls.
Correspondence of Pubertal Neuroendocrine and Tanner Stage Changes in Boys and Associations With Substance Use.
TLDR
In White boys only, early timing of the pubertal rise in testosterone was associated with increased SU involvement, suggesting a physiological rather than psychosocial mechanism of association.
Parental Knowledge is a Contextual Amplifier of Associations of Pubertal Maturation and Substance Use
TLDR
Interactions between pubertal timing and tempo and parental knowledge (children’s disclosure, parental control, and parental solicitation) for adolescent substance initiation support the hypothesis that lower knowledge is a contextual amplifier of early timing-substance use associations in girls and later timing/slower tempo-Substance Use associations in boys.
Adolescence and Alcohol: a review of the literature
TLDR
Successful prevention strategies would need to comprise treatment of current neuropsychological impairment as well as of comorbid mental health problems and concurrent other substance misuse.
Risky decision-making in adolescent girls: The role of pubertal hormones and reward circuitry
Sex hormones in alcohol consumption: a systematic review of evidence
TLDR
Future observational and experimental studies conducted in both sexes with a comprehensive hormone panel are needed to elucidate the impact of the interplay between various sex hormone levels during various developmental stages on alcohol use‐related phenotypes and AUD.

The Influence of Pubertal Timing on Alcohol Use and Heavy Drinking Trajectories
TLDR
Examining the trajectories of alcohol use and heavy drinking from early adolescence to young adulthood in males and females using data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health (Add Health) suggests that early pubertal timing is a risk factor for alcohol Use and has long-term implication for individuals’ health.
Pubertal maturation and the development of alcohol use and abuse.
Puberty-dependent sleep regulation and alcohol use in early adolescents.
TLDR
Both puberty and sleep regulation are important factors in explaining alcohol use in early adolescence, and pubertal development was positively associated with sleep problems and more evening-type tendencies, which were positively related to alcohol use.
Pubertal Timing and Substance Use in Middle Adolescence: A 2-Year Follow-up Study
TLDR
Early puberty is a risk factor for substance use particularly among boys and among girls, the impact of pubertal timing already tempers off during adolescence, and the associations persisted when symptom dimensions and parental monitoring were added into the models.
Pubertal timing and substance use: the effects of gender, parental monitoring and deviant peers.
Sexual maturation in early adolescence and alcohol drinking and cigarette smoking in late adolescence: a prospective study of 2,129 Norwegian girls and boys
TLDR
It is concluded that, for girls, but not for boys, early sexual maturation was associated with more advanced drinking and higher frequency of smoking in late adolescence.
Relations of Pubertal Timing and Depressive Symptoms to Substance Use in Early Adolescence
The aim for this longitudinal study was to test three hypotheses concerning the effects of pubertal timing on substance use during early adolescence. The maturational deviance hypothesis posits that
Testosterone and Alcohol Use among Adolescent Male Twins: Testing Between-Family Associations in Within-Family Comparisons
TLDR
The association with frequent intoxication replicated among drinking-discordant twin brothers, effectively ruling out between-family confounds, but that association was not significant after adjustment for pubertal development.
Measuring Puberty and Understanding Its Impact: A Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Twins
Pubertal development is an important focus of current biopsychosocial research. The Pubertal Development Scale or PDS (Petersen, Crockett, Richards, and Boxer, J. Youth Adolesc. (1988) 17: 117–133)
Alcohol use in adolescent females: correlates with estradiol and testosterone.
TLDR
Hormonal relationships associated with adolescent alcohol use may be related to future health risks of alcohol use and/or increased risk of alcohol Use in adolescent females.
