Abstract

This chapter begins by considering aspects of the developing adolescent for understanding the development of competence, risk, and psychopathology. It then reviews research on the potential influence of neurocognitive abilities and changes in neurobiological systems on social and emotional competence. It reviews research indicating the potential mediating role of changes in neurocognitive function in the prevention of problem behaviors in childhood. Finally, it discusses the implications and future directions of research for the linkage of prevention science and developmental neuroscience during adolescence.
