‘Research Review: The neuroscience of emerging adulthood – reward, ambiguity, and social support as building blocks of mental health’
Paper from the JCPP
Background – The interval between adolescence and adulthood, ‘emerging adulthood’ (EA), lays the foundation for lifelong health and well-being. To date, there exist little empirical data – particularly in the neurobiological domain – to establish markers of risk and resilience during the transition to adulthood. This gap in the literature is concerning given the numerous forms of psychiatric illness that emerge or worsen during this period.
