Abstract

This article discusses advances in developmental cognitive neuroscience over the last decade, outlining major developments, how these are reshaping our ideas about youth and adolescence and considering the implications for working with young people. The authors also discuss the implications of this research for the concept of youth itself, arguing that it can no longer be seen as separate from adulthood. Youth is emergence into adulthood. The social environment, including policy settings, will significantly determine the shape of adulthood as it emerges.
