Overview

Thirty contributions written primarily by university-based scholars of psychology, education, behavioral neurology, human development, and related fields address a range of topics revolving around the concept of human development continuing through the adult lifespan rather than terminating at the end of childhood. Contributions are organized into three sections: basic issues relevant to the theories and methods of adult development; biocognitive development in adulthood; and social development in adulthood. A sampling of topics addressed includes the new theoretical paradigm of adult learning; age-related changes in memory; moral metacognition in adolescence and adulthood; attachment theory and research and its contributions for understanding late adolescent and young adult development; and what adoption and foster care can tell us about adult development.
