Adolescence is a period of multisystemic reorganization that provides for intrapersonal and interpersonal growth and that builds the foundation for ensuing adult roles and responsibilities. This reorganization also poses unique challenges to physiological and psychosocial health, potentially resulting in long-term consequences for well-being.Encyclopedia of Adolescence, Second Edition presents a comprehensive overview of the theories, methods, and empirical evidence needed to understand this critical developmental period. Split across 3 volumes and spanning over 150 chapters, the title begins with an overview of the history of the study of adolescence and the emerging theories and tools used to study adolescent development, as well as normative changes of adolescence, encompassing a broad range of adolescent experiences. It then examines the interpersonal and socioecological contexts which are both shaped by the adolescent and play a formative role in the adolescent’s development. In conclusion, it examines those experiences that can compromise healthy development in adolescence and the specific mental health challenges that are common or emergent during the adolescent years.This updated edition addresses identified gaps in the 1st edition and in similar works, expanding coverage to topics that have often been overlooked but are key experiences, tasks, or contexts affecting adolescent development. This new edition also highlights those topics that have become prominent in the research on adolescent development and, therefore, either require updating of information or necessitate their own chapter within the encyclopedia.Finally, the past decade has ushered in awareness that conceptualizations of adolescence, normative development, and salient contexts have been limited to viewpoints held primarily by white, Western, middle class researchers. Socio-political events of the last decade compel us to update the encyclopedia through the lens of racial, economic, and social justice, as well as positive youth development. A primary goal for this edition is to bring diverse perspectives, not only to outlining the structure of the volumes, but also to each chapter as fits the topic.

Biomarkers play an indispensable role in Alzheimer's Disease (AD) diagnosis, clinical research and clinical trials. Our understanding of AD biomarkers has been profoundly impacted by the study of Autosomal Dominant Alzheimer's Disease (ADAD). Though memory loss is the most common feature of ADAD, motor dysfunction, neuropsychiatric symptoms, and epileptiform abnormalities are present at a much higher rate in ADAD than sporadic, late-onset AD. There are over 250 known ADAD-causative variants in PSEN1, 2, and APP. This genetic heterogeneity is reflective in both biomarkers and cognitive heterogeneity across people with ADAD. Autosomal Dominant Alzheimer's Disease: A Pathophysiology Review discusses the history of ADAD and its cognitive, neuroimaging and biomarker trajectories. This book focuses how ADAD can provide a unique insight into genetically driven and sporadic forms of AD. Edited by Dr. Jasmeer Chhatwal and Dr. Eric McDade, and contributed by leading experts in the field, this book will be become the leading tool for researchers and clinicians in Alzheimer's Disease.

Scaling the Smart City, The Design and Ethics of Urban Technology engages with the smart city as a problem of scale. It disentangles the smart city from its corporate and technocratic strong hold by presenting an accessible design framework that productively aligns philosophical thinking on technology with foundational technical understandings of urban technology and smart system design. Scaling the Smart City complements and mediates between critical social theory perspectives of the smart city and technically comprehensive case studies. It examines these case examples and critiques design prototypes by threading the overarching principles of the smart city through urban, spatial, and personal scales.The knowledge and know-how to design and create urban technologies and smart cities is steadily moving from a niche field to a core industry competency. Scaling the Smart City outlines a unique cross scalar design framework, developed to teach smart cities design to designers and engineers. It unpacks the "backbox" of smart city initiatives and demystifies physical computing system design concepts. The book’s analysis of real-world case examples and design prototypes aims to demonstrate how design thinking and practice can better engage with the ethical implications of creating urban technologies and smart systems for society. It uses a clear, accessible, and instructive style of writing that synthesizes relevant scholarship and concepts to develop the reader’s foundational understanding of the contemporary smart city paradigm. It also explores the ethical implications of urban technologies and smart city initiatives.This book is an invaluable resource for readers in the established fields and professions of design, architecture, urban design, and city planning as well as the emerging fields of urban technology and urban interaction design.
