BECOMING AN ADULT : BECOMING AN ADULT Chapter Ten LECTURE OVERVIEW : LECTURE OVERVIEW Beginning of Adulthood Physical Health and Development Cognitive Development Personality in Adulthood Personality Disorders INTRODUCTION : INTRODUCTION When does adulthood begin? Do we have a definition? One transition: post-secondary education Changes in cognition WHEN DOES ADULTHOOD BEGIN??? : WHEN DOES ADULTHOOD BEGIN??? TRANSITIONS : TRANSITIONS Hard to define when adulthood occurs In Western Cultures: Role transitions: assuming new responsibilities and duties Age experienced: large individual variation, also large cohort variation Con’t…. : Con’t…. Cultural variations in role transitions clearer in other cultures “boys become men”: provide, protect, impregnate “girls become women”: typically menarche rites of passage: marking initiation into adulthood GOING TO COLLEGE : GOING TO COLLEGE 65% of high school graduates in US go to college Average of college student = 29 Returning adult students: over age of 25 implies have reached adulthood problem solvers, self-directed, pragmatic have relevant life experiences PSYCHOLOGICAL VIEWS : PSYCHOLOGICAL VIEWS Cognitively: differ from adolescents Drop in risk-taking behaviours Increase in self-control and social compliance From concern with identity to: autonomy and intimacy Con’t…. : Con’t…. Intimacy versus Isolation once identity is established: ready to create a shared identity studies support and refute this concept gender differences WHEN IS ADULTHOOD? : WHEN IS ADULTHOOD?

BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL THEORY : BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL THEORY 1. Positive reinforcement of drug 2. Stimuli conditioned to drug effects 3. Cues effects of the drug 4.

Given dose has less/more effect 2. Takes more/less drug to have an effect * shift in dose response curve TOLERANCE.. con’t : TOLERANCE.. con’t “cross tolerance” can occur for some effects and not others adaptive changes: homeostasis metabolic tolerance: reduces amount getting to sites of action functional tolerance: changes the reactivity of sites of action WITHDRAWAL & DEPENDENCE : WITHDRAWAL & DEPENDENCE sudden elimination of drug: withdrawal symptoms almost always opposite of initial effects of drug signs of physical dependence * not all physical: learning component as well BASIC PRINCIPLES OF DRUG ACTION : BASIC PRINCIPLES OF DRUG ACTION Slide 24: Aversive effects Discriminative (cue) effects + reinforcing effects neural mechanisms monoamines neuropeptides Modulating Variables social context genetic factors behavioural history pharmacological history Drug Seeking Behaviour Stimuli conditioned to effects of drugs Behavioural Mechanisms euphoria (+) anxiety relief functional enhancement relief from withdrawal + - Feldman, Meyer, & Quenzer, 1997 BASIC DRUG ACTION : BASIC DRUG ACTION Influence subjective experience & behaviour blood stream carries drug to CNS blood-brain barrier (BBB) Actions: diffusely bind to specific receptors influence synthesis, transport, release, or deactivation of NTs activate postsynaptic receptors PRINCIPLE PROCESSES : PRINCIPLE PROCESSES 1. Route of administration 2. Absorption and distribution 3. Binding 4. Inactivation 5. Excretion ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION : ROUTE OF ADMINISTRATION Determines how much drug reaches its site of action and how quickly the drug effect occurs 1. Intravenous injection 2.

Intracranial Administration COMMON NEURAL MECHANISM? : COMMON NEURAL MECHANISM? different sites of action final common pathway? reinforcing effects: addictive increased DA overflow in NAcc other NTs? circuit model: incorporates many areas and NTs REINFORCEMENT : REINFORCEMENT Increase the effect of dopamine in the mesolimbic system (VTA  NAcc) all reinforcers increase release of DA in the NAcc DA from NAcc: reinforcing stimulation to VTA Stimulation Experiment http://salmon.psy.plym.ac.uk/year3/psy337DrugAddiction/theorydrugaddiction.htm Slide 30: EXPERIMENT: stimulation of the VTA and collection at the NAcc http://salmon.psy.plym.ac.uk/year1/bbb.htm Slide 31: http://salmon.psy.plym.ac.uk/year1/bbb.htm DOPAMINE & REWARD : DOPAMINE & REWARD originally thought to increase “pleasure” DA not critical for reinforcement once task is learned: neural substrate for novelty or reward expectation? DA is involved in many of the aspects (ie. effects, chronic problems, etc.) of drug reward and addiction Con’t…. : Con’t…. intracranial stimulation: of substantia nigra and VTA increase responding highest responding in areas with highest DA neurons DA agonists increase & DA antagonists decrease lesions disrupt conditioned place preference CLASSES OF DRUGS : CLASSES OF DRUGS CNS depressants alcohol, hypnotics (barbituates), anxiolytics CNS stimulants amphetamine, cocaine, caffeine, nicotine, Ritalin, weight-loss products Opiates heroin, morphine, methadone, prescription pain killers Con’t... : Con’t...
