Physical Changes in Adolescence

by W. W. Greulich - 1944

The physical changes which occur during this early period of life include both growth and development: growth, in the sense of an ihcrease in mass, volume, and external dimensions, and development, in the sense of becoming progressively more complex. These two processes, growth and development, do not proceed at the same absolute rate or at the same relative rate throughout this early period of life. There are intervals during which the body is increasing in size more rapiclly than it is growing in complexity, and there are other times at which this relationship is reversed. Some of the developmental changes which occur during adolescence are, perhaps, best appreciated when viewed in the light of some events which have preceded them.
