Abstract

The life of an individual is a continuous series of events that includes periods of growth, development, and senescence. From before birth to maturity, progress is marked primarily by growth and development, but a sharp distinction between these two processes is not possible. Growth refers mainly to increases in size resulting from cellular multiplication of intracellular substance, while development refers to maturation of structures and functions associated with progress. Taken together, they suggest a complex set of factors having a broader meaning than either term alone. onal
