From the Paper:

"Throughout most of history, it has been assumed that adults reside on a developmental plateau. The supposition was made that during the time between adolescence and old age, there were no systematic changes occurring. This mode of thought remained in place until the early 20th century, when studies began to reveal significant developmental influences across the life span."
