Join us for Behavioral, neural, and societal correlates of bully perpetration" a keynote presentation by School of Medicine-Psychiatry, MizzouForward faculty candidate, Dr. Michael Perino.  Dr. Perino will present on his research for approximately 40-minutes with a 20-minute question and answer session to follow.


Dr. Michael Perino is an Instructor in the Department of Psychiatry at Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.  Dr. Perino completed his B.A. degree (Honors) in Psychology/History, Minor in Arabic and Sociology from New York University, NY, and his M.A. in Forensic Psychology (Dual Track: Externship/Thesis) at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, New York NY.  Dr. Perino earned his Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology with a Minor in Clinical Psychology from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, IL.


Bullying is the most common form of youth abuse world-wide and is linked to profound, lasting, deleterious effects to psychological, social, academic and health functioning. Dr. Perino's research utilizes insights from functional brain network neuroscience (community parcellation techniques, network level analyses) and developmental psychopathology to examine the neurodevelopment of cognitive and affective processes that contribute to problematic youth behaviors, such as bullying and psychopathology. He is currently being supported through a K99/R00 award from NICHD, which Dr. Perino has used to conduct research aiming to clarify biobehavioral reward processes associated with bullying, with a focus on identifying targetable mechanisms for intervention programming.
