Neurobiological Impact of Adolescents' Trauma from School Bullying
이승준 강남포스트 학생기자 | 승인 2024.02.05 20:37

Bullying in school is a pervasive issue affecting adolescents worldwide, with profound implications for mental health. While the psychological toll of bullying is well-documented, recent advancements in neuroscience have opened avenues for understanding how these traumatic experiences shape the structure and function of crucial brain regions in adolescents. 

A key focus of research has been on unraveling the impact of bullying on specific brain regions associated with emotional regulation, cognition, and stress response. The amygdala, prefrontal cortex, and hippocampus emerge as central players in this narrative. 

The consequences of bullying trauma extend beyond structural changes to functional implications, particularly in domains of cognitive performance. Deficits in attention, memory, and executive functions are commonly reported in individuals who have experienced bullying.

The amygdala's involvement in emotional regulation and the stress response becomes a focal point in understanding the emotional consequences of bullying trauma. Hyperactivity in the amygdala may contribute to heightened emotional reactivity and difficulties in regulating emotions. 

While the neurobiological consequences of bullying trauma paint a challenging picture, there is hope in the concept of neuroplasticity. Understanding the interplay between the environment, genetic factors, and neuroplasticity opens avenues for targeted interventions aimed at fostering resilience in adolescents who have experienced bullying.
