The Neurobiological Basis of Temper Outbursts in Children
Amy Krain Roy, PhD, is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Fordham University and Adjunct Associate Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at the NYU Langone School of Medicine and NYU Child Study Center. Dr. Roy is an expert in the neurobiology of child emotional disorders. Specifically, her recent work has focused on the neural correlates of severe temper outbursts in children. Previously, she has used resting state MRI methods to examine neural circuits associated with pathological anxiety and uncertainty in adolescents. Her work has been supported by the National Institutes of Health and by two Young Investigator Awards from the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation (formerly NARSAD). She has published over 35 peer-reviewed manuscripts and edited a book on Pediatric Anxiety Disorders with co-editor, Roma Vasa, M.D. In addition to her research endeavors, Dr. Roy serves as the Director of the Integrative Neuroscience Program at Fordham, an interdisciplinary undergraduate major.
In this series, we invite leaders in the field of child and adolescent mental health and learning disorders to talk about the latest research and treatment protocols. These experts share their findings and expertise on a broad range of topics from anxiety and depression to temper outbursts and the effectiveness of parent-based treatment. Lectures are also available via live webinar online. We offer continuing medical education credits for medical professionals.
