Yuri Shishido


Yuri Shishido is currently a pediatric neuropsychology intern at the University of California, Los Angeles Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. She defended her dissertation in May, 2017 and is anticipated to be awarded her Ph.D. in clinical neuropsychology in August, 2018. Yuri received a B.A. in Political Science from Indiana University Bloomington and a Bachelors of Law (LLB) degree from Chuo University, Tokyo, Japan. Prior to coming to GSU, Yuri studied the interplay of child and parental factors (e.g., temperament/personality traits, psychopathology, parent-child interaction) associated with the development of depression at Northwestern University.

Yuri’s research examines the etiological mechanisms underlying the development and maintenance of various outcomes in youth, where brain-behavior relationships play a pivotal, intermediary role. Approached from a broad, integrative framework that includes neurobehavioral (e.g., executive functioning, temperament/personality traits), contextual (e.g., parenting, racial discrimination), and biological (e.g., neural systems) factors, and their interplay, her research focuses on understanding the role of brain-behavior relationships in elucidating developmental trajectories of neuropsychological outcomes among youth across diverse populations and settings. For example, Yuri’s dissertation investigated the interplay of parental executive functioning and temperament in the prediction of parenting practices. In addition, Yuri’s clinical research focuses on examining cognitive recovery processes among pediatric inpatients with moderate to severe TBI. Lastly, she is interested in assessment issues concerning neuropsychological functioning in youth aimed at early identification of at-risk youth.
