      This is not really my area but you can read about this here:
      It seems quite a clear website.
      I’ve worked on a couple of studies looking at social exclusion, rather than bullying, and what the studies showed was that adolescents (it was done with female participants) showed a greater reduction in mood and a greater increase in anxiety after having been excluded (from a ball game played on a computer) and that they showed differences in brain activation compared to adults.
