Areas of Research Interests
Dr. Greene's current research is focused on understanding the network architecture of the brain in typical development and in developmental neuropsychiatric disorders, namely Tourette syndrome (TS) and its commonly comorbid conditions (e.g., ADHD, OCD). She uses a cognitive neuroscience approach, applying resting state functional connectivity MRI, task-based fMRI, structural MRI, behavioral and clinical measures, to study children and adults with TS as well as typically developing individuals. Her goal is to ultimately identify predictive biomarkers that can help guide prognosis and treatment for individuals.
