Biography:Green's research interests are in the neural and the psychological mechanisms underlying learning and memory. His lab has focused on the role of two brain structures, the cerebellum and the striatum, in learning and memory. He is also interested in the role of these two brain structures in clinical conditions, such as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and how voluntary exercise may improve neural function. Recent publications include: Williams, M. R., Fuchs, J. R., Green, J. T., & Morielli, A. D. (2012). Cellular mechanisms and behavioral consequences of Kv1.2 regulation in the rat cerebellum. Journal of Neuroscience, 32, 9228-9237. Chess, A. C., Raymond, B. E., Gardner-Morse, I. G., Stefani, M. R., & Green, J. T. (2011). Set shifting in a rodent model of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Behavioral Neuroscience, 125, 372-382. Green, J. T., Chess, A. C., Burns, M., Schachinger, K. M., & Thanellou, A. (2011).
