Amanda McCleery, Ph.D. joined the Green Lab in July 2012 with the support of a postdoctoral fellowship award from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR). She earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Biology from the University of Toronto. She completed her Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Kent State University, and her predoctoral clinical internship at UCLA Semel Institute. For her graduate research, Amanda examined the relationships between social and non-social cognition and functional outcome in schizophrenia spectrum conditions. Her postdoctoral project extends her previous work by utilizing EEG techniques in conjunction with behavioral measures to better understand the nature of the relationships between perceptual processing, and social and non-social cognition, in recent-onset and chronic phase schizophrenia. For her current projects, Amanda is using EEG and behavioral methods to examine neuroplasticity, cognitive abilities, including learning, memory, and social cognition, and functional outcome across phase of illness in schizophrenia.  Amanda‚Äôs research is currently supported by a National Institute of Mental Health K-23 career development award and a Brain and Behavior Research Foundation NARSAD Young Investigator Award.  Her work has been published in Biological Psychiatry, Schizophrenia Bulletin, Schizophrenia Research, and Psychiatry Research. Dr. McCleery is now an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Iowa.
