    Dr. Shulamite Green is an Assistant Professor in Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA. Dr. Green is also a licensed clinical psychologist and works as the autism specialist for UCLA's TIES for Families program for families adopting children from foster care. Dr. Green's research integrates neuroimaging, psychophysiological, and behavioral methods to identify individual differences in risk markers and outcomes in high-risk developmental populations. Her research has mainly focused on autism, from infancy through young adulthood, although she also studies other populations at risk for sensory processing difficulties including children with anxiety disorders and children with early life trauma. Her research has been widely funded through both NIH and private foundations. Broadly, research goals include 1) identify the neurobiological and physiological mechanisms underlying sensory processing difficulties; 2) determine whether these mechanisms are shared or distinct across risk groups; 3) examine how sensory processing affects higher-level cognition such as attention, social functioning, and executive functioning; and 4) use this information to inform identification and treatment of children at high risk for sensory processing difficulties. Dr. Green's current work has begun to test potential interventions for sensory over-responsivity including psychopharmacological, behavioral, and neuromodulation approaches. Dr. Green also collaborates with animal researchers through the Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities Research Center (IDDRC) to identify cross-species neural mechanisms of sensory over-responsivity.
