Biography

Harold Greene is a professor of psychology at University of Detroit Mercy. He obtained a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) from Queen's University, Canada, and an Master of Science and Doctorate in Cognitive/Experimental psychology from University of Georgia. Before coming to Detroit Mercy, Greene held research fellowships at the Center of Excellence for Research on Training (CERT) in Atlanta, Georgia, and at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He teaches perception/cognitive psychology, statistics, research methods, learning and memory, and cross-cultural psychology.

His research interests are generally aimed at determining functional limitations in the human visual attention system. A major concern is the limitation of mechanisms involved in the search for a target object among visual distractors. Experiments conducted in his laboratory utilize eye-tracking, electroencephalography (EEG), and Galvanic skin response (GSR) technology. Research of the sort conducted in his laboratory utilize theories of visual attention and have real-life implications for attention-related behaviors. Greene joined the Detroit Mercy faculty in 1999 and has been active in research since then.
