Dr. Jimenez joined the Green Lab in 2013 with the support of the VA’s Advanced Fellowship in Mental Illness Research and Treatment. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the University of California, Berkeley and her doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles, after completing a clinical internship at the West LA VA Medical Center. Her graduate research utilized functional neuroimaging to investigate neurocognitive changes and affective disturbances associated with genetic liability to schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. During her three-year postdoctoral fellowship, she expanded on this line of research to examine neural networks underlying other aspects of social and non-social cognitive deficits in major mental illness. Amy has authored manuscripts published in Frontiers in Psychology and Psychiatry Research: Neuroimaging and has several co-authored publications. She has also written several book chapters. Dr. Jimenez is a licensed clinical psychologist in the state of California, and a member of the American Psychological Association and Society for Neuroscience.
