Michael F. Green is a professor, psychiatry and biobehavioral sciences at UCLA. He explores the relationship between cognitive deficits in schizophrenia and activities of daily living. Schizophrenia is a chronic brain disorder that affects about 1 percent of the population. Its symptoms can include delusions, hallucinations, trouble with thinking and concentration, and lack of motivation.
