Adam E. Green is an American cognitive neuroscientist and founder of the Society for the Neuroscience of Creativity (SfNC).[1] He is Provost's Distinguished Associate Professor[2] at Georgetown University and director of the Georgetown Laboratory for Relational Cognition. A leading scholar in the neuroscience of creativity and reasoning, he currently serves as SfNC President,[1] and is incoming Editor-in-Chief at Creativity Research Journal.[3]


Green's research has integrated creativity and reasoning through the cognitive and brain-based study of "semantic distance" as a measure of creativity in reasoning.[4] His work has investigated creativity as a dynamic state that can be augmented within an individual,[5] distinct from traditional research on creativity as a stable trait. His work includes research into endogenous neural mechanisms and exogenous neuromodulation that support creativity, and research on the neuroscience of teaching and learning in real-world contexts.[6]

Early life and education

Green was born in Greensboro, North Carolina and attended Northwest Guilford High School.[7] Green received his B.A. from The Johns Hopkins University, and his Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience from Dartmouth College. He completed post-doctoral training at Yale University.[7] His sister is the poet, Leah Naomi Green.[8]
