Dr. Herrold is an addiction neuroscientist focused on developing neuroscience-informed treatments for co-occurring alcohol use disorder (AUD) and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Her overall hypothesis is that exacerbated brain dysfunction with the co-occurrence of AUD+mTBI leads to exacerbated behavioral dysfunction, such as elevated alcohol craving. Customizing neuromodulatory treatments to treat this brain dysfunction are warranted given the heterogeneity of these conditions. Dr. Herrold is the recipient of a Department of Veterans Affairs, Rehabilitation Research and Development, Career Development Award.
