Her overall hypotheses 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.

Dr. Herrold also has multi-disciplinary collaborations both within the Dept. of Psychiatry, Warren Wright Adolescent Center and Radiology to examine the effects of sports-related mTBI and the impact of gender-specific factors.
