Alexander Herman is an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Minnesota Medical School and member of the Medical Discovery Team on Addiction. Dr. Herman's human neuroscience lab studies neural mechanisms of decision making that are impaired in addiction and amenable to treatment with neuromodulation. His lab combines invasive and non-invasive methods including intracranial electrophysiology, direct brain stimulation, magnetoencephalography and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Advanced computational methods are utilized to find underlying connections between brain activity, stimulation and behavior. Clinically, Dr. Herman is developing a speciality practice in refractory mood and anxiety co-morbid with addiction and chronic pain disorders.
