Research: Erica is interested in understanding the neural circuitry mediating alcohol and substance use disorders. Specifically, Erica focuses on utilizing translational neuroimaging paradigms to investigate neural networks involved in all stages of addictive disorders. She is also interested in investigating the efficacy of novel pharmacological medications and non-pharmacological treatments using neuroimaging techniques.
Erica has recently completed a translational investigation of the neural correlates of compulsive alcohol seeking in heavy drinking individuals.
