Dr. Ann Guernon is an Assistant Professor at Lewis University in the Speech Language Pathology graduate program. She holds an appointment at the Hines VA Hospital.  Her research addresses neuromodulatory treatment development for persons following TBI, communication between clinicians and caregivers, and prevention and management of concussion in youth sports.


Dr. Amy Herrold is an addiction neuroscientist with dual appointments as a Research Health Scientist at Edward Hines Jr., VA Hospital and as a Research Assistant Professor at Northwestern University, Feinberg School of Medicine in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. Dr. Herrold’s research mission is to develop and optimize neuroscience-informed neuromodulatory treatments for substance use disorders and co-occurring neuropsychiatric conditions.
Not Pictured Dr. Joshua M. Rosenow is the Director of Functional Neurosurgery and Professor of Neurosurgery, Neurology and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation in the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery. He specializes in the surgical treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, tremor, and dystonia, as well as the surgical treatment of epilepsy, neuromodulation for chronic pain, and neuromodulation for neurorehabilitation.
