Sierra Stringfield




I graduated in 2011 from the University of Michigan with a BS in Neuroscience. Outside of research, I enjoy exploring North Carolina, participating in science outreach programs, and baking interesting treats to share with my friends and co-workers.


My primary research interest within the field of neuroscience is drug addiction research. As a member of the Robinson lab, I focus on the involvement of mesocorticolimbic circuitry in the display of attention bias to alcohol cues. Specifically, I focus on the effect of chronic binge-like ethanol exposure on frontal cortical control of behavior, using both electrophysiological and pharmacological methods.
