Biography

Todd Herrington is a Neurologist at Massachusetts General Hospital and an Instructor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School.  Dr. Herrington completed his BS at Stanford University, followed by MD and PhD at Harvard Medical School, residency in Neurology at the joint Partners Neurology Residency Program at Massachusetts General Hospital and Brigham and Women's Hospital, and a Fellowship in Movement Disorders at Massachusetts General Hospital.

In the Division of Movement Disorders, Dr. Herrington treats patients with Parkinson's disease, tremor,  dystonia and other movement disorders, with an additional specialization in patients who are undergoing treatment with deep brain stimulation.
 
Dr. Herrington's research focuses on the impact of deep brain stimulation on the motor, cognitive and psychiatric manifestations of movement disorders. Using a combination of intraoperative neurophysiology, noninvasive neurophysiology and neuroimaging, Dr. Herrington aims to further our understanding of the role of the human basal ganglia in health and disease and to develop novel approaches to neuromodulation to treat motor and nonmotor symptoms.
