Vishnu "Deepu" Murty

My research focuses on how engagement of neuromodulatory systems, particularly the mesolimbic dopamine system, influence memory and memory-guided behavior. I investigate these systems in a variety of affective and motivational states including threat, reward, and novelty. Further, I am interested in how these systems develop in healthy adolescents and psychosis.

I will be starting my lab [Working Lab Names: Adaptive Memory Lab (AML), the Murty Laboratory for MesoLimbic NeuroModulation and NeuroMnemonics (MLMLNMNM)] in the Psychology Department of Temple University in 2018. If you are interested in joining the lab as a research assistant, graduate student, or post-doc, send me an e-mail!

Here is a link to my CV (Updated 8/17).
