Vishnu "Deepu" Murty

I am an Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh in the Laboratory of Neurocognitive Development (Director: Bea Luna).
 My research focuses on how different affective and motivational states influence neural systems underlying memory encoding. Further, I am interested in how engagement of these systems shape how representations of the environment are stored in long-term memory. My research spans across a variety of affective and motivational states including threat, reward, and novelty. 

Prior to UPMC, I received my Ph.D. in Neurobiology from Duke University and completed a post-doctoral fellowship at New York University. 

Here is a link to my CV (Updated 11/15).
