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 engagement of neuromodulatory systems, particularly the mesolimbic dopamine system, influence memory and memory-guided behavior. Further, I am interested in how this system develops in healthy adolescents and psychopathology. I investigate these systems in 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).
