Dr. Murphy is Assistant Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry at the Weill Cornell Medical College and a research neuropsychologist at the NIMH-supported Weill-Cornell Advanced Center for Interventions and Services Research (ACISR, P30). He obtained his doctorate at Washington University and had his internship at the VA Palo Alto before completing an NIMH T32 research fellowship at the Weill-Cornell Institute of Geriatric Psychiatry. Dr. Murphy's research is based on findings indicating that cognitive dysfunction in geriatric depression is a meaningful clinical-biological state and his work seeks to identify mechanisms underlying cognitive and mood symptoms and influencing their course. Dr. Murphy utilizes cognitive neuroscience and dense array EEG methodology to study the relationship of specific attentional systems to treatment outcomes of geriatric depression. Dr. Murphy holds an NIMH K23 Career Development Award entitled "Cognition and Treatment Outcomes in Geriatric Depression".
