Adarsh K. Verma

Prime Minister's Research Fellow


Centre for Health Psychology
School of Medical Sciences
University of Hyderabad


Adarsh K. Verma is a research scholar at the University of Hyderabad. During his graduation and post-graduation programs, he was introduced to different aspects of human behavior and its interaction with the brain. By following the relevant journal articles in this area, he developed a keen interest in the brain-behavior relationship. Being with a psychology background, the day-to-day observation of human behavior intrigued him with the fascinating questions concerning risk behaviors: 


  • Why not all people engage in risky behaviors, particularly if they have similar experiences? 

  • What are the hidden factors that contribute to these differences? 

  • How and why does the brain respond differently to the same risk behavior stimuli in different people? 

  • To what extent can these behaviors be controlled by altering the involved mechanisms?


To explore the answer to these questions, he joined the Ph.D. program at the Centre for Health Psychology, School of Medical Sciences, University of Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. C.V. Usha, Assistant Professor.
