My name is Jian Zhu (or Jerry, for easy pronunciation). I am currently a postdoctoral researcher at Indiana Alzheimer's Disease Center, Indiana University School of Medicine.

(Date: Spring, 2017)
My doctoral dissertation focused on how bupropion affects a task-related depressive EEG pattern in smokers, as part of a parent R01 study funded by National Institute on Drug Abuse. Study findings suggest that the employed EEG measure is a sensitive and effective predictor of the beneficial effects of bupropion. The discovery could help advance personalized and efficacious treatments for depressive disorders and smoking abstinence. This work has been published on Experimental and Clinical Psychopharmacology.

My past and present work and research interests, broadly speaking, focus on the study of memory processes in normal subjects, as well as in clinical population, by utilizing methods ranging from behavioral manipulation, through neuroimaging observation, to treatment intervention.
