Jay Gottfried Appointed Penn Integrates Knowledge Professor

Jay Gottfried has been named the University of Pennsylvania’s 18th Penn Integrates Knowledge University Professor, effective July 1, 2017. The announcement was made today by Penn President Amy Gutmann and Provost Vincent Price.    

A world-renowned neuroscientist, Gottfried will be the Arthur H. Rubenstein University Professor, with joint faculty appointments in the Department of Psychology in Penn Arts and Sciences and the Department of Neurology in the Perelman School of Medicine. 

Gottfried’s research studies how the human brain translates perceptions into smells (e.g., the smell of a rose or a wet dog).  He brings together a wide range of approaches and techniques—including physiological recordings, multivariate pattern analysis, and computational modeling—to understand how the brain encodes and stores odor information and how emotion, learning, and experience affect this perceptual and neural information.
