Jonas Olofsson: The Language of Smell—Basic Mechanisms and Neurological Applications

Jonas Olofsson, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Stockholm University and New York University Medical School.

“The sense of smell, olfaction, is a neglected topic in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, compared to the “higher” senses, vision and audition. I will argue that olfactory research provides a complementary view that is helpful to understanding the human mind and brain. I will present research from my lab at Stockholm University where we investigate the mechanisms underlying odor-language interactions as well as how we apply these basic research findings to neurology, where prognoses of age-related cognitive decline, dementia and mortality are of increasing importance.”
