Jaak Panksepp (born June 5, 1943) is a psychologist, a psychobiologist, a neuroscientist, the Baily Endowed Chair of Animal Well-Being Science for the Department of Veterinary and Comparative Anatomy, Pharmacology, and Physiology at Washington State University's College of Veterinary Medicine, and Emeritus Professor of the Department of Psychology at Bowling Green State University. Panksepp coined the term 'affective neuroscience' [Panksepp, J (1992) "A critical role for 'affective neuroscience' in resolving what is basic about basic emotions." "Psychol Rev." 99(3):554-60. PMID 1502276] , the name for the field that studies the neural mechanisms of emotion. He is known in the popular press for his research on laughter in non-human animals [ [http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/7348880/ It’s no joke: Even animals ‘laugh’ - LiveScience - MSNBC.com ] ] , such as rats [Panksepp, J. & Burgdorf, J. (2000). 50k-Hz chirping (laughter?) in response to conditioned and unconditioned tickle-induced reward in rats: effects of social housing and genetic variables. Behavioral Brain Research, 115, pp. 25-38.] .
