In Memoriam:
Professor Kenneth Johnson

“He revolutionized our understanding of how the brain integrates information about touch and related sensations. He was also a wonderful citizen of Johns Hopkins. His direction of the Mind/Brain Institute was insightful and farsighted. He recruited faculty in diverse areas and inaugurated a major undergraduate degree-granting program in neuroscience on the Homewood campus. Despite his many accomplishments, Ken was at all times a modest, self-effacing individual who let his deeds speak for themselves.”

Solomon Snyder, professor and director of neuroscience in the School of Medicine, on colleague Kenneth Johnson (above), director of the Zanvyl Krieger Mind/Brain Institute in the Krieger School, who died of colon cancer May 12 at the age of 66.
