Hello. My name’s Jon Brock. I’m a researcher and lecturer in Cognitive Science and Psychology at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. I’m also a co-director of the Centre for Atypical Neurodevelopment and chief investigator at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Cognition and its Disorders. I’m proud to be an Academic Editor at the open access journal PeerJ.

My research focuses on cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in developmental disorders such as autism, Williams syndrome, and Down syndrome. I make use of eye-tracking, electro- and magnetoencephalography as well as good old fashioned experimental psychology.

My old blog, Cracking the Enigma, can be viewed here. You can also find me on Twitter, FacebookInstagramYouTube, RPubs, and the Open Science Framework.
