Academic Editors

The following people constitute the Editorial Board of Academic Editors for the PeerJ journal. These active academics are the Editors who seek peer reviewers, evaluate their responses, and make editorial decisions on each submission to the journal. We will continue to add to the board of Academic Editors and are seeking qualified and diverse academics who share our vision.

Jon Brock

I was awarded my PhD in Psychology from Warwick University in 2003. My PhD topic was language and memory in Williams syndrome. I then completed a short post-doc at Bristol Uni investigating similar issues in Down syndrome, followed by a post-doc at Oxford investigating eye-movements in autism. Since 2007 I have been a research fellow at Macquarie University. My current research uses magnetoencephalography (MEG) to investigate the neural basis of language and auditory processing in autism.
