I told my colleagues that PeerJ is a journal where they need to publish if they want their paper to be published quickly and with the strict peer review expected from a good journal.

Kevin J. Black

I am a movement disorders neuropsychiatrist. My research is primarily focused on neuroimaging and dopamine, especially in people with Tourette syndrome and Parkinson disease. I have also developed methods for structural imaging volumetry, analysis of brain images in nonhuman species, pharmacological fMRI (phMRI), and statistical analysis of anatomy-function relationships in deep brain stimulation (DBS).

Ruben J. Cauchi

Ruben J. Cauchi is an Associate Professor of Neurogenetics at the University of Malta School of Medicine. He obtained his D.Phil. from the University of Oxford (UK) and did his postdoctoral research at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, University of Cambridge (UK). Prof. Cauchi heads the ALS/MND Lab at the University of Malta and leads Malta’s National ALS/MND Registry & BioBank, aiming at understanding the cause of motor neuron disease (MND) including amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and identify innovative treatments.

Luca Correale

Dr. Luca Correale is a Research fellow at the Department of Public Health, Experimental Medicine and Forensic Science, University of Pavia. His main research areas include physical activity for health and exercise in neurological conditions.

Dr Martin Daumer: Director of the SLCMSR e.v. - The Human Motion Institute in Munich and managing director of the IT company, Trium Analysis Online GmbH. He is also visiting lecturer for Telemedicine and Clinical Applications of Computational Medicine at the Technical University Munich.

Dr Daumer received a diploma in Physics in 1990 and a Ph.D. in mathematics from the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich in 1995, after having worked at CERN, Switzerland, and Rutgers University, USA.

Hedley Emsley

Expertise in neurology, cerebrovascular disease, and the neurovascular-neurodegenerative interface, including the role of inflammation/infection, novel imaging measures, emerging therapeutic targets and clinical trials.

Career History:
Completed medical degree, including intercalated BSc in Pharmacology, University of Manchester (1996). House Officer and Senior House Officer posts in North West England and National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery. Completed MRCP(UK) (1999), then undertook a three year clinical research post in Manchester leading to a PhD (2004). Completed neurology training, Walton Centre for Neurology and Neurosurgery then obtained CCT in Neurology (2008), as part of a Clinical Lecturer post, University of Liverpool. Appointed ConsuItant Neurologist with specialist interest in stroke neurology for Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS (2008-present). Also contributes to Lancashire and Cumbria Stroke Network developments. Honorary Lecturer for University of Liverpool. Member both the Association of British Neurologists and British Association of Stroke Physicians (BASP). Elected to the BASP Training and Education Committee in 2009, and appointed Chair of the committee (2010-present).

Giovanni Federico

Dr. Giovanni Federico is a Neuropsychologist and Adjunct Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience at Suor Orsola Benincasa University (Naples, Italy), and a Researcher at IRCCS Synlab SDN (Naples, Italy).

Dr. Federico holds a PhD in Experimental Psychology and Cognitive Neuroscience. His research areas include Cognitive Neuroscience; Experimental Psychology; and Neuropsychology.

Stefano Ferraina

Professor of Human Physiology, I'm a systems neuroscientist and neurologist by training. My current researches include the study of the cognitive aspects of motor control and the neural correlates of hierarchical learning in human and non-human primates. I'm also interested to multidimensional signal analysis and to the progress of neurotechnologies for developing innovative brain-computer interfaces.

Marco Filardi

Marco Filardi, Ph.D. is Assistant Professor of Experimental Psychology at Department of Basic Medicine, Neuroscience and Sense Organs, University of Bari Aldo Moro (Italy).

His research interests involve sleep and circadian rhythms in clinical (e.g., primary sleep disorders, neurodegenerative disorders, psychiatric disorders, and neurodevelopmental disorders), and non-clinical populations (e.g., children, adolescents, and elderly), sleep methodology (e.g., multisignal wearables, actigraphy, non-linear movement analysis, PSG, signal processing), neuroimaging correlates of sleep disturbances and cognitive deficits in sleep disorders and neurodegenerative conditions.

Eleonora Fiorenzato

Dr. Eleonora Fiorenzato is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Neuroscience, University of Padova, Italy. Her research aims at investigating the interplay between cognitive as well as behavioral disorders in Parkinson’s disease, with a particular interest to the brain imaging changes associated with these deficits.

Dr. Fiorenzato's main scientific interest is to identify biomarkers of cognitive decline in neurodegenerative disorders (such as, Parkinson’s disease) by combining clinical, cognitive and neuroimaging data (i.e., structural MRI, resting-state fMRI, PET) to identify different trajectories of disease progression.

Grant A Hill-Cawthorne

Senior Lecturer in Communicable Disease Epidemiology, School of Public Health, University of Sydney; Public Health Lead and Node Leader for Mass Gathering Medicine, Marie Bashir Institute, University of Sydney; Honorary Life Fellow, St Andrew's College within the University of Sydney; Senior Member and College Research Associate, Wolfson College, University of Cambridge

Biographical details:
I studied medicine in Cambridge and during my junior doctor years was very interested in both neurology and infectious diseases. Clinically I specialised in medical microbiology, keeping a particular interest in neurological infections. For the past 3 years I have been in Saudi Arabia developing a pathogen genomics laboratory where I have gained first-hand experience of second generation sequencing and bioinformatics.

Research interests:
Infectious diseases and medical microbiology are undergoing the most significant shift since PCR was introduced. By the end of this decade, sequencing will have become the main option when investigating any outbreak or infection. I study the interface between genomics as a pure science and its translation into clinical and public health benefits.

At present I am examining the worldwide genomics of tuberculosis, the use of sequencing to characterise MRSA strains and the genomic variations in BCG vaccine strains used around the globe.
