Kevin J. Black

I am a neuropsychiatrist who also completed a movement disorders fellowship at Washington University. 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).

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.
