Jonathan Cannon will be joining the McMaster PNB faculty in July of 2022. His research is focused on timing and rhythm in perception and action, with particular interest in timing-related neural dynamics in the basal ganglia and the supplementary motor area. The questions motivating his work are rooted in his experience as a performing musician. His approach combines a range of experimental modalities (both in-lab and in collaboration with other experimentalists) with the formulation and simulation of neurophysiological and psychological models.
