McMaster University will continue to host undergraduate academic activities remotely for the Spring/Summer/Intersession term with only a few exceptions for courses that need student access to specialized equipment.
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.
