Registration for ASfAR 2012 now open

If you are attending the ASfAR conference at Macquarie University on 6th and 7th December, please complete your registration as soon as possible.

Registration is free but you must be a member of ASfAR to attend. If you are not currently a member, please submit a membership application form at the same time as you register.

We are currently organising the conference dinner, which will take place on Thursday 6th in the evening. Details will be confirmed shortly but we are aiming to keep costs down to around $40 a head. Please indicate when you register whether you are likely to attend the dinner.

Important: Please note that registration for the ASfAR conference does not include registration for the public autism research workshop or Kevin Pelphrey’s public lecture on Wednesday 5th December. Please register at this link for the events on the 5th. Places are limited so it is important to do this as soon as possible.


Hello. My name's Jon Brock. I'm a Research Fellow and Senior Lecturer at the ARC Centre for Cognition and its Disorders and the Departments of Cognitive Science and Psychology at Macquarie University in Sydney, Australia. My research focuses on cognitive and neural mechanisms involved in developmental disorders including autism, Williams syndrome, and Down syndrome. Publications can be downloaded here. My CV (pdf) can be downloaded here. As well as this blog, I've also written for the Simons Foundation Autism Research Initiative, the Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, and The Conversation. Translations of some of my posts can be found on the Spanish-language website Autismo Diario. This blog is for interest only and should not be seen as a substitute for professional advice. Opinions expressed are my own (at the time of writing).
