Dr Jonathan Delafield-Butt

Jonathan Delafield-Butt is a Reader in Child Development and Director of the Laboratory for Innovation in Autism at Strathclyde.  His work examines the origins of conscious experience and the embodied and emotional foundations of psychological development, with attention to the subtle but significant motor disruption evident in autism spectrum disorder.  He took his Ph.D. in Developmental Neurobiology at the University of Edinburgh Medical School before extending to Developmental Psychology with application of intersubjectivity theory in postdoctoral work at the Universities of Edinburgh and Copenhagen.  He held scholarships at Harvard University and the Institute for Advanced Studies at the University of Edinburgh for science-philosophy bridgework.  Delafield-Butt trained pre-clinically in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the Scottish Institute for Human Relations.  He is a member of the World Association for Infant Mental Health and the International Society for Autism Research. His team currently develops bespoke wearable and smart device serious games to characterise the motor disruption in autism spectrum disorder, and its social and psychological consequences.  He has collaboration with the University of Pisa on brainstem imaging of young children with autism, a likely major contributor to the motor disruption in ASD.

Dr Magdalena Ietswaart

Magdalena is a neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist in Psychology at the University of Stirling. Beside Magnetic Resonance, research questions in her lab are answered using brain stimulation (TMS and tDCS) and (mobile) EEG as well as behavioural techniques such as eye-movements and movement kinematics and behavioural lesion studies in neurological patients. Basic science in her lab centres primarily around perception and action ranging from visuomotor function to social neuroscience. Her applied work is on motor rehabilitation and more recently on brain injury diagnostics too. She works collaboratively towards mobile neuroimaging solutions to investigate more real-world cognition. Magdalena is interested in brain plasticity both with regards to cognitive architecture and changes of function in stroke, traumatic brain injury, and abnormal development such as autism. Due to the increasing societal challenge of dementia she wants to contribute to mobilising the neuroscience community to answer perhaps by clarifying the role of plasticity in delaying dementia onset. Magdalena is very interested in collaborating in particular on understanding the normal brain through the study of people with brain damage and work towards evidence-based changes in practice. For details on research activity see www.StirlingBrains.org ; www.MobileCognition.org ; https://sites.google.com/site/magdalenaietswaart/home

Dr Justin Williams

I am a practising child and adolescent psychiatrist at the University of Aberdeen and Royal Aberdeen Children’s Hospital in Scotland. I also have a long-standing interest in evolutionary biology. After medical school and some time as a junior doctor, I took some time out to study Lyme disease and tick ecology in wild mouse populations up on the West Coast of Scotland. I have continued to mix interests in evolutionary biology and psychiatry, and since moving to Aberdeen have also developed an interest in neuroimaging. The interests have converged on the ‘mirror neuron’ hypothesis of autism, that has lain at the centre of my research interests for the past 10 years.
