I first met Jon at Dartmouth when we were enrolled in what I think was the second of Gazzaniga's Cognitive Neuroscience bootcamps in 1991. We were both studying neglect. At the time, I was struck by his laser like focus at pursuing ideas. A couple of years later we met again at a small meeting in Oxford organized by John Marshall and Peter Halligan. This meeting gave me an opportunity to talk with Jon in more depth. Again, his intelligence and focus was so evident that his academic success came as no surprise. I have profited from his way of framing and addressing scientific problems. This is a great loss for cognitive neuroscience.
