1 December 2011

from Mike Posner

IN 1991 Jon Driver arrived in Eugene Oregon. Young, brilliant, full of ambition perhaps a little surprised at the remote laid back place in which he found himself.  It was a wonderful year, we learned from Jon that objects were more than locations and sensation was more than vision.  Perhaps he learned a little as well because his return to the UK was marked not only by great research achievements but perhaps a bit more surprisingly outstanding and sensitive leadership and mentorship.  I last saw Jon in Sicily at Attention and Performance XX in 2002, in a single decade he had  become a leading figure in neuroimaging. What a  great loss to London, U.K. and the larger worlds of psychology and neuroscience.
