Simon Baron-Cohen

Simon Baron-Cohen FBA (born 15 August 1958) is Professor of developmental psychopathology at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom. He is the Director of the University’s Autism Research Centre, and a Fellow of Trinity College. He has worked on autism, including the hypothesis that autism involves degrees of mind-blindness (or delays in the development of theory of mind) and his later hypothesis that autism is an extreme form of what he calls the „male brain”, which involved a re-conceptualization of typical psychological sex differences in terms of empathising-systemising theory.
