Max Coltheart

I’m a cognitive scientist with interests mainly in cognitive neuropsychology and cognitive neuropsychiatry. I was born in 1939 at Frankston, near Melbourne, and grew up in Brisbane, Canberra and Bega before enrolling at the University of Sydney in 1957, where I did BA, MA and PhD degrees. I came to Macquarie’s Psychology Department in 1987 after having had academic posts in Sydney (University of Sydney, 1965-1967), Melbourne (Monash University, 1967-1969), Canada (University of Waterloo, 1969-1972) and England (at the University of London, where I was Professor of Psychology at Birkbeck College 1975-1987, and at the University of Reading, where I was Reader in Psychology 1972-1975).

I became Scientific Director of MACCS at its inception in 2000 and held this post until 2009. I was awarded an ARC Federation Fellowship in 2002. In 2010, I was appointed Emeritus Professor of Cognitive Science at Macquarie University.
