Simon Baron-Cohen Biography

Simon Baron-Cohen is a famous Author, who was born on August 15, 1958 in United Kingdom. According to Astrologers, Simon Baron-Cohen's zodiac sign is Leo.

Simon Baron-Cohen FBA FBPsS (born 15 August 1958) is a British clinical psychologist and professor of developmental psychopathology at the University of Cambridge. He is the Director of the University’s Autism Research Centre and a Fellow of Trinity College. In 1985, Baron-Cohen formulated the mind-blindness theory of autism, the evidence for which he collated and published in 1995. In 1997, he formulated the fetal sex steroid theory of autism, the key test of which was published in 2015. He has also made major contributions to the fields of typical cognitive sex differences, autism prevalence and screening, autism genetics, autism neuroimaging, autism and technical ability, and synaesthesia. However, his views on autism and sex differences, such as the fetal sex steroid theory, are controversial, with some critics asserting that Baron-Cohen’s theories are based on subjective perceptions.

While a member of the Cognitive Development Unit (CDU) in London in 1985, Baron-Cohen was lead author (with Alan M. Leslie and Uta Frith) of the first study proposing a correlation between children with autism and delays in the development of a theory of mind (“ToM”). A theory of mind is the ability to imagine other people’s emotions and thoughts, and it is a skill that according to Baron-Cohen’s research is typically delayed developmentally in children with autism.

In 2001 he developed the autism-spectrum quotient, a set of fifty questions that can be used to help determine whether or not an adult exhibits symptoms of autism. The AQ has subsequently been used in hundreds of studies including one study of half a million people, showing robust sex differences and higher scores in those who work in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

Baron-Cohen’s work in systemising-empathising led him to investigate whether higher levels of fetal testosterone explain the increased prevalence of autism spectrum disorders among males; his theory is known as the “extreme male brain” theory of autism. A review of his book The Essential Difference published in Nature in 2003 summarises his proposal as: “the male brain is programmed to systemize and the female brain to empathize … Asperger’s syndrome represents the extreme male brain”.

A 2009 study led by Baron-Cohen which reported that autistic individuals possessed superior visual acuity has been subject to heavy criticism. The developers of the software he used said that his results were impossible based on the technology used in the study. Additionally, the results of the study could not be replicated in a follow-up study.

Baron-Cohen has faced criticism by some for his “empathizing-systemizing theory”, which states that humans may be classified on the basis of their scores along two dimensions (empathizing and systemizing); and that females tend to score higher on the empathizing dimension and males tend to score higher on the systemizing dimension. Columnist at The Guardian Madeleine Bunting summarized some of these aspects in the 2010 article “The truth about sex difference is that if men are from Mars, so are women”. Phenomenology and the Cognitive Sciences characterized The Essential Difference as “very disappointing” with a “superficial notion of intelligence”, concluding that Baron-Cohen’s major claims about mind-blindness and systemizing–empathizing are “at best, dubious”.
