Stephen Brown obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Developmental Psychology and Cognitive Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, then wrote his dissertation at the Cognitive Psychology Unit on the role of the locus coeruleus-noradrenaline system in temporal attention and uncertainty processing. Currently, he is working as a postdoc on a project that focuses on measuring heart rate variability as a measure of (unconscious) stress. In Amsterdam, he coordinates and teaches a course on cognition to first year interdisciplinary students. A fervent advocate of fountain pens, Stephen attempts to educate people on their use through a successful YouTube channel.
