Gifted individuals experience and respond to the world with heightened emotional, sensory, motor, imaginational, and intellectual processing. In our society there are many misunderstood aspects of the gifted experience, myths and misinformation.
Gifted is a part of the spectrum of the human experience, no better, no worse but different. As a society we must come together to open our minds to human diversity, including the uniqueness of brain and bodily sensations.
My intention is to open a discussion, provide accurate information, language and compassion for the gifted experience by summarizing the latest scientific findings of neuroscience, physiology, and sensory processing in gifted individuals.
"There’s a huge gap in our understanding of the gifted community. They are often misdiagnosed as autistic, ADD, clinically depressed; the list goes on. After reading 1,000+ papers about this population, I recognized that I could reshape the story."
Over the past three years, I have conducted in-depth literature investigations on the neuroscience and physiology of bright individuals. Below are roadmaps of the topics of investigation and the relationship with gifted brain, body, and experience. I share articles and blog posts on these topics, at Awesome Neuroscience.
