An Insight into a Bright Mind
An Atlas of the Gifted Mind translates neuroscience, physiology, and psychology research for a wide audience through compelling scientific evidence that gifted individuals perceive and respond to the world differently, experiencing heightened emotional, sensory, motor, imaginational, and intellectual processing.

Not better, not worse, but neurodiverse
In our society, there are many misunderstood aspects of the gifted experience, as well as myths and misinformation. Gifted is a part of the spectrum of the human experience: not better, not worse, but neurodiverse.

Questions for Nicole:
What is your idea worth spreading?
Gifted people are unfairly tagged as freaks, geeks and weirdos. Our study shows high IQ is a risk for psychological and physiological conditions. Originating with a unique neuroanatomy and physiology, gifted people experience elevated intellectual, sensory and emotional processing. With our data, and that of others, we can understand that “Gifted” are not better, not worse, but neurodiverse.
