The Neuroscience of Giftedness

The gifted community is tremendously supportive of one another. While this support is vital to navigating daily joys and challenges, GRO believes that permanent wide-sweeping change to the understanding of giftedness will ultimately come through scientific research. As such GRO is dedicated to researching the physiology of giftedness and educating parents and professionals about the impact giftedness has on individuals. In partnership with GHF: Gifted Homeschoolers Forum, GRO has co-authored a series of six articles which address some of the physiological differences found in the gifted brain, as well as the potential impact of these differences.


Larger Regional Brain Volume

Greater Connectivity Across Brain Regions

Increased Brain Areas Associated with Emotional Processing

Greater Sensory Sensitivity

Increased Brain Activation

This project is a collaboration between Corin Barsily Goodwin & Sarah Wilson of GHF: Gifted Homeschoolers Forum and Sharon Duncan and Dr. Joanna Haase of Gifted Research And Outreach Inc.
