We are all wired differently. Dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD and autism spectrum disorder are all variations that arise in the brain. For example, some dyslexics use a different side of the brain to read than neurotypicals, and those with autism also process information in a different way.

In this talk, psychologist Professor Karen Waldie will cover 20 years of her own research into neurodiversity, outlining how our knowledge of these conditions has improved vastly with advances in magnetic resonance imaging and molecular genetics, as well as New Zealand’s own longitudinal child developmental research.

Along the way, Karen will dispel some long-held myths and answer some of the big questions about the brain. Are dyslexia and ADHD real? How is the diverse brain different from neurotypical brains? What is neuroplasticity? And while genetics are clearly influential, do environmental factors also play a role in neurodiversity?
