Diversity Research

Humans differ. Most of us read with our eyes, but some of us read with our fingertips. The majority of humans communicate by speaking and listening, but a minority communicates by signing. Humans are diverse, and so are our brains.

In one facet of Dr. Gernsbacher’s research, she asks the questions of when should neuroscientists accentuate these differences – and when shouldn’t they? Why should individuals, themselves, accept their brain differences? And how can we, as a society, accommodate those brain differences?

You can read more about Dr. Gernsbacher’s Diversity Research, including her article “Diverse Brains,” in the Papers section of this site.
