Neurophysiology of Giftedness – Some references (3)

The sole psychological approach of giftedness was not satisfying for me. I needed to understand the cerebral “mechanics” of giftedness.

The University of Mc Gill runs a very interesting site regarding the brain : “The Brain from top to bottom“.  You get information, depending on whether you are a beginner or an advanced reader, and on the fields you want to study.

My friend Mc Fly (chatter nickname) who is a also a doctor, taught me about Pub Med. By iteration (and after reading pages and pages of scientific communications titles), I could finally reach communications which were highlighting  differences in cellular architecture or information process speed.

Among them :

[The cytoarchitectonic characteristics of the frontal fields of the brain in gifted people] – [Article in Russian] – Orzhekhovskaia NS. –  PMID: 8983488 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE].

[The cytoarchitectonic characteristics of the speech center of the brain in gifted people in the plan to study individual variability of human brain structure] – [Article in Russian] – Bogolepova IN. – PMID: 8718633 [PubMed – indexed for MEDLINE] .

        1. John Geake – Université d’Oxford – mentionne Mme Orzekhovskaia en anglais dans une de ses présentations de 2004.
          Ca facilite un peu la compréhension… 🙂
