    • Evidence of a discrepancy between expected and actual achievement  
    • Evidence of an outstanding talent or ability  
    • Coincident evidence of a processing deficit (with processing defined broadly as the ability to interpret higher-order perceptions, as in auditory processing).

  • a baseline database for structure and activity in a healthy brain that can be cross-referenced with personality traits, cognitive skills and genetics. And it will be online, in an interactive map available to all.
  • With it, she said, she can ask, “how is this really critical node connected” to other parts of the brain, information that will inform future research and surgery.
  • “How do differences between you and me, and how our brains are wired up, relate to differences in our behaviors, our thoughts, our emotions, our feelings, our experiences?”
