Brains and Domains

Featuring Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, Ed.D. and Rena Subotnik, Ph.D.

In our second Speaker Series event, the topic was Brains and Domains, featuring presentations and workshops with cognitive neuroscientist and educational psychologist Mary Helen Immordino-Yang and Director of the Center for Gifted Education Policy at the American Psychological Association Rena Subotnik. Many fascinating questions were explored: What does it take to fulfill potential beyond talent or luck, and how do we reconcile high achievement with emotional contentment? The forum gave our speakers the chance to fully define their theories, while also allowing for a meaningful dialogue among attendees.
