In our final blog of 2016, Different Brains founder Hackie Reitman, M.D. discusses the problem of isolation when dealing with a diagnosis, and the way individuals and all of society can benefit when all of us come together for our common goals.
This week in neurodiversity features Kristen Bell discussing her issues with anxiety, a Vine comedian opens up about bi-polar and depression, and a new program hopes to use boxing to fight Parkinson's disease.
Just when you think that enough overlapping and diagnostically confusing “disorders” exist, a new one pops up! Dr. Jennifer Brout discusses Misophonia, a neurodiversity condition that is growing in recognition.
