About Dr. Nicole Tetreault:
Nicole A. Tetreault, Ph.D., is a compassionate neuroscientist, author, meditation teacher, and international speaker on topics of neurodiversity, neurodevelopment, creativity, mental health, and wellness.
Her book, INSIGHT INTO A BRIGHT MIND: A Neuroscientist’s Personal Stories of Unique Thinking, explores groundbreaking research examining the experiences of unique, creative, and intense brains, weaving interviews, storytelling, and literary science, while advocating for new directions to embrace human diversity and neurodiversity.
Nicole received her Ph.D. from California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in biology, specializing in neurodevelopment and neurodegenerative disorders. As the founder of Awesome Neuroscience, she is dedicated to translating the most promising neuroscience research and positive psychology for individuals to live their best life. Her approach centers on guiding individuals to mindfully develop greater self-awareness and compassion, while teaching them positive life practices. She leads a new generation of meditation practices by fusing modern discoveries in neuroscience with the ancient art of meditation.
Nicole has researched neurodiversity, including autism, giftedness, and 2e for over two decades and is passionate about sharing her knowledge and approach to neurodiversity. Being 2e herself, she understands the experience from the inside out.
She has authored numerous academic papers on intelligence, autism, brain evolution, neuroanatomy, neuroinflammation, brain development, and behavior. Her popular science writings can be found in 2e Newsletter, Variations Magazine, GHF Dialogue, SENG Newsletter, Gifted Unlimited, and Great Potential Press.
Nicole is a Dean at Bridges Graduate School of Cognitive Diversity in Education where she teaches the complexities of neurodiversity, meditation and neuroscience.
Nicole believes we have the ability to wire our minds for positive plasticity through compassion and self-expression to live the life we dream. As a Milton and Rosalind Chang Career Exploration Prize recipient from Caltech, Nicole founded a novel non-profit, Beyond the Cell, a transformative program to rehabilitate incarcerated and post-incarcerated women through teaching guided meditation, neuroscience, literature, and expressive writing to cultivate positive neural, mental, and behavioral patterns for healing. She is a committee member for PEN Los Angeles and supports PEN’s mission of protecting free speech.
