Nicole Tetreault, Ph. D., is a neuroscientist, author, meditation teacher, and international speaker on topics of neurodiversity, neurodevelopment, creativity, mental health, and wellness. Her forthcoming book, Insight into a Bright Mind, explores groundbreaking research examining the experiences of unique, creative, and intense brains weaving interviews, storytelling, and literary science, while advocating for new directions and dialogue of human and neurodiversity.

Dr. Tetreault received her PhD 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 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. Her foundations in neuroscience and meditation ground individuals to better understand their neuroindivuality and encourage them to embody their essence. Dr. Tetreault 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.

Dr. Tetreault has authored and co-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.

As a Milton and Rosalind Chang Career Exploration Prize recipient from Caltech, Dr. Tetreault is creating Beyond the Cell, a transformative program to rehabilitate incarcerated women through teaching guided meditation, neuroscience, literature, and expressive writing to cultivate positive neural, mental, and behavioral patterns for healing. Specifically, Dr. Tetreault believes we have the ability to rewire our mind for positive neural plasticity and can manifest positive life practices. Beyond the Cell’s foundational practices lead incarcerated and post-incarcerated women to greater liberation. We can rewire our mind, transform our pain, and create something beautiful.
