Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Highly Sensitive Brain covers the assessment, practice, and science of sensory sensitivity, for both clinicians and applied researchers. Focusing on the major theories of sensory processing sensitivity, it also presents the prevalence in humans and other species, the assessment and diagnosis in children and adults, and addresses overlapping symptoms and disorders. The book first describes the mechanisms underlying sensory processing sensitivity, then goes on to examine the neurobiological and genetic correlates of the trait in humans and in non-human species. The latter chapters overview therapies and interventions that have shown to improve the quality of life for individuals with moderate to high sensory processing sensitivity.
