Second, I was born with a severe learning disability, which was not diagnosed until decades after my years at Yale. I was a master of compensating for my neurological deficits. That Yale had no “finishing” effect on me is in part due to those deficits. I use simple language, not Yale-like big ones. As functional MRI imaging and tensor morphometry imaging has showed that is due to the extensive amount of bad real estate on the left side of my brain. I blurt out truth when others do not, due in part to bad real estate in my frontal lobes and in part a function of the strongest part of my brain being centered in my limbic system.
I know there are other Yale women and men who share some version of the two issues I’ve raised and reaching out to us, to make us feel somehow a part and not “other,” would be a great service. Susan P. Koniak YLS ’78.
