Three Talks on Individual Differences in the Brain and Behavior

There are many dimensions along which individual differences manifest in the brain and behavior from how we see, smell and perceive the world.  Hear three different perspectives from our recent Inter and Intra person Variability symposium.


Natural Variations in Olfactory Receptors Shape Odor Perception

This talk by Dr. Casey Trimmer discusses differences in our genes that shape our odor perception.  We don’t all smell things in the same way!


Adaptation and Individual Differences in Visual Perception

This talk by Dr. Michael Webster discusses interesting differences in how we “see” the same thing.


Relating Individual Differences in Brain Organization and Connectivity to Behavior

Finally this talk by Dr. Emily Finn looks at differences between individuals in the organization and connectivity of their brain networks and how this relates to behavior.
