Behavioral Individuality as a Neuroscientific Variable – Libby Zhang

Institution: Stanford University
Co-Chair: Kevin Chen
Institution: Princeton Neuroscience Institute
Date & Time: Tuesday, November 14, 2023, 2pm – 4:30pm
Location: WCC 146AB

Behavioral responses across individuals are typically averaged together due to limitations in data availability and resolution. This introduces implicit assumptions of behavioral stereotypy, but increasing evidence points to behavior being idiosyncratic, arising from multiple biological sources and timescales, and reflecting similarly underappreciated inter-individual neural variability. This session will highlight scientific and technical advances in neuroethology at the level of the individual.
