Interindividual Variability

People are different and so are brains. Hence we combine neuroimaging with statistical learning to investigate the relationship between neurobiological and phenotypical variability in large samples.

Picture for the topic "Interindividual Variability"

Interindividual differences in human behaviour permeate all aspects of life, from affective and cognitive functioning to social relationships. Characterizing interindividual differences in these aspects is crucial for mapping structural and functional neural correlates of such phenotypical variables like personality traits. Across a broad range of different mental functions, such as action control, memory, affective and social-cognitive processing, we investigate associations between multi-modal neural variability and performance in tasks taxing these mental functions. In addition, we examine the moderating influence of factors like age and gender on such associations and the neurobiological mechanisms that mediate these influences.
