Personal Brain Signatures

New Evidence Points to Personal Brain Signatures

Brain scans of a person doing nothing at all can predict how neural circuits will light up when that same individual is gambling or reading a book

Everyone's brain is different. Until recently neuroscience has tended to gloss this over by averaging results from many brain scans in trying to elicit general truths about how the organ works. But in a major development within the field researchers have begun documenting how brain activity differs between individuals. Such differences had been largely thought of as transient and uninteresting but studies are starting to show that they are innate properties of people's brains, and that knowing them better might ultimately help treat neurological disorders.
