Individual variability is not noise

OPEN Trends in cognitive sciences | 20 Mar 2013

K Zilles and K Amunts
Abstract
A recent study demonstrates that intersubject variability in functional connectivity is heterogeneous across the cortex, with significantly higher variability in multimodal association cortex. Rather than being ‘noise’, intersubject variability is invaluable for understanding principles of brain evolution and ontogenetic development, and for interpreting statistical maps in task-based functional neuroimaging studies.
