Decoding Inter-individual Variability in Experience-Dependent Behavioral Plasticity

Neuron. 2020 Jan 8;105(1):7-9. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2019.12.012.


Inter-individual variability in behavioral flexibility is widespread throughout the animal kingdom, but its underlying mechanisms remain poorly understood. In this issue of Neuron, Beets et al. (2020) provide novel insights into the genetic basis of inter-individual differences in behavioral flexibility using the model nematode C. elegans.
