Animal Behavior: A Neural Basis of Individuality

Curr Biol. 2020 Jun 22;30(12):R710-R712. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2020.04.052.


Behavior can vary greatly even between genetically identical animals, but what determines such individuality? New work reveals that inter-individual differences in wiring of visual interneurons in Drosophila, arising from stochastic developmental events, underlie fly-specific object orientation abilities.
