Session Overview

Chair: David T. Jones, MD – Mayo Clinic Co-Chair: William W. Seeley, MD –University of California, San Francisco Intensive clinical, radiographic, and pathologic characterization of patients has always been a cornerstone of the field of Behavioral Neurology. Understanding individual differences, or phenotypic heterogeneity, in these detailed characterizations is fundamental to neurobiology and patient care. This SIG will provide cutting-edge updates on phenotypic heterogeneity from thought leaders across various disciplines important for the practice of Behavioral Neurology

Objectives

  • Identify the spectrum of individual differences in brain networks, molecular pathology, and clinical presentations of neurodegenerative diseases.

  • Understand the importance of individual differences in neurologic factors for understanding normal and dysfunctional cognition and behavior.

  • Gain insight into disease mechanism through novel observations of individual differences in imaging measures of brain function.
