Chantel Prat’s award-winning research challenges the “one size fits all” approach to neuroscience that has dominated the field for over a century. Her work, funded by the Office of Naval Research, the W. M. Keck Foundation, and the National Institute of Health, provides the data for improving our understanding of something we all observe on a daily basis—that not everyone works the same.

Over the past 25 years, Dr. Prat has been a leader and innovator in individual differences research,  studying the costs and benefits of different types of information processing in the brain. From how we  learn to communicate, to how we reason, problem solve, and respond to surprises and disappointments. 

Chantel’s research provides a mechanistic understanding of why we all think, feel, and behave a bit differently. Chantel is also a world-renowned science communicator and thought leader. She is the author of the new book The Neuroscience of You: How Every Brain is Different and How to Understand Yours. She has spoken internationally at events such as The World Science Festival, has appeared on dozens of podcasts and radio shows, and is featured in the documentary film 'I am Human'.
