In the area of vision, researchers are usually interested in commonalities across individuals. Individual differences were often neglected and treated as a source of ‘noise’. In this talk, I will present our recent psychophysical and brain imaging (MRI and ERP) researches, which investigate the correlation between psychophysical and MRI/ERP measures across individual subjects. With emphasis on individual differences, these studies reveal the critical role of V1 in generating the Ponzo illusion and a bottom-up visual saliency map, V2 in color and motion misbinding, and the left fusiform cortex in face perceptual learning. Thus, these studies demonstrate that exploiting individual differences is useful and important to understand the neural processes of various visual phenomena, ranging from low-level to high-level vision.
