The Creative Brain
2011 Indo-American Symposium
University of Missouri
As our understanding of brain–behavior relationships advances, we are beginning to explore more complicated aspects of how behavior is controlled by the brain. One of the final frontiers in this exploration is the study of creativity. In this presentation, David Beversdorf reviews recent evidence exploring the effects of stress and pharmacological systems on creativity, and on the relationships between creativity and neurological conditions.
