Using Cognitive Neuroscience to Understand the Creative Process
Recent neuroimaging research indicates that the brain networks engaged when we remember the past are also activated by various types of creative cognition, such as imagining the future and generating creative ideas (i.e., divergent thinking). In this seminar I will discuss the aspects of the creative process that can be studied using the methods of cognitive neuroscience, and recent evidence for the role of memory and the cooperation of large-scale brain networks in creative cognition.
