Description Neuroscience of Creativity de Oshin Vartanian:

This volume offers a comprehensive overview of the latest neuroscientific approaches to the scientific study of creativity. In chapters that progress logically from neurobiological fundamentals to systems neuroscience and neuroimaging, leading scholars describe the latest theoretical, genetic, structural, clinical, functional, and applied research on the neural bases of creativity. The treatment is both broad and in depth, offering a range of neuroscientific perspectives with detailed coverage by experts in each area. The contributors discuss such issues as the heritability of creativity- creativity in patients with brain damage, neurodegenerative conditions, and mental illness- clinical interventions and the relationship between psychopathology and creativity- neuroimaging studies of intelligence and creativity- the neuroscientific basis of creativity-enhancing methodologies- and the information-processing challenges of viewing visual art.
