[TALK] The Brain Behind Creativity

18.10.2019 14:30 - Cristoforo Colombo Hall, Mind Hotel Slovenija

Has creativity anything to do with the brain and if so, where exactly can we find this fountain of sparkling new ideas? Is creativity a truly human trait or can we find creative animals? Up to now – much more questions rather than clear answers… In his talk Bogdan will focus on the existing knowledge aiming to explain creativity from neuro-scientific point of view. He will use as example brain imaging studies unravelling the mystery how an individual hard-wired brain is capable to produce surprisingly unique content. Finally, Bogdan will present current techniques used to modulate particular brain functions and speculate about their potential to enhance creativity.
