Excellent reading

Screen Shot 2015-09-01 at 1.14.17 PMI suggest you find a quiet spot when your brain is very alert and read this report that was put together after a two-day meeting called “How Creativity Works in the Brain”. The meeting was sponsored by the NEA and the Santa Fe Institute and the purpose was to:

  • evaluate the legacy of creativity of research; and
  • explore new knowledge at the intersections of cognitive psychology, neurobiology, learning, complex systems, and the arts.

The conversation included folks from a wide variety of disciplines including psychology, neurobiology, education, and the arts. From the meeting came ideas and themes that reflect experiences and knowledge that will impact the future. The need for more integrated thinking and working is necessary if we are to tap into the brain power of all groups.
