With new tools and theories, researchers have generated a body of neuroscientific research and theorizing to complement the nearly 100 years of sociocultural, cognitive, developmental, educational, and historiometric perspectives on creative processes.
This volume brings together leading researchers from around the world to provide an up-to-date review of empirical and theoretical approaches to the neurobiological bases of creativity. It is organized into six sections, which roughly correspond to a progression of theoretical, genetic, structural, clinical, functional, and applied approaches.
Creativity researchers will find this volume to be a valuable summation for current theoretic and empirical approaches, from which new ideas will be born to inform interdisciplinary perspectives. It will also inspire advanced students and researchers in adjacent fields to consider contributing to the advances in creativity research.
