Experts describe current perspectives and experimental approaches to understanding the neural bases of creativity. 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The publication of this substantial book-length treatment, collecting new chapters by over two dozen researchers, indicates that a coherent field has been born, with an exciting period of growth and discovery ahead of it. Neuroscience of Creativity, edited by Vartanian, Bristol, and Kaufman, presents a fascinating collection of theory, review, and new research, in which scientists approach the neuroscience of creativity from a wide variety of angles, but all are focused on the shared goal of understanding the neural basis of creativity, and they often make connections with each other's research. -
