The brains of highly creative people work differently than others: study

Los Angeles California) [US]April 17 (APP): A new study has found that more creative people work differently than others, their creativity makes them enjoy work and they can work faster.
The research findings are published in the journal, “Aesthetic Psychology, Creativity, and the Art.”
The exceptional creative visual artists and scientists – known as the “Big C” creative genres – voluntarily undergo MRI brain imaging, giving researchers in psychiatry, behavioral sciences and psychology the idea that How the brain connects and interacts with areas when asked to perform. Tasks that test creative thinking.
“Our results show that the most creative people have a special connection to the brain that is willing to stay away from beatings,” said Ariana Anderson, a professor at the Northern Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior at UCLA. Author.
Although the concept of creativity has been studied for decades, little is known about its biological basis, and even little is known about the brain mechanisms of extraordinary creative people, said senior author Robert Bilder. Director of the Taintenbaum Center for. Northern Institute.

This uniquely designed study included highly creative people representing two different domains of creativity – the visual arts and sciences – and used an IQ-comparable comparison group to identify creativity markers, not just Intelligence. Researchers have analyzed how connections between brain regions have developed globally and locally.
“Exploratory creativity has been associated with more random communication globally – a pattern that is less‘ effective ’but distant brain nodes seem to be useful in communicating with each other,” Builder said.
He added: “The patterns in other regional brain areas vary, depending on how people perform tasks.
Using aerial route maps for comparison, the researchers said that the brain activity of the creators of the Big C was similar to that of leaving flights to connecting centers to travel to a smaller city.
“In terms of mental communication, while everyone is stuck in a three-hour delay at a large airport, high-powered private jets are sent straight to the far destination,” Anderson said.
She added: “These more random connections may be less effective than most, but the structure allows the brain to ‘take the road in less travel’ and make new connections.”
Bilder, who has more than 30 years of experience in research on brain and behavioral relationships, said: “It simply came to our notice then. (ANI)
