Summary
  • "In Creativity and the Brain, Kenneth M. Heilman explores the possible brain mechanisms which underlie creativity by reviewing the existing evidence and putting forward new ideas. On the way, he discusses the relationships between creativity and intelligence, brain anatomy, neuropharmacology, addiction, handedness, gender differences, and mood states such as depression. He also addresses the effects of neurological disorders and aging, as well as the influence of environmental factors such as tolerance and nurturing."
  • "The book will be of interest to neuroscientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists, and educators. The engaging and succinct style of this book also makes it appealing to students and researchers from a variety of disciplines who have an interest in understanding the brain mechanisms underlying creativity."--Jacket
