Knowledge of the brain may be useful in understanding creativity.
In this section of the Creativity Web, various models of the
brain and the creative process are presented. Powering the brain
with food, oxygen, drugs, together with sleep, relaxation,
and music are also discussed. By being aware of how you
use your brain can help you take advantage of your
individual strengths and weaknesses.
Models of the Brain
A series of pages giving a brief history of the various
views of the creative process, starting with the
Ancient Greeks and moving on to the 19th Century Romantics,
through to Wallis's model and the Osborne-Parnes
CPS model (Creative Problem Solving). Other
models have also been proposed.
Healthy Body ... Healthy Mind
A healthy mind in a healthy body. Leonardo da Vinci was
known as the strongest man in Florence, and Gary Kasparov
(the chess champion) weight-trains, runs and boxes in
preparation for mental combat over the chess board.
What are the main elements of physical health that lead
to mental health and the raising of the general
intelligence and creativity?
