The Neuroscience of Creativity

ORDER BRAINCRAFT MERCH! 🧠https://store.dftba.com/collections/braincraft SUBSCRIBE to BrainCraft! 👉 http://ow.ly/rt5IE My Twitter https://twitter.com/nessyhill | Instagram https://instagram.com/nessyhill Your brain uses lots of different pathways to communicate – which form complex networks in your brain. Creativity depends on the cooperation of two competing networks: one that generates spontaneous thoughts (the default mode network) and the executive control center of the brain that governs everything else. Our random, free-flowing thoughts that are worthy of further exploration pop into our consciousness when they're recruited by the executive control network.

The Surprising Similarities Between Twister and Intelligence

ORDER BRAINCRAFT MERCH! 🧠https://store.dftba.com/collections/braincraft SUBSCRIBE to BrainCraft! 👉 http://ow.ly/rt5IE Network Neuroscience offers a new way to look at our brains – where researchers organise our brain's connections as patterns and look at how those connections interact, change and stay the same when we perform different tasks. It turns out that the flexibility of those connections can indicate how quickly we can learn or multitask – and is a top predictor of intelligence.

Artificial Intelligence Can Hallucinate, Too.
