On Creative Capacity Building

Through the generosity of the Hasso Plattner Institute, Stanford's, and Dr. Allan Reiss' Center for Interdisciplinary Brain Sciences Research Center at Stanford, we studied the neuro-cognitive foundation and sustainability of creative capacity enhancement and design thinking.

Using an amalgam of design-thinking skills training from the (ME366: Creative Gym), state of the art neuroimaging methodologies (functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging; fMRI), and a well-established battery of neuropsychological assessments we examined: (1) what brain regions facilitate creative thinking; (2) whether we can enhance creative

capacity in healthy adults using targeted but domain-general design-thinking-based training; (3) which brain regions would facilitate this enhancement of creativity; and (4) whether enhanced creative capacity can be sustained, with or without additional skills training, when assessed at short-and long-term follow-up.
