Is there any truth to the idea that creativity originates from the right side of the brain? What is the link between mental illness and creativity? What role can psychedelics play in boosting creativity Professor Anna Abraham tackles these questions and more in her book, "The Creative Brain: Myths and Truths". In this interview, Abraham provides a science-based understanding of the creative mind that dispels the pervasive myths we hold about the human brain—but also uncovers the truth at their cores. Drawing on cognitive psychology and neuroscience, she also offers an examination of human creativity that reveals the true complexity underlying our conventional beliefs about the brain.
