Creativity – incubation in divergent
then illuminating associations.
With a smaller corpus callosum,
both halves work alone and then
‘ah ha!’ – connection, inspiration.
Distraction as creative tool.
The neuregulin 1 mutation bestows
mixed gifts: poor memory, over-
sensitivity, psychosis and yet
enhanced odds of greater creativity.
Creativity – born, not made yet
is nurtured, taught, shaped by life.
— Christine Rigden
