Abstract of the presentation


The Neuroscience of Creativity


In any field of science, progress depends on a clear conception of the topic under study

and a
toolkit of methods that enables researchers to tackle specific questions in an empirical manner.
Since the pioneering work of Guilford half a century ago, the experimental study of creativity
has been plagued by the lack of both. While much ink has
been spilled over creativity from
many different perspectives, filling shelves of books and articles, we know very little about the
mechanisms, cognitive or neural, that give rise to creative mentation. What’s more, when it
comes to mechanistic explanation
s at the neurocognitive level, the field of creativity is riddled
with examples of myopic theorizing, to say nothing of the copious amounts of deleterious fluff
out there. Open any source on the topic, academic or otherwise, and you will find creativity
li
nked with, say, divergent thinking, low arousal, defocused attention, right brains, sleep,
lateral thinking, altered states of consciousness, or mental illness, to name but a few popular
examples of confused thinking. Commonsense alone tells you that thei
r opposites are also
sources of creative thinking. It didn’t follow, though, as it should have, that these partitions be
either rejected and replaced by new ones or deepened to see what, exactly, is creative about
them. As cognitive neuroscience is making
more serious contact with the knowledge base of
creativity, we must, from the outset, clear the ground of these pernicious fossil traces from a
bygone era.


As an antidote to these theoretical duds, a proposal is defended here that has been a tacit part
o
f a grand framework that Richard Dawkins (2005) put like this: “… all intelligence, all
creativity, and all design, anywhere in the universe, is the direct or indirect product of a
cumulative process equivalent to what we here call Darwinian natural select
ion.” The specifics
fleshing out this global paradigm have been worked out, in impressive detail, for the biosphere


the idea’s home base


and the infosphere. For the latter regions of design space, the basic
move in this process


first generate, then t
est


has been identified as the force driving
creativity at the level of culture (Dawkins, 1976; Mesoudi et al., 2006), the individual
(Campbell, 1960; Simonton, 1999), the mind (Dennett, 1991, 1995), and artificial intelligence
(Koza, 1992). What’s new h
ere, then, is the extension of this basic algorithm to the level of
neural or, actually, neurocognitive processes. After presenting all the creative work that is
manifest in the world, be they biological artifacts, human artifacts, or artificial artifacts,

as part
of a single, unified design space, the proposed framework goes on to specify, in some detail,










22

how, given current models of cognitive neuroscience, this all
-
purpose engineering method
operates at the level of mental processes.

Abstract of the presentation


ACTIVE VISUAL FLICKER TRAINING FOR NEUROTHERAPY OF MENTAL
DISEASES WITH EEG ALPHA ACTIVITY DEFICIT


Background:

Neurotherapy with audio/visual stimul
ation (A/VS) are currently being used by
professional psychologists and neurologists in their practices and by the general public for a
variety of practical uses, including relaxation, stress management, accelerated learning,
retention, perception and spor
ts training. The main effect of neurotherapy is achieved due the
entrainment of the of specific brain rhythms during rhythmic A/VS. Therefore there is reason
to apply A/VS alpha (8
-
12 Hz) training for neurotherapy of Schizophrenia and Alzheimer
disease for

which reduction of EEG alpha activity is a typical effect. The classical VS
technology offers only passive imposing of brain rhythm within the framework of which the
training effect can be expressed very poorly. In the present work the technology of VS fo
r
active training brain mechanisms connected with generation EEG alpha activity is offered. The
principle of this technology consists that the patient is included in a contour of a biological
feedback in which the control of VS device is transferred from d
octor to specific EEG
parameters of that patient.

Methods:
The subjects consisted of fourteen healthy right
-
handed volunteers aged from 21 to
27 years. White light flashes generated by the VS system (MindSpa, Neurotech Inc.) for 15
min. Light flashes gener
ates at individual alpha pick frequency (Test_0) or controlled by EEG
parameters (Test_1) is managed by a special controller. The ability of brain mechanisms for
generation of rhythmic activity (AGRA) was estimated on amplitude, peak period and width
(r
eflecting the degree of rhythmicity) of the histogram of amplitudes/periods distributions of
alpha waves in 8 min EEG records from right occipital are. These records wore made under
standard rhythmic VS with frequency tuned to individual alpha activity in
15 minutes after
previous Test_0 or Test_1 VS with same duration. Test_0 was the same VS as standard VS
and Test_1 was EEG controlled VS.

Results:

There was no case when the test_0 would show increase of AGRA. At the same time
in the test_1 in most cases

(9 subjects from 14) there was an increase of AGRA. Histogram
width was more sensitive to AGRA, because significant differences in width between trains
between two tests (decreasing in Test_1 compare with Test_0) occurred more often than
differences in am
plitude. There were significant increasing the proportion of alpha waves with
high amplitude and middle periods of alpha waves to standard VS after EEG controlled VS
compare with condition after passive VS, suggesting increased AGRA to EEG controlled VS










31

(T
est_1), while there were no significant effect on AGRA after passive VS (Test_0).

Conclusions:
These findings show that EEG controlled VS has more expressed training effect
for brain mechanisms related with producing of EEG alpha activity.
