Gray matter correlates of creative potential: A latent variable voxel-based morphometry study

Emanuel Jauk, Aljoscha C. Neubauer, Beate Dunst, Andreas Fink, Mathias Benedek
2015 NeuroImage  
We investigated regional gray matter volume (rGMV) differences that can be associated with creative potential in a heterogeneous sample of N=135 individuals using voxel-based morphometry (VBM).  ...  The results confirmed and extended previous research: rGMV in the precuneus was associated with ideational originality, but not with ideational fluency.  ...  The valuable contributions of Karl Koschutnig to this study are gratefully acknowledged.  ...

The Neurology of Creativity: Focus on Music [chapter]

Herbert B. Newton
2015 Creativity and Innovation Among Science and Art  
Music is one of the most creative and complex of all human activities and appears to involve numerous regions and pathways within the brain.  ...  The process of listening to music involves many specialized regions, including the auditory pathways, Heschl's gyrus, the planum temporale (PT), and auditory association areas.  ...  There was also a strong correlation between gray matter volume in these regions and musician status, as well as the degree of practice intensity.  ...
