Rappler Talk: Creativity and the human mind

MANILA, Philippines – Rappler talked to neuroscientist and psychiatrist Dr. Nancy Andreasen about creativity and the human mind.

A recipient of the US National Medal of Science, Andreasen is the author of numerous books, among them The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius. She talks about the relationship between creativity, genius, and mental illness, and the complex wirings of the human brain responsible for this phenomenon.

She was one of the keynote speakers in the 15th Annual Asia Pacific Network of Science and Technology Centres (ASPAC) 2015 Conference, hosted by the Mind Museum. (AS IT HAPPENED: ASPAC 2015 at The Mind Museum, April 27-28)
