Biomedical device design discovery team approach to teaching physiology to undergraduate bioengineering students. (1/131)

Teaching effectiveness is enhanced by generating student enthusiasm, by using active learning techniques, and by convincing students of the value of acquiring knowledge in the area of study. We have employed a technique to teach physiology to bioengineering students that couples students' enthusiasm for their chosen field, bioengineering, with an active learning process in which students are asked to design a biomedical device to enhance, replace, or create a new cellular or organ system function. Each assignment is designed with specific constraints that serve to direct students' attention to specific areas of study and that require students to create original designs. Preventing students from using existing designs spurred student invention and enthusiasm for the projects. Students were divided into groups or "design discovery teams" as might be done in a biomedical device industry setting. Students then researched the physiological issues that would need to be addressed to produce an acceptable design. Groups met with faculty to brainstorm and to obtain approval for their general design concepts before proceeding. Students then presented their designs to the instructors in a structured, written outline form and to the class as a 10-minute oral presentation. Grades were based on the outline, oral presentation, and peer evaluations (group members anonymously rated contributions of other members of their team). We believe that this approach succeeded in generating enthusiasm for learning physiology by allowing the students to think creatively in their chosen field of study and that it has resulted in students developing a more thorough understanding of difficult physiological concepts than would have been achieved with a traditional didactic lecture approach.  (+info)

Functional correlates of musical and visual ability in frontotemporal dementia. (2/131)

BACKGROUND: The emergence of new skills in the setting of dementia suggests that loss of function in one brain area can release new functions elsewhere. AIMS: To characterise 12 patients with frontotemporal dementia (FTD) who acquired, or sustained, new musical or visual abilities despite progression of their dementia. METHOD: Twelve patients with FTD who acquired or maintained musical or artistic ability were compared with 46 patients with FTD in whom new or sustained ability was absent. RESULTS: The group with musical or visual ability performed better on visual, but worse on verbal tasks than did the other patients with FTD. Nine had asymmetrical left anterior dysfunction. Nine showed the temporal lobe variant of FTD. CONCLUSION: Loss of function in the left anterior temporal lobe may lead to facilitation of artistic or musical skills. Patients with the left-sided temporal lobe variant of FTD offer an unexpected window into the neurological mediation of visual and musical talents.  (+info)

Assets-oriented community assessment. (3/131)

Determining how to promote community health requires that community health workers first assess where the community stands. The authors maintain that Healthy Communities initiatives are better served by assets-oriented assessment methods than by standard "problem-focused" or "needs-based" approaches. An assets orientation allows community members to identify, support, and mobilize existing community resources to create a shared vision of change, and encourages greater creativity when community members do address problems and obstacles.  (+info)

Eliminating health disparities among minority women: a report on conference workshop process and outcomes. (4/131)

A national conference convened in May 2001 explored health disparities among minority women. It included 5 one-hour workshops that randomly assigned each participant to 1 of 4 groups. Groups generated recommendations on conference topics and from these identified priority recommendations. Trained facilitators guided groups through brainstorming and weighted voting processes; individual recommendations were submitted in writing. Participants generated 598 recommendations, 71 of them voted as priorities; these were analyzed to capture participants' "messages." Central themes focused on access issues and cultural incompetence as deterrents to the elimination of health disparities and on education, funding, and community-based, community-driven research as mechanisms for change. Strategies for change included reinventing or expanding the role of minority communities and changing health care itself and "how" it does its work. The essential element in all recommendations was community leadership and control.  (+info)

The use of brainstorming for teaching human anatomy. (5/131)

Interactive teaching techniques have been used mainly in clinical teaching, with little attention given to their use in basic science teaching. With the aim of partially filling this gap, this study outlines an interactive approach to teaching anatomy based on the use of "brainstorming." The results of the students' critique of the teaching techniques are also included. Seventy-five students from the first-year nursing curriculum were tested by a structured questionnaire after three brainstorming sessions. The overall response to these sessions was very positive, indicating that students perceived this interactive technique as both interesting and useful. Furthermore, this approach may provide a useful strategy when learning the clinical courses of the upcoming academic years.  (+info)

Factors of home dream recall: a structural equation model. (6/131)

Previous research has indicated that personality factors such as openness to experience, creativity, visual memory, attitude toward dreams, and sleep behavior is related to home dream recall frequency (DRF). However, a study investigating all areas simultaneously within one sample in order to determine the percentage of variance explained by all variables and to take intercorrelations between the influencing factors into account has not been performed till now. The present study with 444 participants fills this gap. Using several indicators for each of the variables mentioned above, a structural equation model was tested. Although the model fit was satisfying, the four factors which were significantly related to DRF: personality (openness to experience, thin boundaries, absorption), creativity, nocturnal awakenings, and attitude toward dreams, explained only 8.4% of the total variance. As this value is considerably lower than those of studies investigating a single influencing factor and using similar measurement instruments in similar samples, one might speculate about possible expectancy effects in these previous studies, an effect which has been demonstrated for DRF in the laboratory setting. In addition, the small percentage of explained variance of each single factors (<3%) may indicate that other, in this study unmeasured, variables such as sleep duration (state aspect), introspection, and cognitive functioning immediately upon awakening (sleep inertia) show substantial covariance with the interindividual differences in DRF. Future studies should focus on longitudinal aspects in order to differentiate between state versus trait factors (although methodologic issues, e.g. the effect of the measurement technique on DRF itself, have to be clarified) and investigate additional variables which might be associated with DRF (see above).  (+info)

Creative problem solving and social cooperation of effective physical therapy practice: a pioneer study and overview. (7/131)

Action research (AR) has an important role to play in educating physical therapists. Increasing efforts should be encouraged to instigate AR programs in physical therapy practice and clinical education. Such programs commonly require considerable effort and understanding by clinical instructors, and require adoption of new educational methods. AR programs can lead physical therapists and clinicians to be more questioning and reflective in evaluating practical questions regarding patient therapy and education. The purpose of this article is to educate the readers on the importance of AR and to provide a few relevant references on that topic. A specific study is described in this paper in which physical therapy clinical instructors participated in a structured workshop designed to demonstrate the values of AR and how such values can be incorporated in teaching their students. AR can lead to improved therapist-patient interaction and help solve specific practical problems arising during therapy sessions.  (+info)

Socioeconomic position in early life, birth weight, childhood cognitive function, and adult mortality. A longitudinal study of Danish men born in 1953. (8/131)

OBJECTIVE: To examine the relation between socioeconomic position in early life and mortality in young adulthood, taking birth weight and childhood cognitive function into account. DESIGN: A longitudinal study with record linkage to the Civil Registration System and Cause of Death Registry. The data were analysed using Cox regression. SETTING: The metropolitan area of Copenhagen, Denmark. SUBJECTS: 7493 male singletons born in 1953, who completed a questionnaire with various cognitive measures, in school at age 12 years, and for whom birth certificates with data on birth and parental characteristics had been traced manually in 1965. This population was followed up from April 1968 to January 2002 for information on mortality. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mortality from all causes, cardiovascular diseases, and violent deaths. RESULTS: Men whose fathers were working class or of unknown social class at time of birth had higher mortality rates compared with those whose fathers were high/middle class: hazard ratio 1.39 (95% CI 1.15 to 1.67) and 2.04 (95% CI 1.48 to 2.83) respectively. Birth weight and childhood cognitive function were both related to father's social class and inversely associated with all cause mortality. The association between father's social class and mortality attenuated (HR(working class)1.30 (1.08 to 1.56); HR(unknown class)1.81 (1.30 to 2.52)) after control for birth weight and cognitive function. Mortality from cardiovascular diseases and violent deaths was also significantly higher among men with fathers from the lower social classes. CONCLUSION: The inverse association between father's social class at time of birth and early adult mortality remains, however somewhat attenuated, after adjustment for birth weight and cognitive function.  (+info)

Creativity is the hallmark of human cognition, yet scientific understanding of creative processes is limited. However, there is increasing interest in revealing the neural correlates of human creativity. Though many of these studies, pioneering in nature, help demystification of creativity, but the field is still dominated by popular beliefs in associating creativity with right brain thinking, divergent thinking, altered states and so on (Dietrich and Kanso, 2010) . In this article, we discuss a computational framework for creativity based on Baars global workspace theory (Baars, 1988) enhanced with mechanisms based on information theory. Next we propose a neurocognitive architecture of creativity with a strong focus on various facets (i.e., unconscious thought theory, mind wandering, spontaneous brain states) of un/pre-conscious brain responses. Our principal argument is that pre-conscious creativity happens prior to conscious creativity happens prior to conscious creativity and the proposed

A simple but accurate review on this new Human-Computer Interactions (HCI) angle for promoting creativity has been written by Todd Lubart, an invitation full of creative ideas to develop further this new field. Groupware and other Computer Supported Collaborative Work (CSCW) platforms are now the stage of Network Creativity on the web or on other private networks. These tools have made more obvious the existence of a more connective, cooperative and collective nature of creativity rather than the prevailing individual one. Creativity Research on Global Virtual Teams is showing that the creative process is affected by the national identities, cognitive and conative profiles, anonymous interactions at times and many other factors affecting the teams members, depending on the early or later stages of the cooperative creative process. They are also showing how NGOs cross-cultural virtual teams innovation in Africa would also benefit from the pooling of best global practices online. Such tools ...
When you think of the term creativity, what do you think of? Maybe you think of drawing or painting. Maybe its being creative in the kitchen and coming up with new recipes. The concept of creativity can mean different things to different people. In Educational Psychology, Anita Woolfolk (2013) defines the term creativity as "the ability to produce work that is original, but still appropriate and useful" (p.339). In the world of teaching, how can we encourage our students to think creatively and be critical thinkers, but also perform the tasks they are required to perform? This may be a problem for many educators. Woolfolk and others (2013) suggests that "creativity is important for an individuals psychological, physical, social, and career success" (p.342). Therefore, it is important that we try to foster and develop a childs creativity and critical thinking skills ...

This paper presents a model of applied creativity which identifies the cognitive processes involved, and shows how they are related. Previous concepts of cognition, intelligence and learning are integrated with a number of significant themes in creativity research, and their relationships to the proposed model are discussed. Knowledge apprehension and knowledge utilization are identified as two bi-polar dimensions of cognitive activity involved in creative thinking. These two dimensions form the basis for a dynamic model of applied creativity, which identifies four distinct and successive stages of the creative process called generation, conceptualization, optimization, and implementation. Examples of how the model has been applied in organizational settings are provided, explaining how and why the theory works. Implications are discussed.. < Return to List ...
Explaining Creativity is an accessible introduction to the latest scientific research on creativity. The book summarizes and integrates a broad range of research in psychology and related scientific fields. In the last 40 years, psychologists, anthropologists, and sociologists have devoted increased attention to creativity; we now know more about creativity than at any point in history.
This panel will discuss group processes that promote social creativity in science, engineering, arts, and humanities. We will offer positive and negative examples of social creativity projects, while suggesting research directions for dramatically increased social participation. The goal is to develop strategies that would expand resources and opportunities for research and education in social creativity. This requires our community to develop a unified position, then reach out to national science funding agencies, while building the case for the importance of this topic beyond our own community. How can social creativity, collaborative discovery, distributed innovation, and collective intelligence be framed as an international priority to cope with the problems of the 21st century and how can we identify a clear set of research challenges? The theme of technology-mediated social participation is outlined in the white paper for a National Initiative for Social Participation ...
Thats the eternal question. Although there have been no studies to link BP and creativity, we all know that it is.

Creativity is comprised of four factors. Just remember this equation: Creativity = Surprise + Originality + Beauty + Utility. When you read this post you will find that there are four common criteria that are often used when defining creativity:
1. Flexibility
2. Originality

Creativity often involves the development of original ideas that are useful or influential. Most research and writing on creativity has focused on individual creativity. However, with the information explosion and growing necessity of specialisation, the development of innovations will increasingly require group interaction at some stage of the process. Most organisations and much of the scientific process now rely on work of teams with diverse skills and knowledge.
Creativity and language are deeply connected human abilities, according to linguist Harry van der Hulst, Skidmore s new distinguished visiting fellow in the arts and sciences. The College s fourth visiting scholar supported by a Henry Luce Foundation grant to explore scientific and artistic creativity, van der Hulst asserts, Language is inherently creative: there are aspects of creativity in the sentences we produce and in the things we discuss spontaneously.. This semester van der Hulst is giving a series of public lectures entitled Creativity and Language. Although his specialty is phonology which he describes as the study of the perceivable form of language, spoken or signed his lectures will also cover the nature of sign languages; the evolutionary emergence of the sound systems of language; language acquisition, including what language skills are inborn and what aspects of language must be learned; and ways in which different languages arise. For example, in one talk on the confusing ...
Introduction and orientation. The South African Norms and Standards for Teacher Education (Department of Education, (2000:15-16), Curriculum 2005, the Outcomes-Based curriculum that was implemented in South African schools from 1997 and its revisions since then, place emphasis on creative thinking within an academic milieu. The Norms and Standards for Educators (SA, 27/1996), requires that teachers must be fluent ("consider a range of possibilities for action"), encourage and model creative thinking ("create a learning environment in which critical and creative thinking is encouraged" and "adapt to change and unforeseen circumstances"), be original ("design original learning programmes") and flexible and able to elaborate ("adapting learning programmes so that they are appropriate for the context in which teaching will occur"). Compared to what literature reveals regarding creative thinking in an academic milieu, the policy requirements augur well with the views of Hunter, Bedell and Mumford ...
Researchers at the University of Michigan and Eckerd College also found that ADHD individuals preferred different thinking styles. They like generating ideas, but are not good about completing the tasks.. Lead author Holly White, an assistant professor of psychology at Eckerd, and Priti Shah, an associate professor at U-M, replicated their study from 2006, and those results found that ADHD individuals show better performance on standardized creativity tests.. Previous research regarding individuals with ADHD focused on laboratory measures of creativity.. "We knew that ADHD individuals did better at laboratory measures of divergent thinking, but we didnt know if that would translate to real-life achievement. The current study suggests that it does," Shah said.. Divergent thinking involves generating several possible solutions to a problem.. ADHD is neuropsychological disorder that involves inattentiveness, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. Most individuals get the disorder in childhood and it ...

Creativity facilitates scientists in their investigations of new problems or with a new orientation. However, K-12 science education typically does not acknowledge this aspect of creativity. Science/Technology/Society provides an avenue for creativity when addressing inquiry. The use of Cothron et al.s [1] four question strategy allows for a planning approach for inquiry.

Yesterday, I went out into a summer field and was stunned once more by the immense creativity that surrounds us. What an amazing variety of trees, grasses, scents, and birdsong! The wildflowers a riot of color! It is easy to forget this glory as we reel from the many disasters in our world. Rather than awe, we may feel helpless, frustrated, or afraid. Surely, we need to make room for these feelings. But the sheer wonder of existence is that each of us also shares in the vast creativity of the universe. It is our inheritance, and the kind of creativity that is most needed in our time. Every one of us has an inborn gift to bring to the world. It may not be fancy. But it is uniquely ours. We may be completely unaware of what our gift is; it can be different from anything weve ever done. Still, were more likely to learn about it when were far from the cultures noisy demands for attention and undistracted by a mind full of thoughts: when were in a field, in a forest, or on the beach, simply ...
Dance improvisation is the process of spontaneously creating movement. Development of improvised movement material is facilitated through a variety of creative explorations including body mapping through levels, shape and dynamics schema. Improvisation is a free, seemingly unstructured, less technically strict and impulsive form that draws inspiration from everyday dance practices and influences. It is a movement technique that is capable of evoking dramatic and thought-provoking content just as well as more codified western dance techniques such as ballet and non-western movement forms. Dance improvisation is not only about creating new movement but is also defined as freeing the body from habitual movement patterns (see Postmodern dance and Judson Dance Theater). Dancer and singer Michael Jackson combined improvisation in both of those definitions, insisting that he had interest in performing a dance to Billie Jean only if he could do it a new way each time. A lot of improvisation is focused ...

This article explores new avenues for academic research on the creative city. Creativity offers opportunities for urban development and the personal development of urban inhabitants, but its adoption in urban policy is frequently criticized for being welded to economic imperatives and a neoliberal agenda. Urban policymakers worldwide continue to adopt narrow conceptualizations of creativity while largely ignoring extensive academic criticism of the concept, suggesting that academic concerns with creativity in urban policy need to be reoriented more effectively. This article develops four key theoretical points on the creative city and creative urban policy. It argues that the focus of enquiry should shift towards a more in-depth understanding of how creativity is constructed, contested and performed in specific urban contexts, understanding the creative policy gap between policymakers and those engaged in all kinds of creative practice, and developing forms of artistic intervention to ...

Creative activities are too often thought of as childhood pastimes, and many of us gave them up early in life. But why do we long for them still? Are creativity and biology interconnected? Artist and author Lynda Barry thinks everything we call "art" has something in common, something that feels alive and is contained and transported by something that is not alive -- a book, a song, or a painting. She explores our innate ability to work with images and asks what the biological function of this thing we call "the arts" might be. Caution: This talk includes swear words, party tricks, and jokes about balls.. Lynda Barry is assistant professor of interdisciplinary creativity at the Wisconsin Institute of Discoverys Image Lab. Widely credited with expanding the literary, thematic, and emotional range of American comics through her groundbreaking weekly strip Ernie Pooks Comeek, she has written 17 books, worked as a commentator for NPR, and adapted her novel into a long-running off-Broadway ...
This thesis interrogates the new music technology and its relationship to creativity, musicality and learning in the Key Stage 31 curriculum. In doing so it considers the effectiveness of the technology, what value pupils and teachers might place on technologically mediated musical interactions and how this relates to the principles enshrined in the National Curriculum. The research also explores the views of teachers in relation to the nature of creativity and learning in the music curriculum and their role in promoting it. The research was carried out across five sites: a PGCE music course, a year 7, year 8, and year 9 Key Stage 3 music classroom, and a panel of secondary music teachers. It was located in a qualitative paradigm which made use of observational and interview techniques. The research also probed the pupils creative outcomes through detailed analysis. The findings suggest that the new technology can afford creative musical engagement through the manipulation of ready-made musical ...

One of the first things you learn in college mathematics is how to reframe a problem in order to solve it. Well, I think the same can be true with real-world social or political problems. With a bit of creativity and ingenuity, seemingly intractable problems can be reframed in a way that allows them to be tackled and solved. Often the solutions come from the most unlikely corners.. One example could be war. How do you convey the horror and human cost of war in a way that motivates people to act? Well, Charles Joseph Minard, a French civil engineer in the 1800s, used one of the tools at his disposal: data visualization. He is known for creating perhaps the best info graphic of all time (pictured above). This graphic shows the loss of life of Napoleons army as they attacked Moscow and then retreated. Minard created this graphic to speak out against hegemonic leaders who let their egos lead to catastrophic loss of life. Where is the Minard for our current generation? Maybe it is you.. ...

Creativity is often veiled in mystery. Is there a secret formula for tapping into the wellspring of new ideas, strategies and creative projects that can fulfill our highest vision for our lives?. And when we do find our creative power, how do we maintain and even enhance it as the years go by?. Exercising your creative powers will transform a mediocre life into an exceptional one. When we are a fountain of creativity, we can advance our careers, build our businesses and generate exciting new gifts to support the world - while generating a healthy level of income.. And we live with a lot more pleasure and enjoyment, because expressing our creativity is one of the most exciting, dynamic and fulfilling ways to spend our time, whether were creating a painting or designing a program.. Too often, creativity experts focus on cognitive gimmicks to lift you out of creative ruts, but the secret to accessing your creativity is knowing how to tap into your spiritual intelligence. Thats right, the highest ...
So, this study is suggesting that oxytocin, the love and bonding neurotransmitter, may play a bigger role in other activities than previously thought. This makes a lot of sense intuitively - of course, if you are in a state of liking, bonding, attraction, inhibition-reduction, and novelty-seeking, you are more likely to be creative, or be able to quickly adopt new ideas or new ways of thinking.. http://scan.oxfordjournals.org/content/early/2013/07/16/scan.nst094.abstract Oxytonergic circuitry sustains and enables creative cognition in humans. "Using double-blind placebo-controlled between-subjects designs, Studies 3-6 (N = 191) finally showed that intranasal oxytocin (vs matching placebo) reduced analytical reasoning, and increased holistic processing, divergent thinking and creative performance. We conclude that the oxytonergic circuitry sustains and enables the day-to-day creativity humans need for survival and prosperity and discuss implications. ". ...
This research is grounded in strategy process theory and contingency theory and the main research aims are to investigate the antecedent factors affecting organisational improvisation and to identify how improvisation determines firm performance. This study is the first to examine the antecedent factors, which are categorised onto managerial and organisational factors that drive improvisation. The managerial factors contain the reasoning ability of managers (intuitive and rational) and managers characteristics (selfconfidence, managers expertise and attitude towards risk‐taking). Whilst the organisational factors include organisational structure and characteristics (goal clarity, organisational structure, organisational flexibility and organisational risk‐taking), and information processing (organisational information and organisational memory). Environmental turbulence (technology, market and competitive) is examined as an external moderating factor to the improvisation-performance ...
Creativity has been proposed to be either the result of solely right hemisphere processes or of interhemispheric interactions. Little information is available, however, concerning the neuronal foundations of creativity. In this study, we introduced a new artistic task, designing a new tool (a pen), which let us quantitatively evaluate creativity by three indices of originality. These scores were analyzed in combination with brain activities measured by functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The results were compared between subjects who had been formally trained in design (experts) and novice subjects. In the experts, creativity was quantitatively correlated with the degree of dominance of the right prefrontal cortex over that of the left, but not with that of the right or left prefrontal cortex alone. In contrast, in novice subjects, only a negative correlation with creativity was observed in the bilateral inferior parietal cortex. We introduced structure equation modeling to analyze the ...
Creativity block, similar to writers block, is a mental state that makes you feel incapacitated and unable to generate new ideas to move the process of whatever you are working on ahead.

The visual below from Gonzalo Gomez features some ideas to help you unleash your creative thinking. Here are the ones that stood out to me ...
NB Think tank seems to be just a fashionable term for some mutually selected like minded friends who have a common view, and the ability to articulate it in corridors of influence and power. I have no idea who chooses which think tanks get quoted and which get ignored. Probably the Guardian readers at the BBC. Someone noted that when the BBC introduces a spokesman from a conservative minded think tank, they are introduced as a right wing think tank, but when they introduce a left wing think tank, it is introduced as a respected or influential think tank, never a left wing one. Similarly, ID supporters are always assumed to be motivated by (usually Christian) religion, but the athiesm of most of the promoters of Darwinism is usually glossed over or considered irrelevant. Stephen Meyer made this point (in his book Signature in the Cell) about an interview he had with Eugenie Scott, where Meyers Christianity was made the main issue (thus preventing the merits of his mathematical and ...
The data scientist must use creativity to combine these five elements (Harmony, Rhythm, Flow, Balance, and Focus) together in appropriate proportions to convey the messages in interesting and informative ways to the audience. The creative process includes divergent thinking, which involves the generation of multiple answers to a problem; conceptual blending, in which solutions arise from the intersection of two quite different frames of reference; and, honing, in which an acceptable solution emerges from iterating over many successive unacceptable versions of the solution. In practice, creativity is often a team sport. When several people from diverse backgrounds come together to solve a problem, they can more easily engage in divergent thinking and conceptual blending. Honing is just good, old-fashioned elbow grease. Please do not fall in love with your first attempt. Think of your first attempt as the beginning (not the end) of a conversation that will engage both members of the data science ...
I recently finished reading "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman. I havent read a fantasy book for a while, and I very much enjoyed it. Though I find Gaimans writing too vague to be satisfactory because the scientist in my wants more explanations, the same scientist is also jealous - jealous of the freedom that a fantasy writer has when turning ideas into products.. Creativity in theoretical physics is in comparison a very tamed and well-trained beast. It is often only appreciated if it fills in existing gaps or if it neatly builds on existing knowledge. The most common creative process is to combine two already existing ideas. This works well because it doesnt require others to accept too much novelty or to follow leaps of thought, leaps that might have been guided by intuition that stubbornly refuses to be cast into verbal form ...
In the summer of 1961 an MIT student by the name of Steve „Slug‟ Russell was tinkering with the campus computer. It was not a very complex computer by today‟s standards, but by the standard of that time it was highly complex, not to mention expensive. Steve was exploring the possibilities of that machine - more precisely, trying to demonstrate with an engaging and fun program the capabilities of this machine. And making a game was, in his eyes, the best way to go about it. This creative achievement would not only be the start of Steve‟s career, but also of an industry that, just as in this first game, thrives on creativity and tinkering with computers. The result of Steve‟s tinkering was the video game Spacewar. This game is credited as the first „real‟ video game (Demaria and Wilson 2004, Kent 2001). Despite its crude setup, consisting of two spaceships dueling on a round monitor, it quickly achieved immense popularity. It is said that the game was copied onto most university ...

In 1983 at the FutureWorld Expo in Los Angeles, Visionary Artists Resources Including Other Unique Services (V.A.R.I.O.U.S.), a 501c-3 organization founded by Maui artist Peter H. Rosen, demonstrated a concept for a "new school" and Location Based Entertainmet venue called Creativity Cafe (then referred to as an Artists Resource Center). They taught computer graphics to the public and videotaped community luminaries; interviewing them for a planned program to be called Choices: Solutions for a Better World. These images were also captured on the worlds first video disk recorder; a Panasonic OMDR. They would love to find the person who has that disk...Their images start at frame 10,000. After four days of interviews, the last person videotaped was Buckminster Fuller, a month before he died. A total of twelve hours of tape including that interview (the only one post produced into a 13 minute program and available from V.A.R.I.O.U.S. for $29.95) was shot.

First, approach your writing in a completely different way. Develop a daily writing practice that involves no explicit connection to the academic world. One way is to write Morning Pages: three pages of stream-of-consciousness writing first thing in the morning. Shelley Berc is a firm believer in fragmented writing. She says, "We learn from images, ideas and pieces of things if we know how to value them." Writing without thinking will result in these fragments, and the more you do it, the more you will learn how to put those fragments together to form new insights.. Second, if you enjoy a creative endeavor like painting, playing an instrument or sketching, pick it up again. Keep in mind that writing, or making art or music, is a byproduct of creativity. Pursing such artistic skills will help the brain draw new connections. A brushstroke could lead to a new research insight, a short story to a new idea for teaching students. Einstein turned to his violin to get his ideas. (As a side note, Elsa ...
This course explores the creativity of madness and the madness of creativity. Starting with an examination of the history of madness and historical and cultural attitudes toward madness, we will address the general equation between madness and creativity through various works of literature and culture as a way of engaging students in the creative (and often chaotic) process of thinking outside of the box of accepted cultural, social, and ethical norms of thought and behavior. We will thus explore creativity and of madness as both definitions and symptoms of humanity in order to explore how we often avoid thinking about their more complex nature. We will bring in works and characters primarily from the music and literature to frame the questions and guide conversations. We will approach and assess student comprehension and experience of course material through lectures, tests, reflections, short essays, large and small group discussion, play activities, workshops.. Above all we want students to ...
SKQ: I think it takes creativity to be a good scientist (even more to be a great one) -- but I think the nature of science (and engineering and, really, just the normal machinations of life) tends to quash creativity. I believe everyone is creative by nature, so I dont think people who are drawn to the sciences or engineering are less creative to start out. But I do believe that some of the very detail-oriented work that is required in science tends to make it difficult to step back and take the more creative leaps. And I dont think we teach creativity to science types -- one can argue we dont teach creativity at all, but it does need room and encouragement for expression. Theres a fascinating look at this phenomenon with Candle problem -- a cognitive test that shows how the initial setup of the problem is presented has a huge effect on the ability of people to perceive the solution to the problem. The highly creative top 10% will see the creative solution no matter how its presented; but ...

Its difficult to discuss emotions relating to creative artistic expression without digging at the roots of emotions themselves, but its not hard to experience the emotive nature of creativity.

Minerva creativity wins through at ESOF 16 The Minerva team achieved great success for itself and the science it represents at the Euro Science Open Forum (ESOF) in Manchester this Summer, 2016.. Not only did Minerva create a stand that was buzzing throughout the event promoting its lead knowledge transfer project CommBeBiz, but Minerva also staged two, highly successful events. The focus of the events - won through a highly competitive process prior to ESOF - was for early stage European researchers and another of its projects, I.Family..

From: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/dr-larry-dossey/creativity_b_4440941.html Posted: 12/16/2013 12:03 pm When developmental psychologist Joseph Chilton Pearce was in his early 30s, teaching humanities in a college, he was engrossed in theology and the psychology of Carl Jung. Pearce describes himself as "obsessed" by the nature of the God-human relationship, and his reading on the subject was extensive. One morning as he was preparing for an early class, his 5-year-old son came into his room, sat down on the edge of the bed, and launched into a 20-minute discourse on the nature of God and man. "He spoke in perfect, publishable sentences," Pearce writes, "without pause or haste, and in a flat monotone. He used complex theological terminology and told me, it seemed, everything there was to know. As I listened, astonished, the hair rose on my neck; I felt goose bumps, and, finally, tears streamed down my face. I was in the midst of the uncanny, the inexplicable. My sons ride to kindergarten ...
What is it about schizophrenia that lends itself to creativity? One important aspect of the condition is what is diagnostically known as loosening of association. Words and concepts can combine in the speech and writing of schizophrenics in ways of association that are highly unusual. In refractory schizophrenics, these associations lead to word-salad type expressions that run counter to meaning. In some schizophrenics however, this unusual and loosened conceptual play can lead to quite successful creative outcomes. Writing, especially in mediums such as poetry, associations of words and concepts has to be loosened via an imaginary obfuscation which gives a pleasant unusualness. With the right vocabulary, this unusualness can lead to expression of beauty which are at the heart of poetry. Schizophrenics are in a perfect position to capitalise on this linguistic gymnastics, due to the above mentioned symptom - loosening of association ...

From a Body-Mind Centering® premise, we engage in experiential anatomy, movement explorations and focused awareness in this workshop. We will reflect on the embryological development of the kidneys and the reproductive organs and their symbolic connection to our creative power and our resources. These urogenital organs have origins that are physically linked together and grow from a common source of stem cells. In addition, both female and male embryos appear to be the same gender until most of the body systems are established. Through transformative reorganization and progressions, we evolve to become who we are today. Remembering this lived process of development enhances ones ability to recognize ones own Divine Nature and that of others and to embrace our individual creativity and resourcefulness. ...

Niche perfumeries rely quite a bit on an image of higher creativity than design labels. It is, it seems, this constraint which pushes them to prove their creative spirit. But perfumers cannot play the game of fashion collections and their designers although they might be tempted to do so when they see Galliano, Marc Jacobs, Ghesquière, Lagerfeld etc. who create like they were all 20 years old and taking amphetamines. And indeed, there is creativity in Gardénia Grand Soir, especially in the departure point which must have been the initial inspiration for the scent and is reflected in the name of the composition. But a perfume is not just about creativity. The medium which carries the idea must be good, at several levels. A perfumer could only with much difficulty convince with his or her art using cheap canvases like Picasso did. Flimsy canvases still support the visual representation, maybe not as durably (This is one of the Picasso legacy issues, the fact that his paintings are materially ...

Abstract: An overview of the history of debates on the correlation of musical skills with neurological functions in health and disease is presented. Selected biographical sketches of composers (Hildegard von Bingen, Mozart, Donizetti, Mussorgsky, and Ravel), whose neurological disease may have influenced musical creativity, are discussed. The search for information on the localization of skills in the brains of musicians is reviewed. The relation of mental ability to brain structure is a prominent theme in the history of neuroscience, and the effort to localize musical skills dates back to the excesses of phrenology in the early nineteenth century. The phrenological tables included an "organ of music" among the sites subserving intellectual capabilities, mapped on the basis of palpation of the head bumps. Since the second half of the nineteenth century, when the study of brain physiology, anatomy, and pathology had a remarkable development and impact on the neurosciences, structural features of ...

A New York Times Book Review Editors Choice "This luminous and assured first novel shines an unflinching, compassionate light on three generations of a black family in New Orleans, emphasizing endurance more than damage." --The New York Times Book Review, Editors Choice Evelyn is a Creole woman who comes of age in New Orleans at the height of World War II. Her family inhabits the upper echelon of Black society, and when she falls for no-account Renard, she is forced to choose between her life of privilege and the man she loves. In 1982, Evelyns daughter, Jackie, is a frazzled single mother grappling with her absent husbands drug addiction. Just as she comes to terms with his abandoning the family, he returns, ready to resume their old life. Jackies son, T.C., loves the creative process of growing marijuana more than the weed itself. He was a square before Hurricane Katrina, but the New Orleans he knew didnt survive the storm. Fresh out of a four-month stint for drug charges, T.C. decides ...
