In "Creativity and the Brain", Kenneth Heilman explores the possible brain mechanisms which underlie creativity, by reviewing the existing evidence and putting forward new ideas. On the way, he discusses the relationships between creativity and intelligence, brain anatomy, neuropharmacology, addiction, handedness, sex differences, and mood states such as depression. He also addresses the effects of neurological disorders and aging, as well as the influence of environmental factors such as tolerance and nurturing. The book will be of interest to neuroscientists, psychologists, psychiatrists, neurologists and educators. The engaging and succinct style of this book also makes it appealing to students, and researchers from a variety of disciplines who have an interest in understanding the brain mechanisms underlying creativity.

Review:

"Recommended to all college-level libraries for its long-term reference value in multiple disciplines -- including Psychology and Neurology. Further recommended to Psychology instructors as a primary text for all courses that examine how the mind develops the individual.
."
