Soc Neurosci. 2018 Apr 11;: Authors: Ivancovsky T, Kurman J, Morio H, Shamay-Tsoory S Abstract Although evidence points to the existence of cultural differences in creativity, the mechanisms that underlie these differences are largely unknown. The twofold model of creativity posits two recursive stages: a generation phase and an evaluation phase. Considering that recent studies suggest that the left inferior frontal gyrus) L-IFG(may inhibit creativity during the evaluation phase, we hypothesized that manipulating IFG activity would affect participants' level of creativity. We further ... read more
