Food, Drinks and Live Music in Brick Lane
In this talk on creativity, Professor Vincent Walsh will discuss how humans create and become creative. Is it a gift or can it be trained? What is happening in the brain during a creative moment? Are there limits of creativity? Recent advances have revealed how different brain networks co-operate to enhance creativity and Vincent will show how this can be used in our own creative lives.
Vincent will also discuss his recent work on polymaths, people who are creative in many areas. He is a strong believer that our innate creativity and curiosity is repressed by an education system that focuses on passing exams instead of deep learning. In this lecture you will learn how to understand your own and others’ creative processes, so you can become more creative!
Professor Vincent Walsh leads the Applied Cognitive Neuroscience group at UCL. His goal is to use neuroscience to improve high performance in sport, high pressure decision making and advancing human brain stimulation in cognition and health. His research has been used by elite performers, including Great Britain’s Rio olympic team.
