Few features of humanity are more fascinating than creativity; and few fields are more dynamic now than neuroscience. Rex Jung is a neuropsychologist who puts the two together. He's working on a cutting edge of science, exploring the differences and interplay between intelligence and creativity. He and his colleagues unsettle long-held beliefs about who is creative and who is not. And they're seeing practical, often common-sense connections between creativity and family life, aging, and purpose.

With new techniques of brain imaging, neuroscientist Rex Jung and his colleagues are gaining a whole new view of the differences and the interactions between intelligence, creativity, and personality:
"With intelligence, there's the analogy I've used is there's this superhighway in the brain that allows you to get from point A to point B. With creativity, it's a slower, more meandering process where you want to take the side roads and even the dirt roads to get there."
How do we prime our brains to take the meandering mental paths necessary for creativity? Rex Jung unsettles some old assumptions, and suggests some new connections between creativity and family life, creativity and aging, creativity and purpose.
