A slow mind may nurture more creative ideas
I just came across this post 'A slow mind may nurture more creative ideas' from the new scientist and thought they've got something I couldn't just tweet. I needed a more permanent record. It's about new research investigating mental proceses and creativity. What's striking is the level of detail that can now be achieved with modern techniques. They can actually view individual neurons in some ones brain, measure its thickness and link to traits. This is much more convincing than studies of old that had to infer all these aspect.
