Creativity May Not Be A "Static" Trait: Electrical Brain Stimulation Enhances Creativity

Electrical Brain Stimulation Enhances Creativity, Researchers Say

Georgetown University Medical Center | April 14, 2016

Safe levels of electrical stimulation can enhance your capacity to think more creatively, according to a new study by Georgetown researchers.
Georgetown psychology professor Adam Green and Dr. Peter Turkeltaub of Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) and MedStar National Rehabilitation Network, and a team of colleagues published the study yesterday online in Cerebral Cortex.
The team used Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) to stimulate an area of the brain known to be associated with creativity in combination with giving test subjects verbal cues to think more creatively.
