How Creativity Works
Tuesday, science writer Jonah Lehrer is with us for a look at what the latest research can teach us about our imaginations. Creativity isn't the special purview of artists and inventors; it's an impulse that's hard-wired into our brain and we can all learn to use it more effectively. We'll talk about how techniques like daydreaming, perseverance and channeling the inner seven-year-old can help us re-imagine the world.
