The Cambridge Handbook of the Neuroscience of Creativity Book Excerpt:

Historically, the brain bases of creativity have been of great interest to scholars and the public alike. However, recent technological innovations in the neurosciences, coupled with theoretical and methodological advances in creativity assessment, have enabled humans to gain unprecedented insights into the contributions of the brain to creative thought. This unique volume brings together contributions by the very best scholars to offer a comprehensive overview of cutting edge research on this important and fascinating topic. The chapters discuss creativity's relationship with intelligence, motivation, psychopathology and pharmacology, as well as the contributions of general psychological processes to creativity, such as attention, memory, imagination, and language. This book also includes specific and novel approaches to understanding creativity involving musicians, polymaths, animal models, and psychedelic experiences. The chapters are meant to give the reader a solid grasp of the diversity of approaches currently at play in this active and rapidly growing field of inquiry.

The Cambridge Handbook of the Imagination Book Excerpt:

The human imagination manifests in countless different forms. We imagine the possible and the impossible. How do we do this so effortlessly? Why did the capacity for imagination evolve and manifest with undeniably manifold complexity uniquely in human beings? This handbook reflects on such questions by collecting perspectives on imagination from leading experts. It showcases a rich and detailed analysis on how the imagination is understood across several disciplines of study, including anthropology, archaeology, medicine, neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, and the arts. An integrated theoretical-empirical-applied picture of the field is presented, which stands to inform researchers, students, and practitioners about the issues of relevance across the board when considering the imagination. With each chapter, the nature of human imagination is examined - what it entails, how it evolved, and why it singularly defines us as a species.

Cognitive Sciences and Medieval Studies Book Excerpt:

With the rapid development of the cognitive sciences and their importance to how we contemplate questions about the mind and society, recent research in the humanities has been characterised by a ‘cognitive turn’. For their part, the humanities play an important role in forming popular ideas of the human mind and in analysing the way cognitive, psychological and emotional phenomena are experienced in time and space. This collection aims to inspire medievalists and other scholars within the humanities to engage with the tools and investigative methodologies deriving from cognitive sciences. Contributors explore topics including medieval and modern philosophy of mind, the psychology of religion, the history of psychological medicine and the re-emergence of the body in cognition. What is the value of mapping how neurons fire when engaging with literature and art? How can we understand psychological stress as a historically specific phenomenon? What can medieval mystics teach us about contemplation and cognition?

Philosophy and Psychedelics Book Excerpt:

What do psychedelics reveal about consciousness? What impact have psychedelics had on philosophy? In this rapidly growing area of study, this is the first volume to explore the philosophy of psychedelic experience, from a range of interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives. In doing so, Philosophy and Psychedelics reveals just why the place of psychedelics in our societies should not be left to medical sciences alone, as psychedelic experience opens up new perspectives on fundamental philosophical questions relating to human experience, ethics, and the metaphysics of mind. Mapping a range of philosophical responses to the surge in studies into psychedelic drugs in the cognitive sciences, this go-to volume examines topics including psychedelics and the role of governance; psychedelics and mysticism; what psychedelics can tell us about dyadic thankfulness; and psychedelics as ways to gain new knowledge. Written by leading international scholars, the essays cover Western and non-Western traditions, from analytic philosophy to Zen Buddhism, and discuss a variety of hallucinogens, such as LSD, MDMA, and Ayahuasca, in order to build a much-needed bridge between the rapidly growing scientific research and the philosophy behind psychedelic experience.

Creativity in Word Formation and Word Interpretation Book Excerpt:

There are many ways in which we, as speakers, are creative in how we form and interpret new words. Working across the interfaces of psychology, linguistics, psycholinguistics, and sociolinguistics, this book presents cutting-edge interdisciplinary research, showing how we manipulate the range of linguistic tools at our disposal to create an infinite range of words and meanings. It provides both a theoretical account of creativity in word-formation and word-interpretation, and an experimental framework with the corresponding results obtained from more than seven hundred participants. Data drawn from this vast range of speakers shows how creativity varies across gender and age, and demonstrates the complexity of relationships between the examined variables. Pioneering in its scope, this volume will pave the way for a brand new area of research in the formation and interpretation of complex words.

The Creative Writer s Mind Book Excerpt:

What goes on in creative writers’ heads when they write? What can cognitive psychology, neuroscience, literary studies and previous research in creative writing studies tell creative writers about the processes of their writing mind? Creative writers have for centuries undertaken cognitive research. Some described cognition in vivid exegetical essays, but most investigated the mind in creative writing itself, in descriptions of the thinking of characters in fiction, poetry and plays. The inner voicings and inner visualising revealed in Greek choruses, in soliloquies, in stream-of-consciousness narratives are creative writers’ ‘research results’ from studying their own cognition, and the thinking of others. The Creative Writer’s Mind is a book for creative writers: it sets out to cross the gap between creative writing and science, between the creative arts and cognitive research.

Nutrition and Integrative Medicine for Clinicians Book Excerpt:

Mystery illness can be helped, and this book lays the groundwork for it! Can a water-damaged building ruin your health and cause debilitating exhaustion, chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, obesity and "brain fog?" Could a flood or wet basement make you sick even if it has long dried out? Building on its predecessor, Nutrition and Integrative Medicine for Clinicians: Volume Two is an essential, peer-reviewed resource for practitioners to help patients with various illnesses found in society, including those contracted from water-damaged structures, that can lay the groundwork for a healthy road to recovery. Written by authors at the forefront of their respective fields, this book presents information for people "written off" as having a "mystery illness," fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue. Chronic inflammatory response syndrome (CIRS) is ubiquitous and affects many body systems, yet it is largely unrecognized by doctors, who misdiagnose CIRS patients daily. This book is a comprehensive guide on evaluating illnesses that are difficult to diagnose, including CIRS. This volume contains information on various subjects, including: Illnesses resulting from water-damaged buildings and subsequent change in the microbiome of the building. Steps to heal from mold/mycotoxin illnesses. Legal and ethical considerations in health issues from exposure to a water-damaged building as well as introducing the "building science" to clinicians. Effects of CIRS on metabolism and insulin resistance. Environmental hormone disruptors. Myalgic encephalitis/chronic fatigue syndrome. Regenerative agriculture. Pediatric sleep-related breathing disorders and their effects on growth and development. Circadian effects of artificial light and their effects on mitochondria. Nutritional support in Covid. The design nature of sound and its relationship to neural networks. The human body as a biological sound healing instrument. The use of color in clinical application. Art in medicine. Living life with intentionality and mindfulness. Making childbirth a positive experience.
