TEDxABQ - Rex Jung - Creativity and the Brain

Rex Jung explains how creativity works in the brain.A leading scientist in the emerging field of positive neuroscience -- the study of what the brain does well. As an Assistant Professor at the UNM Health Sciences Center Department of Neurosurgery, his groundbreaking research led to the first model describing a network of brain regions critically linked together in service of intellectual pursuits. Over the last several years, he has turned his attention to the manifestation of creativity in the brain -- a cognitive capacity perhaps critically dependent upon, yet distinctly different from intelligence. The author of over 40 scientific publications, his research has been widely featured in popular media outlets including CNN,BBC, Psychology Today, New Scientist, The New York Times, and Newsweek. His work is based on patients diagnosed with brain disease and disorder and is enhanced by a research perspective grounded in both neurological disorder and "what the brain does well."

At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
