Mobile Brain/Body Imaging and the Neuroscience of Art, Innovation and Creativity

Recent developments overcoming technical restrictions of traditional brain imaging approaches now allow for brain imaging of actively behaving participants in real and virtual environments. This is a significant step in advancing our knowledge of the neural basis of human action, cognition and emotions as rooted in our bodies and adapting to a dynamically changing environment. Investigating brain dynamics during active behavior on different temporal and spatial scales allows to explore hitherto unknown interactions of the human body and the mind during natural cognitive tasks and allows for extending neuroscientific research to the fields of art, innovation, and creativity.Complex settings such as museums and art venues attract tens of thousands of people with rich demographics thereby (a) providing a unique opportunity to study the population distribution, variability and individuality of neural…
