Gray matter correlates of creative potential: a latent variable voxel-based morphometry study.

Jauk E, Neubauer AC, Dunst B, Fink A, Benedek M - Neuroimage (2015)

Bottom Line: The results confirmed and extended previous research: rGMV in the precuneus was associated with ideational originality, but not with ideational fluency.In addition, we found ideational originality to be correlated with rGMV in the caudate nucleus.The results indicate that the ability to produce original ideas is tied to default-mode as well as dopaminergic structures.

f0010: Regions of positive correlation between rGMV and ideational fluency in lower intelligent individuals.

Mentions: In lower intelligent individuals, no significant (cluster size k > 542) positive or negative effects were observed for ideational originality. For ideational fluency, we observed a significant positive effect in the bilateral cuneus/lingual gyrus (x, y, z = − 21.0, − 57.0, − 4.5; t = 4.88; k = 1496; Fig. 2). Like in the full sample, intelligence was positively associated with rGMV in the right calcarine sulcus (x, y, z = 21.0, − 58.5, 3.0; t = 4.33; k = 1367) and also negatively associated to rGMV in a cluster extending from the brainstem to the left thalamus (x, y, z = 0.0, − 18.0, 19.5; t =  4.08; k = 738). Openness, in contrast, was negatively correlated with a cluster in the right middle temporal lobe (x, y, z = 45.0, − 48.0, 1.5; t =  4.73; k = 827).
