Brain activity and connectivity during poetry composition: Toward a multidimensional model of the creative process.

Liu S, Erkkinen MG, Healey ML, Xu Y, Swett KE, Chow HM, Braun AR - Hum Brain Mapp (2015)

Bottom Line: Distinct activation patterns were associated with generation and revision, two major phases of the creative process.Experts showed significantly stronger deactivation of DLPFC/IPS during generation, suggesting that they may more effectively suspend cognitive control.Quality of poetry, assessed by an independent panel, was associated with divergent connectivity patterns in experts and novices, centered upon MPFC (for technical facility) and DLPFC/IPS (for innovation), suggesting a mechanism by which experts produce higher quality poetry.

Conjunction of brain activity associated with generation of new poems in experts and novices.Conjunction of statistical t maps of (GenNewPoem‐RecMemPoem) between experts and novices on axial slices: (A) activations (B) deactivations. Colors indicate activations/deactivations unique to experts, novices, or shared by both (FWE < 0.05).

hbm22849-fig-0004: Conjunction of brain activity associated with generation of new poems in experts and novices.Conjunction of statistical t maps of (GenNewPoem‐RecMemPoem) between experts and novices on axial slices: (A) activations (B) deactivations. Colors indicate activations/deactivations unique to experts, novices, or shared by both (FWE < 0.05).

Mentions: In addition to the MPFC and DLPFC/IPS, other brain regions including visual, somatosensory, auditory, motor related areas fell separately into the other clusters (cluster 1, 3 and 5 in Fig. 3B). The spatial distributions of all five clusters can be found in Supporting Information Figure 4.
