Race to the Locus of Creativity: A Systematic Review

Liz Coulter-Smith

Research output: Contribution to JournalAbstractpeer-review


This talk summarises the findings of a systematic review carried out on current neuroimaging studies between 2009 and 2019, which have focussed on locating creativity in the brain. Many of the studies reviewed seek to build creative algorithms also known as creative machines (Colton et al., 2015) . This review concludes with a discussion of the paradoxical socioethical and economic implications arising from a selection of these studies.
