If we all have the potential to be creative, why is it so hard? In this fun and enlightening presentation, we will explore some science behind creativity. Where does it come from? Are humans born with it or do they learn it? Is it possible to make yourself more creative?
The answers that are the results of research done by cognitive psychologists will surprise you, frustrate you, and excite you.
