How does the mind generate creative modes of thought?  How do scientists study creative processes?  This course will introduce students to scientific research on creativity, and, more generally, to the use of the scientific method in the field of psychology.  We will read and discuss a number of original research articles, covering topics such as the brain areas involved in creativity and how sharing ideas within a group influences creativity.  Together in small groups, students will also conduct and write about their own experiments on creativity.
