Brain, Creativity and Pain
Functional MRIs have been used in a number of pain research projects in the recent past. I came across this video link reviewing some posts related to pain management. Dr.Charles Limb presents an interesting and entertaining look into his research on the brain as it applies to musical creativity. His work found that improvisation and creativity in musicians highlighted different functional areas in the brain. Fascinating work that contributes to more of our understanding of the brain; and equally - important > shows what is possible when you think outside of the box.
