It is often said that creativity comes from the right half of your brain, and analytical and logical thinking comes from the left half.
Scientists on the other hand say that being creative is a complicated task in which both halves of the brain have to run at full speed.
And now it seems no one was right. A new study followed the brains of jazz musicians who were improvising.
And what did they learn? Among the musicians did not have much experience yet with improvisation, the right half was mainly active. And with the experienced musicians it turned out that the left hemisphere did the most work.
Being creative is something for your whole brain.
