Psychobiology of Creativity, Emotions and Creative Attitude
Creativity as a psychological phenomenon implies molecular processes, in the strict sense of the term, as well as global processes that can contemplate social or cultural interaction. The study of creativity, from the neurosciences perspective, has yielded findings that range from the genetic to the neuroanatomical. However, such findings are likely to have incomplete, or even erroneous, understanding if mediation of other variables is not considered. The objective of this work is to link emotional processing and creative attitude with the psychobiological variables associated with creativity. To do this, a review of the literature is made in which some approaches to creativity from the neurosciences are highlighted. It was considered that they were meta-analytic or critical review works, as well as empirical studies, which in both cases were indexed in Web of Science and had at least two citations per year, except for studies of 2017. As a result of the analysis of genetic studies, neurotransmission and others at the level of neuroimaging and electroencephalography, possible links to findings of work on emotional processing are indicated. The creative attitude, in turn, guiding the creative performances, gives a more comprehensive sense to such linkage. Finally, the findings of neuroscience are discussed in terms of the need to provide more limited frameworks that allow better explanations.
