A new study suggested that creative people have more connections between white matter of right and left brain hemispheres and an old myth of relating creativity with right hemisphere has been discarded. David Dunson of Duke University and Daniele Durante of the University of Padova have examined 68 separate brain regions in healthy volunteers.

Rex Jung, a neuroscientist of the University of New Mexico, with his team have collected the data using an Magnetic Resource Imaging (MRI) technique called diffusion tensor imaging. A combination of tests were used to assess creativity and responses were used to calculate a composite creativity score for each person.

Dunson and Durante recognize differences in brain structure through trained computers. No statistical differences has been identified in connectivity within hemispheres or between men and women. But when they compare creativity test results of people who scored top 15 percent with one who scored the bottom 15 percent , high scorers had significantly more connections between the right and left hemispheres.

Dunson and colleagues are now evolving statistical methods to find out whether brain connectivity varies with I.Q. whose relationship to creativity is a subject of ongoing debate. Paul Thompson at the University of Southern California in collaboration with neurology professor, are also using their methods for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease, to help discriminate it from normal aging.

اگر آپ سوچتے ہیں کوئی کمپنی خرد برد اور کرپشن سے پاک ہے تو یہ آپ کا وہم ہے- اگر آپ سمجھتے ہیں کہ فراڈ اور ہیرا پھیری کا کچھ نہیں کیا جا سکتا تو یہ آپ کا وسوسہ ہے” ، ڈاکٹر صداقت علی بتاتے ہیں دو سنہری روئیے جو کمپنیوں میں کرپشن، خرد برد اور ہیرا پھیری کا خاتمہ کر دیتے ہیں۔

Usually to analyze brain network statistical data focus on predicting functions of single brain that is which regions serve as highly connected hubs. But brain is wired differently in different people. Also, the methods for identifying resemblances and differences in connectivity across individuals and between groups have failed to keep pace.
