This is your brain on art

You know that feeling when you’re really charged up about your latest creation? No?! Creativity has two main stages — with vastly different types of brain waves . . . “inspiration” and “elaboration.” This article explains the background and the benefit of being really turned on by your work, then suggests ways to get there.
