In many standard models of the conscious and unconscious minds, or left brain-right brain, creativity is the province of the unconscious-right brain. As this article shows, things are not quite that simple and a solid understanding of neuroscience is required to understand creativity on a deeper level. According to this research by Harvard University’s Randy Buckner creativity is a function of loosening the Executive Attention Network to allow free flow of ideas, while utilizing the Imagination Network which allows the brain to ‘model’ ideas, and the ‘Salience Network’ which allows attention to switch between internal and external stimuli as needed by the task.
