Science and creativity

"Make Art, Melt stress

Sculpting, painting, drawing, or creating a collage helped reduce levels of cortisol - a hormone that increases when you are under stress - in 75 percent of a group of 39 people in a  Drexel University study. Making art helped both newbies and veteran artsy-craftsy types alike. Volunteers who struggled at first (but ultimately liked their project) or who said the experience helped them learn something about themselves were more likely to see a drop in cortisol."   Source: Art Therapy, June 26, 2016

"Every great advance in science has issued from a new audacity of the imagination."  - John Dewey

"The mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skill. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science."   - Albert Einstein
