Oct. 9: Can Creativity be Trained?

DTU Compute has a specially invited guest lecturer Indre Viskontas - a neuroscientist and musician from San Francisco - who will present her exciting research on the principles of creativity.

Creativity comes in many forms and its neural basis is a reflection, of course, of this variability. There are a few general principles, however, which will be outlined in this talk by neuroscientist and musician Indre Viskontas, along with an overview of the state-of-the-art of research on the topic and suggestions for future directions. A special emphasis will be placed on the training of creativity in music performance, including observations and insights gained while teaching musicians at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music.

Indre Viskontas is an Adjunct Professor from University of California, San Francisco and faculty member San Francisco Conservatory of Music.
