Meeting History
In all fields of research, sharing of data at conferences is a cornerstone of advancement of the science. However for research on the neuroscience of creativity, the sharing of this work has been widely diffused across disparate meetings and sub-disciplines. As a result, it is not uncommon for research presented at one venue to be described as ‘an entirely new direction,' when this ‘new direction’ has been described by another research team several years earlier at another venue. It is also difficult to grow consensus on issues such as terminology, best practices, and scientific priorities. A dedicated society (and annual conference), providing a unified venue for discourse across disciplines, is needed to foster important discussions about how to grow the neuroscience of creativity.

For this reason, Dr. David Beversdorf organized an initial meeting to found the Society for the Neuroscience of Creativity  on October 16, 2015 in Chicago and to form a steering committee composed of leading researchers in the field (Drs. Green, Jung, Beeman, Chrysikou, Christoff, and Kraemer).
