To Think without Thinking: The Implications of Combinatory Play and the Creative Process for Neuroaesthetics
Stevens, Victoria
American Journal of Play, v7 n1 p99-119 Fall 2014
The author considers combinatory play as an intersection between creativity, play, and neuroaesthetics. She discusses combinatory play as vital to the creative process in art and science, particularly with regard to the incubation of new ideas. She reviews findings from current neurobiological research and outlines the way that the brain activates various regions when creative, combinatory play uses conscious and unconscious cognitive and emotional processes.
