In this lecture on creativity, Professor Vincent Walsh will discuss how humans create and become creative. Is it a gift or can be trained? What is happening in the brain during creative moment? Are there limits of creativity?

Vincent will also discuss his recent work on polymaths (creativity in more than one area). He is a strong believer that our innate creativity and curiosity is repressed by an education system that focuses on passing exams instead of true learning. In this lecture you will learn how to restore your creative skills!

Vincent Walsh is Professor of Human Brain Research at University College London. His primary work has been on methods of using magnetic fields to stimulate the human brain using a technique called TMS, which is now established as a treatment for depression. For the past decade he has focussed on applying his knowledge to the real world and has taken special interests in elite performance (working with football clubs, international rugby and Team GB Rio squads, as well as businesses and the military), creativity (working with concert musicians, artists and business professionals), and sleep (working with sleepdeep, and focussing on sleep and learning, sleep and the menopause, and the role of sleep in learning and creativity).

Funzing Talks are here to re-invent your evenings, creating an exciting alternative to having a drink in your local pub or bar.
