Scientists have studied Einstein’s brain
(which is right at this moment cut up
into about 240 pieces) and have
found some differences but...
Einstein himself did NOT credit his greatest scientific insights to his left-brain logic but rather to right-brain highly creative daydreaming.
When Einstein had a question or wanted to solve a problem, rather than setting up an experiment in a laboratory, he did what he called a THOUGHT EXPERIMENT.
Why talk about
your brain and art?
Art is good for your brain because it provides you with the opportunity to be creative, inventive, and imaginative - using the right side of your brain.
Without art and creativity
there is potentially 1/2 of
your brain that you
would not use!
So Art makes you smarter because ...
... to be able to think in
a whole new way!
... you are developing the right side of your brain...
Now put it to the test!
