I have been conducting research to inform my work for Creative Reactions and I have come across some fascinating information. This is a recent article from BBC News regarding the way in which an artist's brain differs to others. As an additional, fun fact, when I was meeting with Dr Denize Atan she told us that taxi drivers have a larger hippocampi than others! They believe this is due to the visual and spatial information that they have to retain in order to navigate.
The brain is an incredible thing! (Click image to be taken to the BBC News article.)
