Our search has the following Google-type functionality:
If you use '+' at the start of a word, that word will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry +Potter
Search results will contain 'Potter'.
If you use '-' at the start of a word, that word will be absent in the search results.
eg. Harry -Potter
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between 2 words, then both those words will be present in the search results.
eg. Harry AND Potter
Search results will contain both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
NOTE: AND will only work with single words not phrases.
If you use 'OR' between 2 single words, then either or both of those words will be present in the search results.
eg. 'Harry OR Potter'
Search results will contain just 'Harry', or just 'Potter', or both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
NOTE: OR will only work with single words not phrases.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, that word will be absent in the search results. (This is the same as using the minus symbol).
eg. 'Harry NOT Potter'
Search results will not contain 'Potter'.
NOTE: NOT will only work with single words not phrases.
If you use double quotation marks around words, those words will be present in that order.
eg. "Harry Potter"
Search results will contain 'Harry Potter', but not 'Potter Harry'.
NOTE: "" cannot be combined with AND, OR & NOT searches.
If you use '*' in a word, it performs a wildcard search, as it signifies any number of characters. (Searches cannot start with a wildcard).
Search results will contain words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er', such as 'Potter'.
Elkhonon Goldberg, PhD, ABPP, is a scientist, clinician, and educator. He is Director of Luria Neuroscience Institute and Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine. Goldberg is internationally renowned for his research in cognitive neuroscience and clinical neuropsychology. He has authored several widely acclaimed books which have been translated into many languages. He lectures worldwide. Goldberg is also a clinician with an active practice in neuropsychology.
Elkhonon Goldberg, PhD, a leading-edge neuropsychologist and broad-ranging thinker, has provided a brilliant, synthetic account of human creativity. A sophisticated understanding of brain function is combined with insights from contemporary psychology, evolutionary biology, and cross-cultural studies to elucidate the key processes underlying innovation in the arts, sciences and all areas of human endeavor. * David Silbersweig, MD, Co-Director, Neuroscience Center and Professor of Psychiatry, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA * Elkhonon Goldberg's new book, Creativity: The Human Brain in the Age of Innovation is a very insightful study of our brains in a time of accelerating and multi-dimensional change. It is the fruit of both scholarly research and many decades of experience. Creativity is a wonderful addition to Dr. Goldberg's body of work. * Bienvenido F. Nebres, Professor of Mathematics, Past-President of Ateneo de Manila University, Manila, Philippines * What an inspired marriage of Creativity and Neuroscience (big C, big N), officiated by a brave scientist and original thinker. This book will spark new research, new toolkits, new conversations * and much creativity. * Dr. Goldberg has obviously travelled extensively and his observations and experiences seem like a beautifully written journey in themselves until he leads one to the point where he reveals even more involving aspects of creativity in other cultures and even species. As far as this book is concerned, Dr. Goldberg clearly knows what he's doing when it comes to Creativity. * John Fawcett, Creative Director, Balucate, Sydney, Australia * In Creativity, Elkhonon Goldberg is subtle, judicious, relentlessly curious, fun and brutally honest about what neuroscience knows, and doesn't know, about the subject. He guides us through decades of research, to show that perhaps the most striking thing about our plastic organ of creativity, is that, while there are certain basic patterns in the creative brain, they are only starting points; the brainas circuitry, being so plastic, likely has just as many different ways of helping to produce creative states, as there are human ways of being creative. No one interested in the neuroscience of creativity can afford to miss this book. * Norman Doidge, MD, author of 'The Brain That Changes Itself', and 'The Brain's Way of Healing', Toronto, Canada * Countless contributions have dealt with the psychological, socio-cultural, cognitive, evolutionary aspects of creativity. The neuroanatomical and physiological aspects have been explored to a limited extent: which is odd, as creativity is the product of brain's activity. Elkhonon Goldberg's book has the brain as its undisputed main character; this makes it uniquely important. The role of the brain's physiology and anatomy in the generation of creativity, with the frontal lobe and the prefrontal cortex in the privileged position, are discussed exhaustively and masterfully. Goldberg is a first rate neuroscientist and a born writer. * Ernesto Carafoli, MD, Venetian Institute of Molecular Medicine, University of Padova, Italy * Advance praise for Creativity
