About this Research Topic
Additionally, the association between creative thinking and other EFs is yet to be clarified. Lastly, the influence of psychological stress and mental disorders, the ways to restore and enhance creativity, and their effects on goal-directed behavior remain largely unclear.
Thus, we would be able to map the goal-directed behavior as one of the creative drivers, clarify the associated changes in such behavior with changes in creativity in neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental conditions, and shed light on psychological, behavioral, and pharmacological interventions.
The following subtopics are particularly welcome:
• The association between goal-directed behavior, creative thinking, and EFs in normal and pathological conditions (neuropsychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders)
• Protocols of existing creative tests, including detailed descriptions and troubleshooting
• Creativity evaluation using computerized or online tasks and games
• Creative robots and agents
• Neuroimaging and brain stimulation studies, especially those with subjects of diverse backgrounds
• The effectiveness and efficacy of psychological, behavioral, pharmacological, nutritional, or neuromodulatory interventions on goal-directed behavior and creative thinking
Article types include but are not limited to original research, brief research reports, clinical trials, reviews, meta-analyses, hypotheses, and theory articles.
Keywords: goal-directed behavior, creativity, neuroscience, psychiatry, psychological perspective
