BDC develops projects that examine the relationship between novel body movements and creativity. We are creating a system based on recent experimental evidence from cognitive science and neuroscience, showing that a common coding in the brain connects execution, perception and imagination of movements. The common coding idea suggests that executing novel movements improves imagination of novel movements. And this, in turn, improves creativity in scientific and artistic disciplines that emphasize movement. Supported by the National Science Foundation, grant #0757370.
