<< "I had always intuitively understood that the creative process in jazz improvisation is very different than the process of memorization," he (Charles Limb) explained. "That is immediately apparent when you play" >>
<< While the musicians improvised, the parts of the brain that allow humans to express ourselves - the medial prefrontal cortex or "default network" - became more active. At the same time, the part of the brain responsible for self-inhibition and control, the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, became dormant. >>
<< By inhibiting the part of the brain that allows self-criticism, the musicians were able to stay in their creative flow, known as "in the zone." >>
