Neuroscientist and psychologist, Anna Abraham, is a world expert on creativity, imagination and the brain.
Anna Abraham is the E. Paul Torrance Professor and Director of the Torrance Center for Creativity and Talent Development at the University of Georgia. She currently leads the Creativity & Imagination Lab at UGA.
Anna studies the psychological and neurophysiological basis of creativity and other aspects of the human imagination including the reality-fiction distinction, mental time travel, self-referential and social cognition, and mental state reasoning. Her educational and professional training has been within the disciplines of Psychology and Neuroscience but she works in a cross-disciplinary way to understand creativity, imagination and the human mind.
I have been smitten by the world of creativity - whether through film, books, music or sports - ever since I can remember. The opportunity to study the creativity and the imagination was a serendipitous gift. And the lens of sheer possibility is one through which I process virtually everything in the world.
