ciao a tuttiiiii
ragazzi io sto facendo la tesi su questo argomento e devo ammettere di essermi imbattuta in un terreno davvero instabile..
Sapete dove posso trovare materiale? In particolare mi riferisco alle terapie/tecniche immaginative:
- A strutturazione totale (ipnoterapia, visualizzazioni guidate, ipnosi fantasmatica, imagoterapia, tecniche immaginative nella terapia cognitiva
- Autogene (training autogeno, abreazione autogena, immagogica autogena, ecc.)
- Integrate (Terapia Psicoimmaginativa, tecniche immaginative in Psicosintesi,
tecniche immaginative agite la gestalt therapy, l'art therapy, a sandplay therapy)
Riferimento: Terapie Immaginative..
Ehi, Carlasparla, ti trovo anche qui!
Ti segnalo un libro di MAgi Editore che si intitola proprio Terapie Immaginative, se non erro..
Il libro l'ho pestato ad un collega, non ricordo il nome dell'autore ma è straniero, per quanto lui sia italiano, però sicuramente nel catalogo della Magi lo trovi...
Riferimento: Terapie Immaginative..
sisi sono ovunque eheh
ah colgo l'occasione per ringraziarti per il materiale sei stato davvero gentilissimo. Non manchero di citarti anzi, sarei felice di mandarti una copia del mio lavoro.. che ne dici?
Parli di Claudio Widmann? Si, il suo libro l'ho letto è molto interessante.
Oltre che esaminare la prassi terapeutica però vorrei analizzare queste terapie dal punto di vista neuroanatomico/funzionale. In breve quello che vorrei approfondire è il legame, se c'è, tra immaginazione e plasticità cerebrale.
Premetto, che sto "sgomitando" tra un concetto ed un altro visto che le mie conoscenze in merito sono molto esigue. Essì.. pur essendo laureanda, in nessun corso della mia facoltà ho mai sentito parlare di quella che sarà la moderna rivoluzione della neuroanatomia (mirror e plasticità) nè tantomeno delle sue implicazioni terapeutiche.. Vabè lasciamo stare, sono felice di approfondire da sola
ovviamente però perdonami eventuali domande fuori luogo
A proposito eccone una (giuro che è l'ultima):
Ho letto dello scoperta di Irving Biederman della Southern California University, circa la gratificazione del cervello (tramite sostanze simili agli oppiacei) a seguito dell'aquisizione di informazioni inedite. Vorrei chiederti se, secondo te, ad essere coinvolti in questo discorso è soltanto il processo di acqusizione dell'informazione (apprendimento) o anche il processo (pensiero) creativo, secondo il quale le informazioni vengono invece prodotte. Penso di essermi spiegata molto male ma spero tu abbia capito. Ti allego l'articolo di Irving Biederman, magari se hai tempo ci dai un'occhiata.
cari saluti rehypnos

Piecing together the neuroscience of creativity: Review of Creativity and the brain. Kaufman, Allison B.; Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, Vol 1(4), Nov 2007. pp. 250-251. [Review-Book] Abstract: Reviews the book, Creativity and the brain by Kenneth M. Heilman (see record 2005-05841-000). This book is a well-written introduction to the neurobiology of creativity and related cognitive constructs. Although it may not be the best source for neuroscience professionals or those looking for specific information about the neural mechanics of creativity, it is definitely a worthy read for an interested layperson. Heilman walks the reader through a variety of issues related to creativity: intelligence, handedness, gender, neurological disorders, and several others. He is an excellent writer--good at explaining complex ideas such as brain physiology--and his diagrams and language are accessible and "user friendly." Most chapters begin with a basic overview of the neuroscience relevant to the chapter's specific topic. This organization is especially helpful to those unfamiliar with the basics. The thematic chapters, however, present a problem. Chapters such as Intelligence, Knowledge and Talents, Imagery, Gender, Aging, and Nurture are all appropriate topics for a book on creativity; however, the structure feels distracting, as if Heilman is skirting the issue of creativity and the neurobiology specific to it. Instead of delving into direct questions on structures or neurotransmitters in the brain, Heilman focuses on the neuroscience of constructs related to creativity. This book is a worthwhile exploration of the neurological mechanisms of cognitive constructs which are related to creativity--areas such as intelligence, aging, and disability. For an educated layperson looking for a clear, well-written, synopsis of these ideas, the reviewer recommends the book. However, as an academic book published by an academic press, it is neither current enough nor detailed enough to be of any special interest to a creativity or neuroscience researcher.

Decision making and free will: a neuroscience perspective. By: Burns, Kelly; Bechara, Antoine. Behavioral Sciences & the Law, Mar2007, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p263-280, 18p Abstract: A thorough analysis of the question of whether we possess “free will” requires that we take into account the process of exercising that will: that is, the neural mechanisms of decision making. Much of what we know about these mechanisms indicates that decision making is greatly influenced by implicit processes that may not even reach consciousness. Moreover, there exist conditions, for example certain types of brain injury or drug addiction, in which an individual can be said to have a disorder of the will. Examples such as these demonstrate that the idea of freedom of will on which our legal system is based is not supported by the neuroscience of decision making. Using the criminal law as an example, we discuss how new discoveries in neuroscience can serve as a tool for reprioritizing our society's legal intuitions in a way that leads us to a more effective and humane system.

Can a Neural System Geared to Bring About Rapid, Predictive, and Efficient Function Explain Creativity? By: Abraham, Anna. Creativity Research Journal, 2007, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p19-24, 6p Abstract: ABSTRACT: Vandervert, Schimpf, and Liu (this issue) have presented a cerebellar model of creativity in the featured article by relating their ideas to processes of working memory in relation to the cerebellum as well as by generalizing the motor control role of the cerebellum to extend to non-motor facets of cognition. In the present article, I discuss the weaknesses of their approach at different levels, ranging from the inadequate definition of the construct under study and the lack of specificity in their claims, to the counterintuitive underlying rationale of their approach, and the inadequate evidence provided to cement their ideas. I end by briefly outlining what would be necessary to propound an account of creativity that is uniquely attributable to cerebellum function.

On "How Working Memory and the Cerebellum Collaborate to Produce Creativity and Innovation" by L. R. Vandervert, P. H. Schimpf, and H. Liu. By: Ito, Masao. Creativity Research Journal, 2007, Vol. 19 Issue 1, p35-38, 4p; Abstract: The article reflects the opinion of the author on the study conducted in relation to the collaboration of working memory and cerebellum to develop creativity in a human brain. The author noted that the hypothesis proposed in the article suggests possibilities for conceptual development and offers opportunity for experimenters to take up the challenge to identify the neural counterpart of creative, innovative thought and to rectify the neural mechanism hidden at the highest human brain function.

Review of The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius. Bristol, Adam S.; Viskontas, Indre V.; Psychology of Aesthetics, Creativity, and the Arts, Vol S(1), Aug 2006. pp. 51-52. [Review-Book] Abstract: Reviews the book, The Creating Brain: The Neuroscience of Genius by Nancy C. Andreasen (see record 2006-01595-000). How does the brain accomplish creativity? How can we understand the creative process, if there is only one, and how might we improve our ability to be creative? Is it possible to look into the brain and find signatures of creative thinking in the same way that modern cognitive neuroscientists have uncovered some of the neural underpinnings of memory, emotion, and attention? Or is creativity outside the realm of scientific understanding, inspired by complex, deeply personal, or, perhaps, divine forces that cannot be cast into universal Laws of Creativity? These are some of the questions addressed in Nancy Andreasen's provocative new book, The Creating Brain. This book explores the nature of creativity, character traits of highly creative people, and considers how the brain achieves creative thinking. The Creating Brain often reads like a memoir, as Andreasen works hard to remove the screen of academic jargon, instruct the reader in an informal and engaging manner, and interject her own personal experiences and reflections into the discussion. There is more about the "mind" than the "brain" in The Creating Brain. Personality traits of creative people, cognitive styles, and cognitive processes in creativity may be reflections of the brain's workings, but alone they provide little insight into how the brain achieves magnificent feats of creativity. Although we recommend The Creating Brain as an enjoyable read, we cannot recommend it as an up-to-date account of neurobiological approaches to understanding creativity.

Using Kohonen Neural Network and Principle Component Analysis to Characterize Divergent Thinking. By: Woei-Yun Ho. Creativity Research Journal, 2004, Vol. 16 Issue 2/3, p283-292, 10p, 5 charts, 3 graphs Abstract: In order to characterize divergent thinking, the author performed self-organization feature mapping on the multidimensional data of Williams's (1980) Creative Thinking Tests. The resultant population map of cluster was obtained. Principal-components analysis was also applied to determine the most significant features characterizing divergent thinking. Using the two most significant features to define a 2-dimensional space, the author ascertained characterizations of each cluster over the population map. The results obtained compared favorably with the topological structure of the population map. A secondary differentiation was found in the divergent thinking test. The topological structure for divergent thinking should prove useful for characterization of creative thinking. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] (AN 14487550)
Functional plasticity in cognitive aging: Review and hypothesis. Greenwood, P. M.; Neuropsychology, Vol 21(6), Nov 2007. pp. 657-673. [Journal Article] Abstract: Cognitive aging reflects not only loss but also adaptation to loss. The adult brain is capable of plastic change, including change in cortical representation. This has been seen in association not only with frank lesions but also in healthy individuals as a function of experience and training. This review considers the potential for adult plasticity together with evidence of a relation in old age between regional cortical atrophy/shrinkage and increased activation in neuroimaging. Those cortical regions shown most consistently to shrink in adulthood--prefrontal and parietal cortices--are the same regions showing increased regional activation in aging. Combining several strands of behavioral and neuroimaging evidence, the author argues that functional plasticity alters the course of cognitive aging. The author advances the hypothesis that losses in regional brain integrity drive functional reorganization through changes in processing strategy and makes specific predictions from that hypothesis.
