Science Breakfast

Begin of page section: Contents:

On the first Wednesday of every month (during the lecture term), BioTechMed-Graz organizes a Science Breakfast alternately at the University of Graz, Medical University of Graz, and Graz University of Technology.


Next Event:

The next BioTechMed-Graz Science Breakfast will take place on April 12, 2023.

Ass.-Prof. Dr. Matthias Benedek, Head of the Creative Cognition Lab at the Institute of Psychology at the University of Graz, will give a lecture on „Creativity – Myths and Facts“.

Creativity is a popular concept, but lay conceptions about its causes and conditions are often informed by anecdotal reports. This presentation examines some popular conceptions about creativity such as the relevance of the right brain, the role of spontaneous insight, higher creativity in children, or facilitative effects of alcohol in the context of available empirical evidence. The presented findings are further considered to derive implications for supporting creativity in scientific work.

 You can register here until April 10, 2023.
