Eine Veranstaltung des Programmbereichs (Inter)Mediation (IE Wissenschaft & Kunst) in Kooperation mit dem Fachbereich Biowissenschaften der Universität Salzburg und der Paracelsus Medizinischen Privatuniversität Salzburg
The lecture discusses some emerging preliminary results from a collaboration network of Neurologists, Psychologists, and Neuroscientists involving a compelling overlap between Parkinson’s disease (PD), its treatment, and a phenomenon whereby some individuals appear to show changes in their approach, or in their ability, with artistic or other creative pursuits (tentatively suggested to impact upwards of 20% of patients). Based on a review and synthesis of case evidence of PD-afflicted creators and artists, Matthew Pelowski suggests potential reasons for such changes—and thus perhaps for creativity itself—at the level of the brain, dopaminergic pathways, and pharmacology, as well as considering possible overlaps between creativity domains. This is coupled with the work to provide new, much needed additional evidence, via assessment of artworks by PD artists and a multi-country systematic epidemiological study of many hundreds of patients involving potential creative pursuits, which hopefully will provide new insights towards understanding and applying the PD-related artistic muse.

Matthew Pelowski is Asst. Prof. of Cognitive and Neuroaesthetics in the Faculty of Psychology, University of Vienna, dual affiliation with the Vienna Cognitive Sciences Hub, and head of the ARTIS Lab (Art Research on Transformation of Individuals and Society).
