Toward a neurocognitive framework of creative cognition: the role of memory, attention, and cognitive control

«Memory plays an intriguing role in creative thought. On the one hand, producing something creative, by defini- tion, requires going beyond memory, as mere recall would not be considered creative. On the other hand, new ideas do not come ex nihilo, but are thought to arise from meaningful variations and recombination of available knowledge [23,24], and combinations of more unrelated concepts hold the promise of particularly creative ideas [25]. Elements of knowledge hence represent the build- ing blocks of creative thought. Yet, for the sake of efficiency in everyday contexts, our brain is tuned to keep common associations more accessible [26], making it harder to think in original ways.»
