Measuring and Enhancing Creativity and Brain Flexibility in Adolescents with Depression

July 7, 2021

An interdisciplinary team led by Kathryn Cullen, MD, has received a 2021 Minnesota Futures Award for their study on whether deep engagement in creative activities may benefit adolescents with depression by introducing a more flexible way of thinking, helping them to recognize and foster their own creative talents and ultimately develop more positive views of themselves and their futures. The project will provide the basis for a transformative research program to address a serious societal problem using novel intervention and measurement methodologies. Meanwhile, the project will advance understanding of the mechanisms underlying depression, recovery, and creativity development in adolescents. Learn more about this study.
