Abstract
Experimental studies have demonstrated a right hemisphere advantage for creativity. The present research examined the relationship between individual differences in hemispheric activation (measured with a line bisection task) and the Remote Associates Test (RAT). Scores on the RAT were positively correlated with hemispheric activation regardless of participants’ mood.
