Are you a neuroscientist? Are you keen to investigate the correlation between ASSOCIATIVE THINKING EXPERIENCED BY RUNNERS / A RUNNER DURING THE RUNNER’S HIGH and ASSOCIATIVE THINKING AS EXPERIENCED BY THE/AN ASPERGERS’ MIND? Call RUN! RUN! RUN! now, to create this unique exploration in which art and neuroscience collide and create fireworks. 

OVERVIEW & AIMS

This is another new strand of research rough classified under Running (runner’s high) + Aspie + Creativity that RUN! RUN! RUN! aims to embark on for the year 2015. Nothing is pinned down or causal; everything is fluid, exploratory and speculative. 

It aims to explore the correlations between:

QUESTIONS

The research question or rather questions are yet to be formulated. RUN! RUN! RUN! is uncertain yet what we are looking for, what ‘answers’ we hope to find. However, we are curious to find out:

  • if these different strands are related
  • if so, how so
  • how this finding can enhance our understanding of ‘unusual’ or neuroatypical ways of thinking
  • how to use associative thinking to associate these different strands together
  • how this approach to thinking could be structured into steps or approaches that can be useful to enhance creative thinking
  • how this approach to or technique of thinking can be an interesting worldview or way of looking at the world that people who do not run or who do not have Asperger’s can also make use of.

CONTEXTS

At the meantime, the following are resources that RUN! RUN! RUN! is gathering:
