Artistic creativity may share genetic roots with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder, according to a study published on Monday.

The research, [...] delves into a well-known genetic database [...]

(Comparing) genetic and medical data from 86,000 Icelanders, establishing a DNA signature that pointed to a doubled risk for schizophrenia and an increase of a third for bipolar disorder.

(Then comparing) the genomes of people engaged in artistic work.

[...]samples came from more than 1,000 volunteers who were members of Iceland's national societies of visual arts, theatre, dance, writing and music.

Members of these organisations were 17 percent likelier than non-members to have the same genetic signature, the study found.

Creativity comes in many forms, what about scientists that create theories about how the cosmos was formed/works, or a scientific inventor (mad scientist?). I wonder if they too could be susceptible to the same mental illnesses associated with DNA and creativity?

Something that has always puzzled me is why they group Arts with the Sciences in my day. Today, they call is 'transdisciplinary'. Will we be using both sides of the brain? Can this aid with not delving too much into creative fantasy and stay more balanced? I find these interesting questions.

Quote:The arts and science are often thought of as polar opposites. Traditionally, students and universities view them as separate entities – you pick a degree in one or the other and stick to your side of the fence.
-----------------------------

Combining arts and science in the curriculum could be the answer. From science, students learn about sound methods for testing hypotheses, and about interpreting and drawing valid conclusions from data. From arts, they will also learn about developing arguments, and about understanding, moving, and changing the minds of diverse audiences.

It's because arts want to cash in on the perceived credibility of science. You'll never catch a physics dept wanting to call their diplomas an arts degree.

Science fiction has been around for a long time, I think scientists "borrow" some ideas from there.

True dat. I think they use creative minds to find new ideas to investigate.
