Dr Rory MacLean

My main research interest is the relationship between creativity and ageing, and I have investigated this by looking at divergent thinking, creative activities, creative mental synthesis and subjectively judged creativity. Other areas of interest include the relationship between creativity and other cognitive variables (e.g. attention), the judgement of creative products, cognitive ageing, and the psychology of performing arts.
