We are excited to be a part of not just one but TWO academic studies!
We flew out to San Francisco to have our brains studied under fMRI by world-renowned researcher Charles Limb. Charles was the pioneer who first studied the brains of jazz improvisers and discovered that they suppress their dorso lateral pre-frontal cortext (DL-PFC) when improvising (check out his TedTalk). Now he’s looking at comedic improvisers and asked us to be a part of it. Neuroscience and improvisation - who knew?!
His work ultimately inspired us to create ExperienceYes and write our book Brain Disruption
