What are the creative benefits of integrating science with art in education? New Zealand film-maker and US film school chair Bruce Sheridan uses recent research to provide the answer.

Bruce draws from neuroscience and cognitive psychology to show that the same capacities underpin our science and art abilities, allowing them to benefit from each other. He argues that as technologies replace many human skills, the important contributions of future graduates will be creative.
