Background:Creativity is the ability to re-experience mental representations (Artola and Barraca, 2004). Sense-figurative, metamemory and abstraction are prefrontal-anterior functions. The question arises about relationship between creativity and prefrontal-anterior functions.
Objective: To analyze relationship between creativity and figurative_sense, metamemory and abstraction in high ability students.
Method: Descriptive cross-sectional correlational study, 8-10 years old (n=25) with high ability (IQ=133).
Instruments: PIC-N (Artola and Barraca, 2004) and BANFE-2 (Flores, et al., 2014).
Analysis: Spearman correlation between BANFE-2 and PIC-N.
Results: Large correlations between figurative_sense and creativity/fluency (r=.834, p≤0.05), creativity/special_details(r=.811, p≤0.05), creativity/narrative(r=.750, p≤0.05), creativity /graphic(r=.822, p≤0.05), and general_creativity(r=.745, p≤0.05); abstraction and metamemory without correlations.
Conclusions: Creativity is favored by relationship with prefrontal-anterior functions. An intervention proposal is presented.
