  • Abstract It is proposed that (a) creativity and innovation are the result of continuously repetitive processes of working memory that are learned as cognitive control models in the cerebellum, (b) that these cerebellar control models consist of multiple-paired predictor (forward) models within the MOdular Selection and Identification for Control (MOSAIC) and hierarchical MOSAIC (HMOSAIC) cerebellar architectures that explore and test problem-solving requirements, and (c) when resulting newly… CONTINUE READING
