How universal are the two themes of Romare Beardenís Black Odyssey--art and life as improvisation, and the urge, need, and desire to return home? Do these concepts apply to scientific research? What has science to say about improvisation and the creative process?  This panel brings together eminent scientists and musicians to discuss these issues. The evening will explore what recent neuroscience research can tell us about creativity, how scientific research can be improvisational, and whether creativity in the arts and in the sciences really differ after all.
