    Neuropsychopharmacology, an interdisciplinary field of study connected to basic neuroscience and psychopharmacology of how medications affect the mind, is the study of the brain pathways that pharmaceuticals work upon to alter behavior.

Cognition and emotion, the two main mental processes that combine to generate psychological processes, are both related to creativity. Almost all forms of creativity are primarily motivated by emotion, sometimes inadvertently.
