Thinking on Your Back 

That's right. A new study (with a distressingly small n, but whatever) indicates that people are more creative and smarter lying on their backs than standing up. The interesting bit is that you apparently produce less noradrenaline - which may or may not impair cognition - when lying down. Very cool!

First, I want a daybed in my office.

Second, I want to know if my secretary's creativity will be additionally enhanced with his legs in the air.
