A friend sent me the link below. Although the clarinet was not mentioned, I thought it was worth sharing.

Hans (who is still working on improvising after >60 years...)

Thanks ! Great article. I once found one in a French popular science magazine about a scanner study of musicien's brains while playing that made the point that when improvising, the brain over-rides acquired inihibitions or self-censoring mechanisms and functions as in a dream state. Made a lot of sense. I'll see if I still have it, its was around 2010-11.

I'm not sure if this is the article you were referring to, but it seems on topic of improvisation and brain states:
