Title: "Aha!" Moments in the Brain
Speaker: Dr. John Kounios, professor of psychology
There are two forms of thought that people use to solve problems. Analytic thought is conscious, deliberate, and methodical. In contrast, insightful thought yields a solution suddenly (i.e., an “Aha!” moment) after a period of unconscious processing. Many breakthrough ideas in science, business, art, and religion occurred as sudden insights. This talk will explore what happens in the brain when a person has an "Aha!" moment and what factors can promote insight.
This event is free and open to the Drexel community. Light refreshments will be served.
