Brain Activity Differs For Creative And Noncreative Thinkers
A new study led by John Kounios, professor of Psychology at Drexel University and Mark Jung-Beeman of Northwestern University answers these questions by comparing the brain activity of creative and noncreative problem solvers. The study, published in the journal Neuropsychologia, reveals a distinct pattern of brain activity, even at rest, in people who tend to solve problems with a sudden creative insight — an “Aha! Moment” – compared to people who tend to solve problems more methodically.

This program on the “Zen Brain” at Upaya looks very interesting.

    That program does look great! I wish I had more vacation time. I’m a big fan of Austin’s books. But… Any time spent in retreat during the coming year is time not spent backpacking Europe with my son this coming summer. I wonder how my new boss feels about unpaid leave. :-)

    very interesting article. i wonder, what exactly is taking place in the brain during those remote associations? what exactly is bouncing around my brain that adds up everything to create that “Aha” moment?
