  1. pmc Neural activity when people solve verbal problems with insight
    Mark Jung-Beeman
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois, USA
    PLoS Biol 2:E97. 2004
    ..Although all problem solving relies on a largely shared cortical network, the sudden flash of insight occurs when solvers engage distinct neural and cognitive processes that allow them to see connections that previously eluded them...
  2. ncbi request reprint Bilateral brain processes for comprehending natural language
    Mark Jung-Beeman
    Department of Psychology, and Cognitive Brain Mapping Group, Northwestern University, 2029 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208 2710, USA
    Trends Cogn Sci 9:512-8. 2005
    ..Examining asymmetrical brain and cognitive functions provides a unique opportunity for understanding the neural basis of complex cognition...

    John Kounios
    Department of Psychology, Drexel University, MS 626, 245 N 15th St, Philadelphia, PA 19102 1192, USA
    Psychol Sci 17:882-90. 2006
    ..Thus, general preparatory mechanisms modulate problem-solving strategy...
  4. ncbi request reprint New approaches to demystifying insight
    Edward M Bowden
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, 2029 Sheridan Road, Evanston, IL 60208, USA
    Trends Cogn Sci 9:322-8. 2005
    ..Behavioral priming and neuroimaging methods are providing evidence about what, where, and how neural activity occurs during insight. Such evidence constrains theories of component processes, and will help to demystify insight...
  5. ncbi request reprint A brain mechanism for facilitation of insight by positive affect
    Karuna Subramaniam
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, IL 60208 2710, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 21:415-32. 2009
    ..This result suggests that positive mood enhances insight, at least in part, by modulating attention and cognitive control mechanisms via ACC, perhaps enhancing sensitivity to detect non-prepotent solution candidates...

    Department of Psychology, Drexel University, Philadelphia, PA 19102 1192, USA
    Neuropsychologia 46:281-91. 2008
    ..These results reveal a relationship between resting-state brain activity and problem-solving strategy, and, more generally, a dependence of event-related neural computations on the preceding resting state...

    Edward M Bowden
    Department of Neurology, Rush Medical Center, Chicago, IL, USA
    Behav Res Methods Instrum Comput 35:634-9. 2003
    ..These normative data can be used in selecting problems on the basis of difficulty or mean time necessary for reaching a solution...
  9. doi request reprint Hemispheric differences in processing the literal interpretation of idioms: converging evidence from behavioral and fMRI studies
    Nira Mashal
    The Leslie and Susan Gonda Goldschmied Multidisciplinary Brain Research Center, Bar Ilan University, Israel
    Cortex 44:848-60. 2008
    ..We suggest that these RH areas are involved in semantic ambiguity resolution and in processing nonsalient meanings of conventional idiomatic expressions...
  10. doi request reprint Inferences during story comprehension: cortical recruitment affected by predictability of events and working memory capacity
    Sandra Virtue
    Department of Psychology, DePaul University, Chicago, IL 60614, USA
    J Cogn Neurosci 20:2274-84. 2008
    ..These results suggest that the predictability of a text (i.e., the causal constraint) and the working memory capacity of the comprehender influence the different neural substrates involved during the generation of bridging inferences...
  11. ncbi request reprint Aha! Insight experience correlates with solution activation in the right hemisphere
    Edward M Bowden
    Department of Psychology, Northwestern University, Evanston, Illinois 60208 2710, USA
    Psychon Bull Rev 10:730-7. 2003
    ..We believe semantic activation in both hemispheres cooperatively contributes to problem solving, but weak solution activation that contributes to the Aha! experience is more likely to occur in the RH than in the LH...
