Specific Research Projects  Neural correlates of  restructuring and insight

 

We investigate insight problem solving. The focus of our research is on the underlying restructuring of existing prior knowledge structures. We assume that in the sudden moment of restructuring, rapid changes of memory representations take place in the brain. Searching for a neural signature of these processes, we implement a range of stimuli from various domains (verbal, visuo-spatial) and use EEG to assess restructuring
