Guest: John Kounios, Ph.D., Professor at Drexel University  Have you ever had an “Aha! moment?” Psychologist Dr. John Kounios of Drexel University has discovered that there’s a lot more to those lightbulb moments than the flash of inspiration we call an “epiphany.” The  Aha! itself is really just the tip of the iceberg. Kounios summarized much of his research in a book last year called “The Eureka Factor.” Now he’s taking our understanding of insight further with support from the National Science Foundation.
