Distractions Can Aid Creativity (57:00) Dr. Darya L. Zabelina is an NSF Graduate Research Fellow at Northwestern University studying cognitive processes, affective processes, motivation, personality, and neural aspects involved in creativity.

She is an expert in perception, synesthesia, blindsight, consciousness, neuropsychiatry and emotions and is currently the Editor of the international peer-reviewed philosophy journal Erkenntnis.
