New ideas, perspectives, and solutions to problems sometimes pop into awareness, seemingly from nowhere. These "eureka" or "aha" moments, what psychological scientists call "insights," have been vehicles for inventions, works of art, scientific discoveries, and self-realizations. Join the Drexel University Alumni Association and the College of Arts and Sciences after-hours at the Franklin Institute for an alumni reception and fascinating discussion with John Kounios, professor of psychology and director of Drexel University's doctoral program in applied cognitive and brain sciences, in which he will explain what eureka experiences are, why you need them, and what factors help you to have more of them. After the discussion, guests will enjoy exclusive access to the Franklin Institute's newest—and biggest permanent exhibition—Your Brain. The exhibition includes more than 70 interactive exhibits, including the 18-foot Neural Climbing Wall, which allows visitors a unique glimpse into the body's most complex system.
