Memory, Metacognition, & Creative Cognition Lab
Steve Smith & SmithLab
Where do ideas come from? Research in our laboratory examines the cognitive and neuroscientific mechanisms that bring memories and creative ideas to mind. Much of our current research concerns blocks that obstruct memory, creative thinking, and problem solving, a phenomenon known more generally as fixation. That is, we study how memories and ideas come to mind by focusing on what prevents them from coming to mind.
