Moments of Epiphany Are Revealed in a Person’s Eyes
Romantics say eyes are windows into the soul. But scientists at Ohio State University (OSU) will tell you a person’s eyes reveal the workings of their mind, too, particularly when struck with an epiphany.
Researchers observed that the participants who had an epiphany also spent more time looking at game outcomes and less time looking at their opponent’s choices.
While epiphany learning appears to happen all at one, the study, which was published in the Proceedings of the Natural Academy of Sciences, shows that through eye movements and pupil size, it’s possible to anticipate aha moments.
