The Neuroscience of Aha! Moments

2018, TEDx Romania

EUREKA! AHA! We use triumphant terminology to describe what has for centuries been believed to be an essentially inexplicable, metaphysical experience. Einstein called it the “Sacred Gift”. Some call it intuition. Others describe is as “Divine inspiration”. 


For centuries we have believed that people stumble upon breakthroughs by chance or through some stroke of genius. But what if genius is not a chance occurrence? What if we can deliberately create more Aha! Moments in our lives? Neuroscience says we can. 

New scientific discoveries have now overturned two centuries of metaphysical musings when it comes to breakthroughs. Recent MRI scans show what happens to our brains when we are producing an AHA! Not only can AHAs now be quantified in empirical facts. We now have the effortless and accessible practices to deliberately create them.


In April 2018, TEDx Tîrgu Mureș was scouting for stories were going to "break the chains of the city... We don't want to bring you the rule-followers or the permission-seekers. We want to show you the shapers of the future. Those who had the willpower to unchain their minds, and ultimately unchain your future."
