"Until now, researchers had not had a good way to study how people actually experienced what is called 'epiphany learning'."

Science Daily: In new research, scientists at The Ohio State University used eye-tracking and pupil dilation technology to see what happens as people figured out how to win a strategy game on a computer. by Jeff Grabmeier via Ohio State University

'"We could see our study participants figuring out the solution through their eye movements as they considered their options," said Ian Krajbich, co-author of the study and assistant professor of psychology and economics at Ohio State.

'"We could predict they were about to have an epiphany before they even knew it was coming."

'Krajbich conducted the study with James Wei Chen, a doctoral student in economics at Ohio State. Their results were published this week in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.'
