Snap : seizing your aha! moments by Katherine M Ramsland( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sudden flashes of inspiration have triggered many discoveries and inventions throughout history. Are such Aha! moments merely random or is there a way to train the brain to harness these seemingly unpredictable creative insights? In this overview of the latest neuroscience findings on spontaneous thought processes or "snaps," Dr. Katherine Ramsland describes how everyone can learn to improve the likelihood of their own Eureka moments by adopting certain attitudes and habits. Much more than new ideas, snaps are insights plus momentum. They often occur after ordinary problem solving hits an impasse. We may feel stuck, but the brain is rebooting, and the solution pops into our heads. Written in an accessible, jargon-free narrative, weaving together the latest research with illuminating stories of innovative people, Snap teaches us how to cultivate our own inner epiphanies to gain an edge in business, career paths, and even our personal lives.--From publisher description

Love at Goon Park : Harry Harlow and the science of affection by Deborah Blum( Book )

25 editions published between 2002 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deborah Blum examines the history of love through the lens of its strangest unsung hero: a brilliant, fearless, alcoholic psychologist named Harry Frederick Harlow. Pursuing the idea that human affection could be understood, studied, even measured, Harlow (1905-1981) arrived at his conclusions by conducting research--sometimes beautiful, sometimes horrible--on the primates in his University of Wisconsin laboratory. Paradoxically, his darkest experiments may have the brightest legacy, for by studying "neglect" and its life-altering consequences, Harlow confirmed love's central role in shaping not only how we feel but also how we think. Blum views him as a pioneer in demonstrating the vital importance of relationships and love to health and survival
