From DNA to Complex Cognition : How we Learn, Discover, and Create the World

For over 20 years, Professor Kevin Dunbar of the University of Toronto has been engaged in studying how people engage in complex reasoning, social interactions, and real-world problem solving. In this presentation he discusses key processes he has discovered that explain the nature of human insight and how humans create new knowledge. His findings provide an understanding of the mechanisms that make complex thinking possible and suggest new ways that creative thought and discovery can be facilitated across a broad range of contexts.
