Incubation and Interactivity in Insight Problem Solving

Insight is commonly viewed as originating from the restructuring of a mental representation. Distributed cognition frameworks such as the Systemic Thinking Model (SysTM, Vallée-Tourangeau & Vallée-Tourangeau, 2017), however, assumes that information …

Cognition beyond the classical information processing model: Cognitive interactivity and the Systemic Thinking Model (SysTM)
