Mechanisms of Incubation in Creative Problem Solving
Olton, Robert M.; Johnson, David M.
American Journal of Psychology, 89, 4, 617-30, Dec 76
Subjects worked on a problem, engaged in an intervening activity, and then resumed work on the problem. Different intervening activities represented various mechanisms that produce incubation (e.g., set breaking, facilitation by analogy, review of the problem's elements). These various treatment groups were compared to a control group that worked on the problem continuously. (Editor)
