    Incubation and cueing effects in problem-solving: Set aside the difficult problems but focus on the easy ones.Ut Na Sio & Thomas C. Ormerod - 2015 - Thinking and Reasoning 21 (1):113-129.
    Evidence for incubation effects in problem-solving is increasing, but the mechanisms that underlie incubation are unclear. An experiment tested two hypotheses about incubation: Spreading activation and opportunistic assimilation. Participants solved easy or difficult remote associates tasks without incubation period, or with an incubation period filled with high or low cognitive load tasks. A lexical decision task with cue and neutral words was given either before or after a second problem attempt. When solving difficult problems, the low-load incubation group benefitted more (...)
