The electrophysiological correlates of "Chinese anagrams" solving were studied using high-density event-related potentials (ERPs). Results showed that Insight solutions elicited a more positive ERP deflection (P400-600) than did Search solutions in the time window of 400-600 ms. Dipole source analysis showed that the generator of P400-600 was localized in the fusiform gyrus, which might be involved in breaking mental sets during reconstruction of the Chinese anagrams. Then, Insight solutions… CONTINUE READING
