Most people claim they do their best thinking in the bathroom. Indeed, many problems find a solution, and mysteries of the universe get solved on the can.
What’s the secret?
Alice Flaherty a renowned neuroscientist may have the answer. She thinks the magic word here would be “dopamine.” Yes! Dopamine, the element that helps control the brain's reward and pleasure centers and regulate movement and emotional responses.
“People vary in terms of their level of creative drive according to the activity of the dopamine pathways of the limbic system,” she says.
It simply means that events and activities that make us feel great and relaxed give us an increased dopamine flow increasing the chances of having great ideas.
