The paper relates that researchers Volz, Rbsamen and Von Cramon conducted a study that was designed to measure how intuition is based on memories that are stored. The paper explains the framework that the researchers used that is based on Gestalt psychology and discusses the principles that the researchers were interested in. The paper notes that the researchers admit that there could be certain things that have biased their study because no study can control for all of the possible variables, however, they seem relatively confident that their results are significant. The paper includes a copy of the article with the paper.
From the Paper:"Researchers Volz, Rbsamen and Von Cramon conducted a study that was designed to measure how intuition is based on memories that are stored. Intuition is that feeling that people get when they think they know something even though they have no reason to. For example, have you ever felt that there is something just not right about someone you met? Most of the past studies on intuition have focused on visual memories, or memories based on images. However these researchers wanted to focus on auditory memories, or memories that are based on sound. Basically, they wanted to see if people's feelings of intuition are related to sound memories that they have already stored in a part of the brain known as the cortical regions.
"The framework that the researchers used is based on Gestalt psychology, which is a branch of science dealing with the five senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch. The Waterloo Gestalt Closure task was the principle that they were most interested in. Closure occurs when the mind fills in the missing parts because enough information is provided that those parts can be logically filled in. The following picture is a visual example of this principle."
