Creative insight (CI) has been extensively investigated in psychology and cognitive neuroscience, which is defined as the process in which impasses the solver encountered are broken by restructuring and then leads to a peculiar experience accompanying the sudden solution. Numerous studies have greatly extended our knowledge concerning neurocognitive mechanism of CI, and offered robust supports for brain-mind principle of CI (Sternberg and Davidson, 1995). With the emergence of embodied approach (Gallagher, 2015), the relationship between body and CI is a burgeoning issue that has been widely concerned. Here, we elaborated the theoretical framework of triadic interaction of brain-mind-body (TIBMB) for CI, which would deepen our understandings on mind-body relationship and the essence of CI.
