You all know the situation described in the title. You forgot something and start to search your memory and then after quite a while it jumps right in front of you, out of nowhere.
My questions are:
- What happens in the brain during that moment of awareness?
- Is it different from when we know something right away, since the subconscious mind is working for quite a while to produce the answer?
- Is it possible to measure this moment and was it done already?
