The purpose of our research is to determine if stimulation increases someone's flow logic. We split the test subjects into two groups; stimulated and unstimulated. The stimulated group received a ball to squeeze, while the unstimulated group served as a control. Subjects completed a quiz, via computer. The resulting scores were compared between the groups, and it was found that the stimulated group performed better than the control group.
