Flow is a state of “optimal experience” that arises when skill and task demands match. Flow has been well studied in psychology using a range of self-report and experimental methods; with most research typically focusing on how Flow is elicited by a particular task. Here, we focus on how the experience of Flow changes during task skill development....

HPC arises when a highly demanding cognitive task is performed with high skill, and is hypothesized to be due to tuning of attention. Yet true understanding is elusive because currently HPC can only be identified by subjective reports after-the-fact, making it difficult to study the precise neural mechanisms.
