I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

comment Does the brain reconstruct informations from modalities?
You can update your question, including a reference to the book you found, and explain why that does not fully answer your question yet. If that particular book does provide an answer to your question, rather than posting a link to it as an answer, explain why it provides an answer.

comment Should raw response time data be transformed?
Welcom to CogSci! Your question is on topic here, but in case you don't get a suitable answer over the course of some time, you can ask for migration to CrossValidated which is a SE site specializing in statistics.

comment average attention time and average attention compensation time
Self-help questions are off-topic here on CogSci. Try to rephrase your question in a general way, framing it within a minimum of researched material so people possibly answering it can better help you find what you want.

comment Why does not everyone avoid peak hour rushes?
Because they have to be somewhere at any given time? What motivates you to believe in a cognitive aspect?

comment Obey any command given suddenly, as in the Jumping Frenchmen of Maine
Concerns have been raised regarding the legitimacy of this question. It does not seem to be rooted in literature or actual observed facts, and thus is hard to answer. Adding additional motivation (non-personal) for this question might improve it.

comment How much sleep is required to restore maximum cognitive functioning?
@user1477388 Feel free to edit the question to improve it, simultaneously bumping it. This way it might receive reopen votes. As it is the question did not change, so I see no reason to reopen.

from the body, the OP asks why the working memory limit is so low (a few items) and not why it exists at all

Where did you gather the initial information of your 'novice description'? In what way does or doesn't that source address the subsequent answers?
