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.

Welcome to Cognitive Sciences! Unfortunately this question is too broad to be answered within the format of the site. As StrangeLoop pointed out, in case you would narrow down to a particular aspect you are interested in it might be more appropriate.

comment Which statistical tests to use when analyzing NASA TLX?
I posted this here since it is a workload measure, but perhaps I can move it to CrossValidated in case I don't get answers here.

Great question, however as Nick pointed out, I don't feel it is a good fit here. I already asked how History.SE feels about it just in case. We'll see what others think ...

It is not clear how the paper by Ylias and Heaven (2003) addresses background noise. They do refer to and discuss another study as part of their introduction, but their study focuses on television distraction effects, not music. It seems more appropriate to reference the old original study in your answer, and also highlight the differences in personality types.
