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 What is the scientific support for Einstein's claim about the negative effects of reading too much?
Isn't "too" always implying it is bad? Otherwise it wouldn't be "too".

comment Validity of regression therapy and degree of acceptance of the subject within the psychology community
Welcome to CogSci Aneesh! I think this is a good question, but in general we expect a degree of initial research. What do you know about the subject? Which resources that you know of support your assumptions? (also link to them) Please read 'how-to-ask' carefully.

Consider merging this with your other answer instead. However, much thanks for following up on your question!

Your link to 'considerable nervous system' doesn't work for me. Consider updating it in line with our site guidelines as I've demonstrated for the other reference. Great answer! +1

comment Difference between parallel processing done by human brain and by computers
Nice of you to point out the brain actually does multitask, of which breathing and controlling muscles are very good examples. You make some interesting comments, but I can't up vote this as an answer.

comment Difference between parallel processing done by human brain and by computers
It might also be interesting to look into some papers discussing multitasking, I'm quite certain plenty of research has been done related to that.

comment Difference between parallel processing done by human brain and by computers
One thing I can answer: comparing a neuron to a computational unit seems wrong to me. Rather a set of neurons could make up a computational unit to some degree.

comment Why do we become bored of stimuli after multiple exposures to it?
Interesting question. While you await an answer try looking for the answer yourself to possibly show some initial research yourself first. You can still update this question with any new information you find.
