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.

Take a look at applied psychology. Does that somewhat answer your question? Or on this site perhaps: clinical-psychology

comment Can attention be improved to reduce the frequency of mistakes?
Welcome to CogSci! I would just like to thank you for this question, as it is a prime example of a non-scientific question which is very clear and interesting nonetheless!

comment Is it hard to change people's beliefs without resorting to marketing techniques? And if so, why?
How do you motivate that only 'some marketing technique' could change people's ideas? To examplify, why does this question make more sense than "Is it possible to state that is hard to help people to 'improve' themselves without using a donkey tied to a chain which performs tricks for them?"

comment Is it hard to change people's beliefs without resorting to marketing techniques? And if so, why?
Thank you. My original question remains: Why would one (without using some marketing technique) follow from the other (people's idea's cannot be changed easily)? Seems like a very bad logical argument to me.

Elaborate please. I doubt this is sufficient information for people to provide you with an answer which will help you out.

comment Is it good practice to try to recall things when we are tired?
So, "Can tiredness lead to remembering events differently than how they really happened?" If that is your question, please update the title and content accordingly.

I have no idea what you are referring to. Could you elaborate/clarify, preferably entirely rewrite, the second paragraph please?
