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 How can motivation be increased by improving brain chemistry with nutrition and activities?
It seems like nutritionist advice, which didn't leave a good impression on me after reading Ben Goldacre's Bad Science. However, the question is a valid one, so +1!

comment How good are people at guessing the ages of their respective ethnic group?
Since a google search for "other race effect" popped up an article which discusses "cross-race effect" which seems to be what you are referring to, I updated your answer as such.

comment How good are people at guessing the ages of their respective ethnic group?
Not too sure about that. However, you do need to use a possessive form, so then it would become "peoples's ages". :) Or you could say "the age of western peoples", but then it just gets confusing whether you are referring to the age of the group of people, or just the people in those groups. Personally I prefer my edit, but of course you are always free to edit the question again. ;p

comment How does body temperature affect perception of time?
I understand the question, but for it to be taken seriously it at least has to be framed as a real question and not just any possible hypothesis. Look for any references which lead you to asking this question. E.g. "Does the average intelligence of a bunny increase when drinking soup on a daily basis?" is also a 'clear' question.

From where do you get the notion that people in general drink cold beverages during a horror movie and warm drinks while coding?

comment 'Model-free' learning in humans
Ideally, answer it yourself and go a bit more in depth in your answer while reading through the google hits you now found. It's a genuine question, I prefer not closing it. Just make sure you google a bit better next time. ;p
