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 study with the dual-task experiment that involved a colour-wheel change detection task?
Perhaps add a mockup image if you can recall the images better? Try adding more details, what about the discussion section, what about the participants? What was the context of the paper (why did you read it?). I'm sure you can remember more than what is given here right? Include everything you know, and please also mention those parts you don't know about in more detail.

comment Can one incubate on a specific idea in one's sleep?
"I can find no references for this at the moment, however. Sorry" If you can't find any reference (read it doesn't even have to be academic) then this question isn't based on much is it? Please at least google a bit and see whether you can find any reference to back up this assumption. I don't understand the 'Benzene structure' reference, could you add a link, expand on it please? Also please link to the TED talk. Looking forward to your edits! ;p

comment How can I create computer based psychology experiments using OS X?
Usually it is preferred to not just link to a resource, but also give some information about it. I added the quote from the main page and a more direct link to the list of features. Thank you for the answer!

comment Is there a reduction of “Brain Fog” with fewer hours of sleep?
Thank you for the update, and for sharing your knowledge with us! There generally is no need to use an update section in your question when this wouldn't conflict any existing answers. Just write it as you would have the first time around. Also don't feel shy to answer your own question if you found a partial, or even better, complete answer!

+1 This answer is off to a good start! Don't forget to look up some of the impact factors to see whether you can answer that part of the question.

To address the OP's question you would have to at least add the impact factor. You can still edit this answer. Thank you for your input!

I slightly adjusted your final question. Your question should be answered if you are linked to any open access journal with impact factor > 1. Feel free to roll back, but I feel this will cause less controversy.

Improved links. Narrowed down question to fit FAQ.
