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 are “Stimulus locked” and “Response locked” in Philiastides & Sajda (2006)
In order for these questions to be useful for others, could you please stick to one word you don't understand per question (and actually state this in the title)? Also shortly explain the context they are used in in the paper. Lastly, google for it and see whether you can find some info immediately. List what you do get, and then ask what you don't fully get.

comment Is there evidence that “people in Eastern societies are more in touch with their communities while Western societies value uniqueness more”?
Overall, albeit interesting, I think the discussion about racism is outside the scope for this question, so I suggest you remove it.

As to the comment on racism, I think it's best if you read through it's definition a bit more thoroughly. Just stating differences between races is not racism. "and especially the belief that races can be ranked as inherently superior or inferior to others, or that members of different races should be treated differently." On the other hand, you might fall in the latter category of: "Critics argue that the term is applied differentially, with a focus on such prejudices by whites, and defining mere observations of racial differences as racism."

Which lecture? Could you please clarify/provide a link to your sources so we have a better idea of where you are coming from?

Could you clarify that last point in the answer as well, preferably also distinguishing between your own deductions and between results from published work?

comment Correlation between anxiety/calmness and innovation development?
This does not answer the question. The paper you reference "Motivation and creativity: Effects of motivational orientation on creative writers." investigates intrinsic and extrinsic motivation where they refer to extrinsic as e.g. approval/rewards. This is unrelated to the OP's question referring to anxiety/calmness. The other half of the answer about depression is entirely off topic.

comment Can we enter data at the speed of thought?
What is your question? (1) "Can we enter data at the speed of thought?", (2) "What are the effects of slower text entry than the speed of thinking?" (I don't get the 'compared to' here), or (3) "Is there a correlation ...?" Correlation between what and what? Could you please elaborate and pinpoint the exact question you are interested in?

comment What percentage of systematic data starts to be considered random
In case you don't get any good answers here (wait for it some time) let me know. I could merge this to Cross Validated. However, I think this is on topic here as well.

comment Would a teacher benefit from reading psychology journals?
@NickStauner The question got flagged as spam, which must have been the reason. I don't see any problem with it however, given that the OP was asking for advice similar to this explicitly.
