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 does Lumosity's Flexibility measure?
@Keith Welcome to CogSci. I converted your answer to a comment, since it didn't answer the question. In the process unfortunately part of it was dropped due to comment length restrictions. Please read the faq to find out what constitutes a good answer.

comment Why are most popular humans pets carnivores?
Thanks for the edits and effort put into trying to help Jim @Skippy! Unfortunately I still feel your original comment holds, this question is based on false assumptions, and unless these are either edited out, or better motivated I feel this question isn't fit for CogSci.

comment How long does it take to refocus after context switching?
I believe this finding is not what the OP is after, or at least not how I interpret it. This probably refers to people being distracted, and doing stuff they didn't intend to work on, whereas the OP's question is about what happens after you do switch back to the original task.

comment How long does it take to refocus after context switching?
Nice start, but without a reference to where the 23 minutes come from, or what exactly is intended with duration it doesn't fully answer the question yet. Furthermore this is an observed upper limit.

Could you elaborate a bit please? I am unclear what you mean by 'query for finding an object', and 'reason with situation'.

comment How has psychology categorised different types of love?
What do you already know about it, what did you look up, how did it not satisfy what you were looking for? In what way are the two questions related?
