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.

revised Why is working memory so small?
from the body, the OP asks why the working memory limit is so low (a few items) and not why it exists at all

Consider updating your question as you find new information to narrow it down.

comment Early Alzheimer's and cognitive remediation programs
Where did you gather the initial information of your 'novice description'? In what way does or doesn't that source address the subsequent answers?

comment Can a person “self-induce” the placebo effect?
Is this a reply to julian fernandez his comment? If so just write a short summary as a comment there, possibly several comments. This does not seem relevant to the OP at all.

comment Why do people feel the need to make changes to a solution presented by another person?
Criticism is part of Stack Exchange's Q&A system. It's a way to indicate why one answer is more suitable than the other, and gives you a chance to motivate/update your answer according to that critique. It's nothing personal, that's why I welcomed you, ... you are very welcome to CogSci. ;p

Welcome to CogSci! This does not seem to answer the question, and is rather an unrelated piece of information. That aside, we also generally expect references in answers to make them stronger, e.g. take a look at Eoin's answer.

comment Increasing the quantity of something which is initially good will always lead to an excess?
Doesn't the very definition of excess or too much imply that it has a negative effect?

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

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!
