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.

Elaborate please. I doubt this is sufficient information for people to provide you with an answer which will help you out.

comment Is it good practice to try to recall things when we are tired?
So, "Can tiredness lead to remembering events differently than how they really happened?" If that is your question, please update the title and content accordingly.

I have no idea what you are referring to. Could you elaborate/clarify, preferably entirely rewrite, the second paragraph please?

comment Is there a precise definition of “attitude”?
@rumtscho At this point it would be interesting to update your original question regarding this information. Next time you post a question, consider looking up the definition prior to posting a question so you can better formulate the thing you desire more information on.

comment Are colors real?
"You cannot say that Bill sees this much redness, that much green, and 5% less purple than normal without a strong benchmark." What about tests for color perception?

comment 432 Hz vs. 440 Hz frequencies: health and psychological effects?
I like your background search, however, none of the cited posts point out any blind experimental setups, which should be really straightforward to do. I'm looking forward to seeing some studies on this, which at least from a subjective perspective prove that one hz is preferred over the other. You most likely won't find any resources on the effects on health. That would take a longitudinal study of people constantly listening to 432 hz only vs 440 hz, without them being aware what they are listening to.
