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 How much sleep is required to restore maximum cognitive functioning?
@user1477388 Feel free to edit the question to improve it, simultaneously bumping it. This way it might receive reopen votes. As it is the question did not change, so I see no reason to reopen.

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 What are the DSM requirements for 'Paranoid Personality Disorder'?
Welcome to CogSci! Please take a quick look at the faq to get an idea of what is going on here. Your post is not considered to be up to standards for Stack Exchange, nor CogSci (e.g. compare it to the other answers). Therefore I will also remove it after some time.

comment What do we call the “middle” variables in a complex research model?
Thank you for asking that question on Stats @caseyr547! Don't hesitate to ping me if this discussion comes to a consensus. As it stands now, I'm not clear on what to do with this question. @rumtscho, if you feel one of the answers here answers the question, just accept it and most likely it will stay here. If they are unsatisfactory, we can try migrating again to a more suitable site if they are willing to accept it.

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

comment Why do people feel the need to make changes to a solution presented by another person?
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?

comment Are most self-help books properly rooted in cognitive sciences?
Take a look at applied psychology. Does that somewhat answer your question? Or on this site perhaps: clinical-psychology

comment Can attention be improved to reduce the frequency of mistakes?
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!

comment Is it hard to change people's beliefs without resorting to marketing techniques? And if so, why?
How do you motivate that only 'some marketing technique' could change people's ideas? To examplify, why does this question make more sense than "Is it possible to state that is hard to help people to 'improve' themselves without using a donkey tied to a chain which performs tricks for them?"

comment Is it hard to change people's beliefs without resorting to marketing techniques? And if so, why?
Thank you. My original question remains: Why would one (without using some marketing technique) follow from the other (people's idea's cannot be changed easily)? Seems like a very bad logical argument to me.

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.
