Presentation at the University of Rijeka, Croatia

I just returned from another pleasant stay at the University of Rijeka Faculty of Psychology, where I was invited to give a talk on psychology & technology.

This time, I chose to tell the story of how growing up in “Philips City” Eindhoven, with its famous NatLab and its creative, nonconformist and open technological and scientific climate …

… brought me to study Cognitive Psychology at Leiden University

… in seeking to apply recent technological developments to study human behavior. A journey from dynamic robotics …

… to dynamic embodied cognitive processes …

… to how emotions might best be studied as non-linear emergent processes …

… which can now be studied through computational methods …

… always remaining careful not to loose track of multiple levels of explanation.

Hvala ti!
