Hollnagel, E. (1971). Informationspsykologi. Dansk Psykolognyt, 16, 307-308.

A modest beginning (and in Danish), basically a proposal for using computers and artificial intelligence (here called androidology) to study mental processes and to establish a new (for Denmark) field of psychological research called informationspsykologi (roughly: information psychology). Today it would probably be called cognitive simulation. The term 'informationspsyklogi' is still in use for courses at several Danish universities. In 1985-86 I was even associate professor (lektor) in Information Psychology at the University of Copenhagen.
