    In this thesis, we used a neurophenomenological approach to study the phenomenon of solving computational problems. We designed a study where we monitored the participants physiological responses and subjective experience in parallel, while the participants were solving computational tasks. To gather a description of the experience, we used the technique of micro-phenomenological interview, and physiological responses were obtained by measuring skin conductance. Physiological responses and experiential characteristics were analyzed separately and attempted to be typologized. We also examined possible connections between physiological and experiential data. We found that there is a connection between attitude towards solving computational problems and the emotional state of the participant. Additionally, we found that the visual display of time negatively affects experiential data, physiological data and performance. The results of our study could bring new insights to the diversity of physiological and experiential characteristics of solving computational problems.
