    Visuospatial priming of the mental number line.Ivilin Stoianov, Peter Kramer, Carlo Umiltà & Marco Zorzi - 2008 - Cognition 106 (2):770-779.
    It has been argued that numbers are spatially organized along a "mental number line" that facilitates left-hand responses to small numbers, and right-hand responses to large numbers. We hypothesized that whenever the representations of visual and numerical space are concurrently activated, interactions can occur between them, before response selection. A spatial prime is processed faster than a numerical target, and consistent with our hypothesis, we found that such a spatial prime affects non-spatial, verbal responses more when the prime follows a (...)

    The Valorization of Sadness Alienation and the Melancholic Temperament.Peter D. Kramer - 2000 - Hastings Center Report 30 (2):13-18.
    In the Western aesthetic of melancholy, alienation and authenticity walk hand in hand, and therapies that change affective states—especially drugs like Prozac—are philosophically suspect. This is not a necessary state of affairs. What would be the central philosophical questions in a culture whose aesthetic values rose from the well‐springs of optimism?

    Belief in God and in strong government as accidental cognitive by-products.Peter Kramer, Paola Bressan, William von Hippel & Robert Trivers - 2011 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 34 (1):31.
    Von Hippel & Trivers (VH&T) interpret belief in God and belief in strong government as the outcome of an active process of self-deception on a worldwide scale. We propose, instead, that these beliefs might simply be a passive spin-off of efficient cognitive processes.

    Ignoring Color in Transparency Perception.Peter Kramer & Paola Bressan - 2010 - Rivista di Estetica 43:147-159.
    Human beings are among the species with the best color perception of all mammals. Yet, transparency can be perceived in scenes in which color cues point to opacity. Why do we ignore such color cues? Here we argue that colors, rather than being passively registered, must be actively recreated and then bound to other stimulus attributes. In this process, the visual system faces fundamental problems, some of which are logically impossible to solve. The resulting unreliability of color perception may go (...)

    Iconic Mathematics: Math Designed to Suit the Mind.Peter Kramer - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    Mathematics is a struggle for many. To make it more accessible, behavioral and educational scientists are redesigning how it is taught. To a similar end, a few rogue mathematicians and computer scientists are doing something more radical: they are redesigning mathematics itself, improving its ergonomic features. Charles Peirce, an important contributor to ordinary symbolic logic, also introduced a rigorous but non-symbolic, graphical alternative to it that is easier to picture. In the spirit of this iconic logic, George Spencer-Brown founded iconic (...)
