DISSERTATION

Kramer P (1998, Johns Hopkins University). Linking correspondence matching in stereopsis and apparent motion. UMI Dissertation Services, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.

PUBLICATIONS

My articles are mostly in the area of perception (apparent motion, motion-induced blindness, lightness, and stereopsis) and cognition (number representation and the relationship between attention and cognition). My articles have been cited in international journals 231 times (ISI Web of Knowledge).

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

In English: innovative ideas in psychology, scientific presentation, multivariate statistics (including linear algebra), scientific writing, English, lectures in social and cultural psychology.
In Italian: stereoscopic illusions: theory and practice.

My two favorite articles:
