    Strangers look sicker (with implications in times of COVID‐19).Paola Bressan - 2021 - Bioessays 43 (3):2000158.
    We animals have evolved a variety of mechanisms to avoid conspecifics who might be infected. It is currently unclear whether and why this “behavioral immune system” targets unfamiliar individuals more than familiar ones. Here I answer this question in humans, using publicly available data of a recent study on 1969 participants from India and 1615 from the USA. The apparent health of a male stranger, as estimated from his face, and the comfort with contact with him were a direct function (...)

    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 (...)
