"A watched pot by no means boils" and, conversely, "time flies if you end up having enjoyable" well seize the experimental remark that the measure of realization allotted to stimulus timing contributes to its subjective length. eventually, part three examines how awareness may be directed in time, to predictable or anticipated moments in time, with a view to optimise behaviour.

Bringing conceptually discrete, but functionally comparable, fields of temporal recognition study jointly inside a unmarried quantity, this e-book offers a entire review that may be of price to the beginner in cognitive neuroscience, while additionally inspiring specialists within the box to make, maybe formerly neglected, hyperlinks with their very own box of analysis.
