In my late night web searching I ran across an excellent summary news article that does a decent job of summarizing the broad strokes of contemporary mental time-keeping research. The article "Teach your brain to stretch time" was published at New Scientist.com.
The article highlights the pacemaker-accumulator model of timing and also indicates that another alternative model (coincidence detection model) is gaining status among mental time-keeping researchers. I hope to provide a brief summary of the coincidence detection model sometime soon.
This news type summary article does a good job of summarizing the gist of the major mental time-keeping research. It is worth the read and is a good non-technical article to share with others.
