More on UCLA mental time keeping theory

More press coverage (Scientific (see post the other day) highlighting the new UCLA research suggesting an alternative to the traditional pacemaker-accumulator model of mental or interval time-keeping in the brain.

According to Warren Meck, one of the prominent mental time researchers previously featured at this blog:
  • "This paper has important implications for our every day perception of the temporal relationships among all of the sights and sounds that we process." He adds that the study complements his research focusing on internal clock mechanisms—which he has localized to the basal ganglia at the brain's center—at durations of seconds to hours involving cognitive and memory processes.
