Time Perception

Time Perception is a field of psychology and neuroscience, which refers to a person’s subjective experience of the passage of time, or the perceived duration of events, which can differ significantly between different individuals and in different circumstances. It involves the brain’s subconscious tallying of “pulses” during a specific interval, forming a biological stopwatch. It is handled by a highly distributed system involving the cerebral cortex, cerebellum and basal ganglia. It is a construction of the brain that is manipulable and distortable under certain circumstances.
