Space-time in the brain

Concetta Morrone, David Burr

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews recent studies concerning the perception of event duration and the relation between space and time in the brain. It explains evidence showing that the perception of event duration is strongly linked to our perception of space. The results of the studies reviewed collectively show that space and time are intrinsically interconnected and that adaptation to duration is spatially selective while the temporal distortions that occur during saccades are closely linked to contemporaneous spatial distortions.
