image of Timing & Time Perception

This paper is an introduction to the Special Issue on ‘Subjective Duration’ that treats time from a range of perspectives. It presents a brief account of the relatively recent rise of research activity in timing in the areas of conditioning, and highlights the dynamic interest in timing and temporal perception beyond the domain of psychology to philosophy, the arts, and neuroscience.
