Tick Tock, Where's Your Brain's Clock?
Frank Giorlando, The Conversation
Our perception of time is something we take for granted. It drags. It goes too fast. It’s always there in the background, ticking away.
But the means by which we measure, interpret and remember the flow of events in time is a difficult problem for neuroscientists.
While we understand much of the ways in which the brain is involved in the perception of objects in space, our understanding of the mechanisms of temporal awareness remain crude, to say the least.
