Herausgeber: Hede Helfrich
This book focuses on the significance of time in information processing. Distinguished researchers from around the world look at time both as an object of information processing and as a constituent factor in information processing, and then seek to define a unified view of psychological time that bridges the gap between “processing of temporal information” and “temporal processing of information.” In the first part, 6 chapters based generally, but not solely, on the theoretical model of an internal clock describe the latest research and examine critically the current models concerning the abilities and mechanisms of time estimation and temporal coordination in humans and animals. In the second part, research and models concerning temporal factors and properties within processes of perception and memory are covered, including a model focusing on neural binding by synchrony, as well as results of behavioral, neuroimaging, and electrophysiological studies.
