Psychology of time

"Psychology of Time will provide cutting-edge presentations on the main theoretical and empirical issues in the fascinating and rapidly expanding field of time perception and psychological time. Chapters explore what is currently known in the field and what avenues remain to be explored. It is important to understand that the field has been growing very quickly over the past 10 years." "As it stands now, the volume would focus on, but not be restricted to, the main theories and findings that experimental psychology has provided on the questions of psychological time and timing mechanisms. A very important feature of the book is that its chapters would be written by world-renowned experts in their respective fields. Contributors have been selected for their ability to address certain specific questions, with a view to ensuring the volume will form a coherent whole." "Psychologists and psychology students, especially those who are drawn to cognitive science, would be the most likely to take an interest in the book. Students in philosophy and neuroscience should also find it useful and informative. In fact, it would probably attract a large number and variety of readers with an interest in the question of time."--Jacket
