Re: interval perception

I would talk to Alan Wing at Birmingham Uni. He did a series of papers in the 1980s on the accuracy of the internal clock using finger tapping and a sophisticate lag-1 autocorrelation technique.

I will copy this message to him to make the connection.

Dear list,

students of mine plan to do a course project on the precission of interval timing perception.

The problem shall be addressed in two lines

- interval bisection - how precise has a signal to be in the middle of an interval to perceive the two resulting intervals as being equal. Does this depent on the duration of the original interval, does it depent on signal properties (tone pulse vs click, pulse frequency)

- if three signals are given in a series, how precisely has the timing of the third stimulus match the interval between the first two signals in order to perceive the two resulting intervals as equal

Could anybody please offer some hints to studies on these topics so we can start an in depth literature search.

Thanks very much
