An Endogenous Metric for the Control of Perception of Brief Temporal Intervals


Hancock, P.A. (1984). An endogenous metric for the control of perception of brief temporal intervals. Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, 423, 594-596.

The biochemical clock hypothesis, advanced by Hoagland in 1993, suggested the existence of a unitary neurophysical process which subsumed the human perception of brief temporal intervals. The resultant, necessary, and exclusive linear relationship required by this construct was supported by early observations as shown in FIGURE I. In subsequent investigations, although a general linear trend has been affirmed, the lack of consistency across individuals has refuted the notion of a simple governable metabolic pacemaker as originally envisaged.
