Mnemonic Content and Hippocampal Patterns Shape Judgments of Time

Brynn E. Sherman, Sarah DuBrow, Jonathan Winawer & Lila Davachi
Our experience of time can feel dilated or compressed, rather than reflecting true “clock time.” Although many contextual factors influence the subjective perception of time, it is unclear how memory accessibility plays a role in constructing our experience of and memory for time. Here, we used a combination of behavioral and functional MRI measures in healthy young adults (N = 147) to ask the question of how memory is incorporated into temporal duration judgments. Behaviorally,...
