We wish everyone to stay healthy in these difficult times. Our TRF’s March 2020 newsletter is nevertheless available and we will continue to relay the news related to time and timing perception to the best of our ability. Stay safe and take care!
Here is the TRF’s February 2020 newsletter!
We are excited to announce that Dr. Martin Wiener will be joining TRF’s newly instituted ‘Board of Directors’ as our first Director.
Dr. Martin Wiener’s lab is engaged in understanding the neural mechanisms and computations underlying time, space, and action. His work employs numerous techniques, including fMRI, EEG, TMS and tES, as well as combinations of these. His work additionally explores how the neural mechanisms for time adapt to different experimental contexts.
Martin is an active member of the timing research community and we are thrilled to have him on board and help shape TRF’s mission and support its 700+ members community. Martin will be at the TRF2 Conference in Mexico in case anyone wants to discuss anything related to TRF.

Decades-long research in interval timing has primarily focused on the psychophysical properties of this fundamental function typically in consideration of veridical timing behavior. Along the similar vein, generative models of interval timing mostly focus on the processing dynamics of the internal stop-watch in its default mode. Both of these approaches have largely overlooked the malleability of perceived time by exogenous factors such as stimulus intensity and endogenous factors such as physiological arousal. These very relations could actually help researchers better understand the representational constitution of subjective time and the processing dynamics of the internal stop-watch. This special issue aims to cover a wide range of empirical and theoretical work on the effects of different factors (e.g., stimulus features, physiological states, emotional states, drugs) on timing and time perception in humans and other animals.
