Contemporary researches of subjective times


Nature is not hurries to reveal its secrets. The researchers who are investigating that subject have to act to the accompaniment of nature's resounding  laughter of  over the human mind. It takes courage, physical and mental strain to study a tenuous basis of human existence, the time. Nature makes fun of new-come scientists: here are another ones with a hope to discover something after Hilbert, Minkowski, Fridman, Einstein (those  who managed to find out that space and time themselves are doomed to become fictions, and only a certain unity of them both retains an  objective reality), after Gödel who put in doubt the existence of  objective time and believed that time is subjective and that it is an illusion.

Penetration into the nature of time is continuing.

  How Marc Wittmann remarks:  “A large number of competing models exist for how the brain creates a representation of time”. https:/     

Simon Grondin, Université Laval, remarks: “Indeed, myriad theoretical explanations make no mention of a central mechanism that is dedicated to the processing of temporal information. For instance, researchers with a cognitive background have described time perception in terms of cognitive mechanisms, without referring to the idea that there is an internal clock (see Block, 2003; Block & Zakay, 2008)”. Timing and time perception: A review of recent behavioral and neuroscience findings and theoretical directions.

 Three  surveys best of all had been thrown light on state contemporary researches.

That is 125th Anniversary Article “The Psychology of Time: A View Backward and Forward”,   P.A.Hancock and Richard A.Block.

Impressive review “How cognitive load affects duration judgments: A meta-analytic review”       Richard A.Block,       Peter A.Hancock            Dan Zakay.  

And article “The experience of time: neural mechanisms and the interplay of emotion, cognition and embodiment” by Marc Wittmann and Virginie van Wassenhove
