Activation Likelihood Estimation (ALE) is an objective, quantitative technique for coordinate-based meta-analysis (CBMA) of neuroimaging results that has been validated for a variety of uses. Stepwise modifications have improved ALE's theoretical and statistical rigor since its introduction. Here, we evaluate two avenues to further optimize ALE. First, we(More)
Although there has been an explosion of interest in the neural correlates of time perception during the past decade, substantial disagreement persists regarding the structures that are relevant to interval timing. We addressed this important issue by conducting a comprehensive, voxel-wise meta-analysis using the activation likelihood estimation algorithm;(More)
Coull and Nobre (2008) suggested that tasks that employ temporal cues might be divided on the basis of whether these cues are explicitly or implicitly processed. Furthermore, they suggested that implicit timing preferentially engages the left cerebral hemisphere. We tested this hypothesis by conducting a quantitative meta-analysis of eleven neuroimaging(More)
Previous studies have suggested that contingent negative variation (CNV), as recorded by electroencaphalography (EEG), may serve as an index of temporal encoding. The interpretation of these studies is complicated by the fact that, in a majority of studies, the CNV signal was obtained at a time when subjects were not only registering stimulus duration but(More)
We report data from 31 subjects with focal hemisphere lesions (15 left hemisphere) as well as 16 normal controls on a battery of tasks assessing the estimation, production and reproduction of time intervals ranging from 2-12 s. Both visual and auditory stimuli were employed for the estimation and production tasks. First, ANOVAs were performed to assess the(More)
The cerebellum has long been implicated in time perception, particularly in the subsecond range. The current set of studies examines the role of the cerebellum in suprasecond timing, using analysis of behavioral data in subjects with cerebellar lesions. Eleven cerebellar lesion subjects and 17 controls were tested on temporal estimation, reproduction and(More)
A number of lines of evidence implicate dopamine in timing [Rammsayer, T. H. Neuropharmacological approaches to human timing. In S. Grondin (Ed.), Psychology of time (pp. 295-320). Bingley, UK: Emerald, 2008; Meck, W. H. Neuropharmacology of timing and time perception. Brain Research, Cognitive Brain Research, 3, 227-242, 1996]. Two human genetic(More)
We tested human participants on a modified peak procedure in order to investigate the relation between interval timing and reward processing, and examine the interaction of this relation with three different dopamine-related gene polymorphisms. These gene polymorphisms affected the expression of catechol-o-methyltransferase, which catabolizes synaptic(More)
