Distortions in time perception and timed performance are presented by a number of different neurological and psychiatric conditions (e.g. Parkinson's disease, schizophrenia, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and autism). As a consequence, the primary focus of this review is on factors that define or produce systematic changes in the attention, clock, memory and decision stages of temporal processing as originally defined by Scalar Expectancy Theory. These findings are used to evaluate… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Time perception impairs sensory-motor integration in Parkinson’s disease
TLDR
The pathophysiology and sensorimotor integration process in PD, the theories and neural basic mechanisms involved in temporal processing, and the main clinical findings about the impact of time perception in PD are discussed.
Time Dysperception Perspective for Acquired Brain Injury
TLDR
Timing abilities in clinical populations with focal lesions in key brain structures recently implicated in human studies of timing are surveyed and timing performance in amnesic and traumatic brain injured patients is reviewed to identify the nature of specific timing disorders in different brain damaged populations.
Predictive timing disturbance is a precise marker of schizophrenia
Time perception distortion in neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders.
TLDR
Neurobiological relations from the clinical perspective is explored, examining timing ability in patients with different neurological and psychiatric conditions (e.g. Parkinson's disease, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and schizophrenia).
Impaired Representation of Time in Schizophrenia Is Linked to Positive Symptoms and Cognitive Demand
TLDR
The present data support the notion of a deficit in anticipatory and predictive mechanisms in schizophrenia that is modulated both by symptom manifestation and by cognitive demand.
A Unified Model of Time Perception Accounts for Duration-Based and Beat-Based Timing Mechanisms
TLDR
A unified model of time perception based on coordinated activity in the core striatal and olivocerebellar networks that are interconnected with each other and the cerebral cortex through multiple synaptic pathways is proposed.
Contributions of the Basal Ganglia to Temporal Processing: Evidence from Parkinson’s Disease
TLDR
Although there is convincing evidence from PD that the basal ganglia are critical to motor and perceptual timing, further work is needed to characterize the precise contribution of this complex structure to temporal processing.
The Fast Spiking Subpopulation of Striatal Neurons Coding for Temporal Cognition of Movements
TLDR
The results reveal the potential mechanism of time calibration in a short temporal resolution, which may help to explain the neural basis of motor coordination affected by certain physiological or pathological conditions.
Executive dysfunction in Parkinson’s disease and timing deficits
TLDR
How PD-related cognitive symptoms contribute to timing deficits is discussed, suggesting that timing may be a type of executive function in Parkinson’s disease.

Time perception depends on accurate clock mechanisms as well as unimpaired attention and memory processes.
TLDR
A series of studies aimed at characterizing the relationships between duration judgments and slowing down of the internal clock, attention and memory deficits clarify the respective weight of processing speed, Attention and memory in both tasks, and allow better insight into the theoretical models of psychological time.

Background Parkinson's disease (PD) disrupts temporal processing, but the neuronal sources of deficits and their response to dopamine (DA) therapy are not understood. Though the striatum and DA
Temporal processing dysfunction in schizophrenia
Coupled Temporal Memories in Parkinson's Disease: A Dopamine-Related Dysfunction
TLDR
Patients with Parkinson's disease were studied in temporal reproduction tasks and a mutual attraction between temporal processing systems, in memory and clock stages, when dopaminergic regulation in the striatum is dysfunctional is discussed.
Duration judgements in patients with schizophrenia
TLDR
It is suggested that patients with schizophrenia are less accurate at estimating brief time periods, which may reflect dysfunction of biopsychological timing processes.
