Temporal information processing is a fundamental brain function, which might include central timekeeping mechanisms independent of sensory modality. Psychopharmacological and patient studies suggest a crucial role of the basal ganglia in time estimation. In this study, functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) was applied in 15 healthy right-handed male subjects performing an auditory time estimation task (duration discrimination of tone pairs in the range of 1,000–1,400 ms) and frequency… CONTINUE READING
