An experiment investigated the potential effects of lowering arousal on performance on time perception tasks. Four participant groups received different tasks: Normal and episodic temporal generalization, bisection, and verbal estimation, all involving judgements of the duration of visual stimuli. Self-rated arousal during the experimental session was lowered by spacing experimental trials approximately 10 s apart. Between the early and late blocks of the experiment, performance changed on… CONTINUE READING
