A prominent finding in psychophysical experiments on time perception is Weber's law, the linear scaling of timing errors with duration. The ability to reproduce this scaling has been taken as a criterion for the validity of neurocomputational models of time perception. However, the origin of Weber's law remains unknown, and currently only a few models generi- cally reproduce it. Here, we use an information-theoretical framework that considers the neuronal mechanisms of time perception as… CONTINUE READING
