Destruction or removal of the cilia in the striatum impairs time perception and judgment, new research suggests. The findings could have implications for a range of diseases including schizophrenia, ASD, and Parkinson's.
For children, the run-up to Christmas seems to take forever, but for adults, time appears to fly as the Holiday season approaches. Researchers say this is because our perception of time alters as we age.
Many people report their perception of time felt distorted during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, including problems in tracking the day of the week or feeling as though time was passing slower. Researchers say this temporal disintegration was, in part, associated with pandemic related stressors.
A new study reveals how the COVID-19 pandemic changed the perception of time for many people. Researchers say people felt time passed more slowly during COVID lockdowns. This "time expansion" was associated with increased feelings of loneliness and a lack of positive experience during the early parts of the COVID pandemic.
The repetitive nature of days we faced during the COVID-19 lockdowns may have made our memories and time perception murky. Researchers report on how COVID-19 has impacted our memory, causing a pandemic memory fog.
During an upcoming symposium, researchers will discuss the neurobiology of time perception, how emotion shapes our perception of time, and the role of memory in anticipation.
Many people reported they felt like time was passing differently during the initial COVID-19 lockdowns. Researchers explore how the pandemic has contributed to the feeling of time distortion.
Virtual reality can help recalibrate time perception and sensorimotor actions. Researchers believe the technology could help in the treatment of ASD, Parkinson's disease and schizophrenia.
A new study reports those who microdose psychedelics report improvements in attention and mental health. However, a number of people report an increase in neuroticism following six weeks of microdosing.
