    Neural Bases of Timing and Time Perception provides a cutting-edge overview of the main contemporary neuroscientific methods and findings in this burgeoning field.

    Featuring an international collection of leading researchers, this text reports the main methodological tools available to address important questions in the field, what discoveries these tools led to, and what avenues remain to be explored. The book provides concise descriptions of the latest neuroscientific developments about time perception and temporal processing (for instance, how to use TMS or tDCS to study time judgments); and signposts avenues for clinicians to develop new insights for understanding pathologies (as in the case of schizophrenia, for instance) from a temporal perspective.

    The book will appeal to anyone interested in how we perceive the passing of time, whether from an academic or clinical background.

    Giovanna Mioni is Assistant Professor at the Dipartimento di Psicologia Generale, University of Padova, Italy. Her main research interests include the study of time perception and time processing in healthy and pathological aging using non-invasive brain stimulation techniques. She also investigates the effects of emotional stimuli on subjective time perception.

    Simon Grondin is Professor at École de psychologie of Université Laval, Québec. His main research fields are perception and psychophysics, psychological time, and cognitive neuroscience. He is a former editor of the Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology and a former associate editor of Attention, Perception, & Psychophysics.
