I'd be very interested. You could check out O'Keefe, who (I seem to remember) talks about a 'clock' mechanism based on synchronous neural firings, though he does so in order to discuss spatial perception, rather than temporal perception. Sorry, I don't have the reference here, but he had a paper in a publication by Eilan, McCarthy and Brewer; something like "Spatial Representation". regards ppl ----- Original Message ----- From: "O.T.Furnes" <oddtf(at)> To: <AUDITORY(at)LISTS.MCGILL.CA> Sent: 22 December 2000 08:15 Subject: periodicity Dear list, Could anyone recommend litterature/research about the cognitive "measurement of time"? - Are there any unambiguous findings that proclaim an abstract sub-division of time in order to predict the temporal placement of an upcoming event? In other words, are there indications of a subconscious metrical grid that any sound event is analyzed by?
