Available Test Forms
Duration Discrimination Task
The duration discrimination task as described in Whitman et al (2007).
Paced Motor Timing Task
A time estimation task in which participants synchronize responses with a steady series of beeps as described in Wittman et al (2007).
Prospective Time Estimation Task
The single trial in which the respondent estimates the interval (in seconds) between the onset of two stimul as descripted in Whitman et al (2007).
Temporal Reproduction Task
Respondents hear a tone play for a given duration, and then interrupt a second tone when they think it has played for the same duration as described in Whitman et al (2007).
Time Wall Estimation Task
A time estimation task in which participants estimate when an occluded, moving object reaches a target point as described in Englund et al (1987)
