A Consideration of Effects of Different Numbers of Seconds in Spontaneous Time Production with fMRI Analysis
Time is a fundamental property of human perception and action. Previous studies on how time perception is related to the brain have been refined over the years. Cerebral activity areas relating to time are a basal ganglia, a cerebellum, an insula, a right inferior frontal gyrus (IFG) and a right inferior parietal lobule (IPL). In our previous study, a spontaneous time production task was conducted using the fMRI measurement. As the experimental conditions, the different number of seconds (5 s and 10 s) and the different situations were set. In brain analysis results by situation conditions, significant activities were obtained in the right IPL and the right IFG. Therefore, analysis results were considered to be brain activity related to time perception. In this paper, we describe analysis results by the difference in the number of seconds.
