Functional and Neural Mechanisms of Interval Timing

Front Cover
Warren H. Meck
CRC Press, Mar 24, 2003 - Medical - 600 pages
Understanding temporal integration by the brain is expected to be among the premier topics to unite systems, cellular, computational, and cognitive neuroscience over the next decade. The phenomenon has been studied in humans and animals, yet until now, there has been no publication to successfully bring together the latest information gathered from
