The number of models characterizing temporal information processing, from estimation and production of brief durations up to complex symbolizations and representations of time, have increased dramatically in recent years. What emerges as well is that many hypotheses put forward to account for motor behavior, attention and memory assign a crucial explanatory role to temporal parameters. This volume, based on a NATO Advanced Research Workshop held in France in October 1991, enhances the theoretical ties between fields. It brings together international specialists who offer both experimental evidence and theoretical views on complementary topics. Time, Action and Cognition thus helps to identify common themes and critical issues in motor timing, perception, estimation and representation of time. It places special emphasis on temporal mechanisms, and traces connecting pathways between early temporal regulations of action and sophisticated adult concepts of time. In opening the way to a more unified approach, it defines new directions for future research.
