Athletes and musicians demonstrate the levels to which humans can ascend in the timing of behaviour. But even common actions, such as opening a door or bringing a cup to one's lips, reveal how we organize our behaviour temporally. When there is damage to the nervous system and the ability to time behaviour breaks down, we become aware of how many things must go right for timing t to go terribly wrong. In the 1990s, there has been a considerable growth of interest among cognitive and brain scientists in the timing aspects of human behaviour. This volume presents research on the production, perception, and memory of timed events. Empirical chapters discuss a variety of tasks ranging from locomotion to finger-tapping. Theoretical chapters provide quantative models for topics as diverse as eyeblink conditioning and posture during wlaking. Other chapters discuss the neuroanatomical bases of timing behaviour.
