News round up.. April 2021
Hello to all our readers, just a quick post to update on what has been happening since our last update in January. Obviously a lot of time has been taken up with lecture recording and moving testing to online. In fact the online testing although not suitable for every experiment is proving to be a very efficient and powerful way of collecting data, and so far the data seems to be just as orderly...or disorderly!
On the paper front the first of several that we have 'in press' has been published. We have an article in Timing and Time Perception on the the judgements of auditory and visual stimuli. In this paper we review the overall state of play of studies in this area, and draw some conclusions about which of the widely reported effects seem to be consistent and which do not. (Wearden, J. H., & Jones, L. A. (2021). Judgements of the Duration of Auditory and Visual Stimuli. Timing & Time Perception, 9(2), 199-224.)
I (Luke Jones) gave an interview to the BBC on time in lockdown which was broadcast as part of the 'Unusual Times' podcast. You can listen to the episode here.
Lastly our lab's 3rd year students have conducted a facinating experiment comparing the timing of visual and auditory stimuli in both retrospective and prospective timing conditions. This is a highly novel experiment and the data are looking interesting so watch this space!
That's all for now, hope you are all keeping safe.
I wanted to express my gratitude for your insightful and engaging article.

Your article has provided me with a fresh perspective on the subject matter and has inspired me to think more deeply about this topic.
