Typical and atypical development in spatial and temporal cognition

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The research project will concern the temporal cognition that is vital for our existence. In everyday life, accurate computations about temporal characteristics of objects are crucial in performing a variety of human actions such as speed of movement, motor control in walking, participating in sports, and playing music. Performance of many daily-life activities requires the integration of the dimensions of time and space. The search of common cognitive mechanisms for these operations as well as of common brain structures to process the where and when of stimuli is therefore a hot topic in cognitive neuroscience. Recent studies have shown that the neural mechanism that enables children to estimate time is functional as of an early age. Taking into account these evidences, it seems interesting to investigate age-related changes in time perception in children with typical or atypical development.
