Abstract

We propose a novel way of computing the change in size of a subjective time unit (S), based on a ratio score of produced durations, and investigate how this S-ratio changes as a function of Quadrato motor training, Vipassana meditation and a control condition of restful wakefulness, using different participants for each condition. The similar trend for both peak alpha frequency (PAF) and the S-ratio following motor training is summarized by their significant correlation of 0.57. We discuss the relationship between PAF, time production, and movement, drawing implications for the rate of functioning of an internal clock.
