The fundamental ability to gauge the temporal nature of both unimodal and multisensory events is crucial to our survival. It remains to be elucidated whether timing judgements are mediated by a central timing mechanism or whether each individual sense holds a dedicated timing resource facility. Using standard psychophysical techniques, particularly rate perception and sensory adaptation experiments, we aim to disentangle the current paucity of information in regards to human sensory timing judgements.
