Despite the widespread general interest in the psychological and physiological aspects of the sense of time, there have been relatively few direct experimental explorations of its fundamental mechanisms in the brain. The possibility that rhythms in the electroencephalogram (EEG) of man, in particular the alpha rhythm of some 10 cycles per second, might in some way reflect fundamental timing in some way reflect fundamental timing mechanisms has occurred to a number of workers over the years. Early experimental findings that an increase in body temperature was accompanied both by an underestimation of time intervals and by an increase in the alpha rhythm was a more accurate measure of time intervals than were the subjects own estimates, lent support to such a notion.
