Time for What? Breaking Down Temporal Anticipation

Nir Shalev, Anna C. Nobre, Freek van Ede

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


A variety of environmental regularities enable us to anticipate the timing of upcoming sensations and actions. A recent article (Breska and Ivry, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U. S. A. 2018;115:12283–12288) reports a striking neural double dissociation between two distinct varieties of temporal anticipation. Looking forward, we consider further dissociations according to the goals for which temporal anticipation is used.
