Abstract

Previous research provides some preliminary evidence to link the temporal binding window, the time frame within which multisensory information from different sensory modalities is integrated, and time perception. In addition, alpha peak frequency has been proposed to be the neural mechanism for both processes. However, these links are not well established. Hence, the aim of the current study was to explore to what degree, if any, time perception, the temporal binding window and the alpha peak frequency are related. It was predicted that as the width of the temporal binding window increases the size of the filled duration illusion increases and the alpha peak frequency decreases. We observed a significant relationship between the temporal binding window and peak alpha frequency. However, time perception was not linked with either of these. These findings are discussed with respect to the possible underlying mechanisms of multisensory integration and time perception.
