Abstract :

Five experiments revealed that the time perception of a single empty interval versus that of (mean) empty intervals in an auditory sequence depends on the task demands and contextual information. In two of these experiments, for instance, the empty interval (140 ms) was perceived as longer than the same physical inter-stimulus interval in a sound sequence.
