Odd Ways the Mind Warps Time
Time, arguably our most precious nonrenewable resource, has a slippery nature in our minds. Sometimes it flows quickly. In other situations, it trickles at an unbearably slow pace. And, to the horror of many, it speeds as we age.
Why should something as reliable as a ticking clock be perceived with such inconsistency? Claudia Hammond, science author and broadcaster, explores this question in her new book, “Time Warped”, and presented some of her findings at the British Psychology Society Annual Conference in April, where she won the Society’s Public Engagement and Media Award.
