Abstract/Results:
ABSTRACT
BACKGROUND
Emotional distortions to time are hypothesized to occur because of changes in physiological arousal. Increases in sympathetic nervous system (SNS) reactivity are associated with a lengthening of perceived duration whereas increases in parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) reactivity are associated with a shortening of perceived.
AIM
To examine the autonomic mechanisms underlying the impact of stressors on time perception and timed behaviour. To examine stress-induced increases in SNS activity lead to an overestimation of time and that increased PSNS activity attenuates this effect.
METHOD
Five experiments were conducted. SNS activity was increased through stress induction using emotional images or white noise. PSNS activity was increased using a controlled breathing exercise. SNS activity was indexed using Pre-ejection Period (PEP) and skin conductance level. PSNS activity was indexed using High-frequency heart rate variability (HF-HRV). Time perception was assessed using a verbal estimation task, timed behavior was assessed using a rhythm production task.
RESULTS
Across multiple experiments, stress induced increases in SNS reactivity were negatively correlated with perceived duration on time perception tasks, but only when the stimuli were highly arousing and negatively valenced. Increasing PSNS activity reduced perceived duration on time perception tasks. SNS and PSNS activity was unrelated to timed behavior.
CONCLUSIONS
Emotional distortions to time appear to result from a combination of bottom up (SNS activity) and top down (threat-detection) processes. Increasing PSNS activity offers a mechanism to reduce the perceived duration of negative events and improve wellbeing.

The relationship between physiological arousal and perceived duration: the effect of stimulus valence
Publication year: 2018

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Theoretical models of emotional distortion of duration processing suggest that distortions to time result from changes in physiological arousal (Craig, 2002; Gil & Droit-Volet, 2012). It is hypothesised that increases in arousal lengthen perceived duration and decreases in arousal shorten perceived duration. We tested this hypothesis by measuring sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) activity during a verbal estimation task in which participants judged the duration of high and low arousal positive, negative and neutrally valenced IAPS images. SNS and PSNS activity were indexed by measuring Pre-Ejection Period (PEP) and High Frequency Heart-rate Variability (HF-HRV) respectively. SNS reactivity was predicative of perceived duration, but only for high arousal negatively valenced stimuli with decreases in PEP being associated with longer duration estimates. SNS and PSNS activity was not predictive of perceived duration for the low arousal
negative stimuli or the low and high arousal positive stimuli. The findings suggest a complex relationship between physiological arousal and perceived duration which is not accurately explained by current theoretical models of emotional distortions to time perception.

Publication year: 2019

https://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0216704
Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT
Theoretical models of time perception suggest a simple bottom-up relationship between physiological arousal and perceived duration. Increases in physiological arousal lengthen the perceived duration of events whereas decreases in physiological arousal reduce them. Whilst this relationship has been demonstrated for highly arousing negatively valenced stimuli, it has not been demonstrated for other classes of distorting stimuli (e.g. positively valenced or low arousal stimuli). The current study tested the effect of valence (positive and negative) and arousal level (high and low) on the relationship between physiological arousal and perceived duration. Sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and parasympathetic nervous system (PSNS) activity was measured during a verbal estimation task in which participants judged the duration of high and low arousal, positive, negative and neutrally valenced IAPS images. SNS and PSNS activity were indexed by measuring Pre-Ejection Period (PEP) and High Frequency Heart-rate Variability (HF-HRV) respectively. SNS reactivity was predicative of perceived duration, but only for high arousal negatively valenced stimuli, with decreases in PEP being associated with longer duration estimates. SNS and PSNS activity was not predictive of perceived duration for the low arousal negative stimuli or the low and high arousal positive stimuli. We therefore propose a new model suggesting that emotional distortions to time result from a combination of bottom-up (physiological arousal) and top-down (threat detection) factors.

The effect of increased parasympathetic activity on perceived duration
Publication year: 2019

Abstract/Results: ABSTRACT:
Theories of human temporal perception suggest that changes in physiological arousal distort the perceived duration of events. Behavioural manipulations of sympathetic nervous system (SNS) activity support this suggestion, however the effects of behavioural manipulations of parasympathetic (PSNS) activity on time perception are unclear. The current study examined the effect of a paced respiration exercise known to increase PSNS activity on sub-second duration estimates. Participants estimated the duration of negatively and neutrally valenced images following a period of normal and paced breathing. PSNS and SNS activity were indexed by high-frequency heart-rate variability and pre-ejection period respectively. Paced breathing increased PSNS activity and reduced the perceived duration of the negative and neutrally valenced stimuli relative to normal breathing. The results show that manipulations of PSNS activity can distort time in the absence of a change in SNS activity. They also suggest that activities which increase PSNS activity may be effective in reducing the perceived duration of short events.
