The representation of temporal information can be examined from both a neurological and a computational perspective. Recent evidence suggests that two subcortical structures, the cerebellum and basal ganglia, play a critical role in the timing of both movement and perception. At a computational level, models of an internal clock have been developed in which timing is based on either endogenous oscillatory processes or distributed interval-based representations derived from relatively slow physiological processes.
