Conference Reports from London 1999

John Wearden reports on two symposia.
The conference theme of ‘The psychology of time’ was amply served by three linked symposia, ‘Models of timing’, ‘Time and the brain’ and ‘Applied and developmental studies of timing’, which between them included invited speakers from the UK, France, Belgium, Germany and Switzerland, as well as the US and Israel. Together the participants probably represented the greatest concentration of expertise on the subject ever assembled in this country. A report on the third symposium has already been published in last month’s issue of The Psychologist. Here, I report on the first two, which, while covering a range of topics, often examined the same questions.
