Abstract

Emotional distortions to time are consistently reported in laboratory studies, however their underlying causes remain unclear. One suggestion is that emotion induced changes in attentional processes may contribute to emotional distortions to time. The current study tested this possibility by examining the relationship between eye-movement and perceptions of the duration of emotional events. Participants completed a verbal estimation task in which they estimated the duration of positively, negatively and neutrally valenced images from the International Affective Picture System images. Time to first fixation and dwell time were recorded throughout. The results showed no significant relationships between measures of eye-movement and measures of emotional distortion to time, despite the emotion manipulation successfully influencing the time before the participants first fixated on the to-be-timed stimulus. This suggests that for suprasecond intervals emotion induced changes in overt attention processing do not contribute towards emotional distortions to time.
