    Abstract

    An accurate mental representation of the world is crucial in order to make good decisions in everyday life. Besides knowing *what* is happening around us, it's just as important to know *when* things are happening. For example, an athlete preparing for the start of a race ("ready... set... go!") will make use of earlier experiences with the "set... go!" interval to make sure the first movement happens as quick as possible. This accurate representation of, for example, this "set... go!" interval is formed through processes in the brain that are not yet fully understood. We tend to investigate them in artificial laboratory environment that don't always generalize to behavior in the "real world". In this dissertation I investigate time perception and bridge the gap between knowledge accumulated in the lab, and knowledge accumulated in ecologically valid settings.
