new paper on the brain’s representation of time

We examined individuals with focal brain damage to understand how the brain represents time – a notoriously elusive construct. Individuals with orbitofrontal cortex damage were specifically impaired in memory for temporal order. This region is commonly injured in head trauma, and our finding holds implications for understanding not only time, but also behavioral changes in those who have sustained head injuries. Paper published in Current Biology.
