Session II: Human Recognition and Memory Processing on Different Time Scales

Ralf Rummer (University of Erfurt): Visuo-spatial working memory and the retention of letters and written text: An applied cognitive perspective

Maria Klatte and Thomas Lachmann (University of Kaiserslautern): Cross-modal interference in working memory due to task-irrelevant sounds: one, some, or many mechanisms?

Axel Mecklinger (Saarland University): When long-term memory meets working memory: electrophysiological insights

Thomas Schmidt (University of Kaiserslautern): Speeded responses as indicators of feedforward processing

Mark Greenlee (University of Regensburg): Visual-vestibular integration of self-motion cues in
the human posterior insular cortex

Peter van der Helm (University of Leuven): The perceptual origin of the golden ratio

Stephen Link (University of California, San Diego): Measuring the epoch time quantum

Mark Elliott (National University of Ireland, Galway): Timing universals in dynamic systems: they are necessary and they can be measured. But what are relations between dynamics and quantum?

Dirk Vorberg (University of Muenster): Discrimination of brief durations: quantal or continuous mechanisms?

Anne Giersch (Inserm, Strasbourg): How fundamental issues in timing translate to clinical situtations

Closing Session

Hans Buffart (University of Groningen): Cognition: focus, memory, quanta and all that
