The role of subjective temporal experience in decision making  Eve Atchariya Isham (Psychology, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ )   PL8

Consciousness is a subjective experience whose role has been controversial. In the current presentation, I will discuss the subjective experience of time and how it is integrated into the role of consciousness. In a series of decision making experiments, the perceived timing of decision is examined in various contexts, ranging from simple motor decision to move to more complex moral decisions. From these experiments, I will discuss the theoretical concept of how this subjective experience of time may play a role in subsequent actions or thoughts. Importantly, the results will be used to establish a connection to the role of consciousness.
