Abstract

Previous research has shown that salient stimuli can impact our time perception either by affecting our arousal or attention. Furthermore, concurrent nontemporal tasks can cause interference in our perception of time. In this study, participants performed a time bisection task with Facebook, Internet, or Neutral stimuli in conjunction with a 1-Back or a 2-Back task. Findings suggest that the memory task and the salient stimuli had independent effects on time perception. The 2-Back task (compared to 1-Back task) produced an overestimation of time and worst discriminability whereas the salient (facebook and internet related) stimuli (compared to neutral stimuli) produced an overestimation but better discriminability of time.
