Neural coding: time contraction and dilation in the striatum

Curr Biol. 2015 May 4;25(9):R374-6. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2015.02.057.


How the brain encodes time is poorly understood. New research on rats provides evidence that striatal neurons encode time, and that the code can dilate or contract to time different intervals.
