BOZEMAN -- A free public lecture on psychological time will be given at noon Friday, March 2, in 204 Traphagen Hall at Montana State University.

Simon Grondin, an internationally-known expert on the psychology of time, will speak on "Psychological Time and the Internal Clock." He will review his and others' research on how people experience and estimate time, focusing on the role of a hypothetical internal clock that may underlie duration experience.

Grondin is a psychology professor at the Universite Laval in Quebec City, Canada. He has written many journal articles and book chapters on psychological time. He is editor of the "Canadian Journal of Experimental Psychology," and he is associate editor of "Perception & Psychophysics." His research is being funded by the Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada and the Social Sciences and Humanities Council of Canada.

Grondin's talk is hosted by MSU's psychology department and funded by a College of Letters and Science Research Enhancement Award.
