How Does The Brain Perceive Time?
"One widely held theory suggests that a single brain region acts as a centralised timekeeper - possibly in the basal ganglia or cerebellum. However, a study now suggests that timekeeping is decentralised, with different circuits having their own timing mechanisms for each specific activity. The finding could help explain why certain brain conditions affect our sense of timing." New Scientist 10/30/12
