The first minute of a roller coaster ride and the ninety-seventh minute in line at the DMV don't seem to pass at quite the same rate. While our watchers show time ticking forward at a uniform pace, the experience of time is anything but. Time is relative--not just in an Einsteinian way--but because the brain colors and shades the passage of time. Through an interdisciplinary discussion among some of the worlds leading researchers, explore the human experience of time, including the fascinating relationship between memory and reality, and the chemical and electrical impulses of the brain that drive the experience.
