Temporal structure of cognitive and sensory processing holds the key to understanding complex neural mechanisms involved in higher order brain functions like perception of time. A hypothesis of embodied cognition posits that cognitive processes are deeply rooted in the interactions with the external world (Wilson et al., 2002; Anderson et al., 2012). These interactions of the brain with the external world depend on the accurate representation of the time-dimension in neural circuits (Gupta, 2014). For example, one cannot catch a flying ball unless the timing of the movements matches the speed of the ball. Many real world situations depend on the mapping between the neural and physical representation of time, which is maintained at different hierarchical levels. Hierarchical processing, consistent with multiple time scales, is manifested during goal-driven tasks, such as interval timing, duration judgement, and movement coordination. Contributions to this Research Topic elucidate how key aspects of the time-dimension such as the temporal binding of neural events play important roles in various cognitive processes, which include perception, mental time travel, and speech production. Additionally, the multi-scale representation of such processes from the micro to meso scales—from single neurons to a population of neurons to field potentials and macroscopic scales of EEG - is, discussed.
