Authors

Summary

21 Non-depressed and 18 mildly depressed people made judgements of 5 durations, varying form 3.5  65 seconds. People gave 2 judgements of each duration: a verbal estimation in seconds of time interval marked by starting and ending beeps; or production of by terminating an interval started with a beep after a time specified in seconds.  There was a depressive realism effect.
