Time Perception and Emotion: A Systematic Review

Volume 22 Num. 3 - October 2022 - Pages 245-263


Beatriz Harana Lahera


Since the beginning of experimental studies in psychology, there has been a keen interest in analyzing the factors that distort our perception of time as human beings. The manipulation of emotional or/and motivational states has been critical to understanding how an individual’s perception of time changes. However, experimental studies to date have been highly diverse in both their procedures and the instruments used to measure such perceptions. This paper proposes a systematic review of the topic in question. The main aim of this work is to describe and compare different experimental studies conducted with adults. After rigorous selection of search terms to introduce in each database, inclusion criteria were applied while some articles were added through citation search. A total of 17 articles with 26 experimental studies were analyzed. The results were discussed, and further research should be advanced.
