Developmental Changes in Human Duration Judgments: A Meta-Analytic Review.
Block, Richard A.; Zakay, Dan; Hancock, Peter A.
Developmental Review, v19 n1 p183-211 Mar 1999
Conducted meta-analysis of experiments comparing duration judgments of children, adolescents, and adults. Found that children made larger verbal estimates, comparable productions, shorter reproductions of durations, and more variable judgments than did older participants. Concluded that explanations are needed for children's inaccurately learned verbal labels and impatience during relatively empty durations, and that both can be interpreted using an attentional-gate model.
