Several findings from duration perception literature suggest that when making decisions about time, participants rely on an internal reference memory for time rather than merely on the current physical stimuli. According to a recent account, such an internal reference is formed by a continuous dynamic updating process that integrates duration information from previous trials and the current trial. In the present work, I show how such a dynamic mechanism can account for various psychophysical phenomena including the classical yet unresolved Vierordt effect.
