Temporal processing is traditionally dissociated from spatial vision. Recent evidence, however, has shown that adaptation to high temporal frequency (D. Burr, A.Tozzi, & M. C. Morrone, 2007; A. Johnston, D. H. Arnold, & S. Nishida, 2006; A. Johnston et al., 2008) induces spatially specific reductions in the apparent duration of subsecond intervals containing medium frequency drift or flicker. Here we examine the spatial tuning of these temporal adaptation effects. Our results show that duration compression is tightly tuned to the spatial location of the adaptor and can be induced by very narrow adaptors. We also demonstrate that the effects of adaptation on perceived duration are dissociable from those on apparent temporal frequency, which suggests early but separate influences of temporal frequency adaptation on time and speed perception.
