Date: 
Thursday, November 7, 2013 - 11:00am
Program: 

Every year the summers seem to go by faster and faster. We seem to be careening through life. Yet at other times, like waiting in line at the Registry or listening to a boring lecture, time slows to a crawl. Is the experience of time actively created in our own mind? Tune in tonight to Inquiry for a enlightening talk about our perception of time and what affects it when we speak with CLAUDIA HAMMOND, writer, broadcaster and psychology lecturer. Her new endlessly fascinating book is titled TIME WARPED: UNLOCKING THE MYSTERIES OF TIME PERCEPTION
