Research interests: The way in which humans judge the duration of events. This includes, the influence of emotion on temporal perception, the role of working memory in temporal perception and the relationships between different forms of magnitude judgement.
Dr Ogden’s PhD examined the role of long-term memory in human temporal perception, with a focus on modality differences in representation. Following this Dr. Ogden has explored the way in which durational information is stored in short-term and working memory. Her PhD student, Michael Samuels, is currently expanding this work to examine whether the processing of different types of magnitude (e.g. duration, length and numerosity) load onto the same “general” cognitive resources. In addition to purely cognitive research, Ruth’s work has also explored how emotion and preference influence our experience of time in the laboratory and in the real world.
