Abstract (Swedish)
A three second window has long been suggested by Pöppel (2009) and others, to guide the human perception. More recently,a three second constant has been suggested in overt human behaviour (Schleidt, 1988) as well as in mammalian species in general (Gerstner & Goldberg, 1994). It is however unclear whether this temporal window exists in other vertebrate species.
This study examines the existence of a temporal constant for overt behaviours in rooks (Corvus frugilegus), and discuss the
methods for studying temporal constraints in overt behaviours. Results point to a shorter temporal window in rooks compared
to mammals. However, the mechanisms behind this temporal constraint in behaviour are still unknown and should be
considered as an... (More)
