ABSTRACT The current model of the Episodic Temporal Generalization task, where subjects have to judge whether pairs of auditory stimuli are equal in duration, predicts that results are scale-free and unaffected by the presentation order of the stimuli. To test these predictions, we conducted three experiments assessing sub- and supra-second standards and taking presentation order into account. Proportions were spaced linearly in Experiments 1 and 2 and logarithmically in Experiment 3. Critically, we found effects of duration range and presentation order with both spacing schemes. Our results constitute the first report of presentation order effects in the Episodic Temporal Generalization task and demonstrate that future studies should always consider duration range, number of trials and presentation order as crucial factors modulating performance.
RESUMEN  A través de tres experimentos demostramos efectos de orden de presentación y rangos de duración que contradicen las predicciones del modelo hasta ahora propuesto para la tarea. Además mostramos y discutimos varios factores que futuros estudios que empleen la tarea deberán tener en consideración.
