Abstract: Of critical importance to human cognition is the ability to process information received at the senses in time. Much research has been conducted in order to understand the mental processes that underpin how humans judge the order and successiveness of stimuli. The temporal order judgment (TOJ) and simultaneity judgment (SJ) tasks are the most common methods to measure our ability to discriminate temporal difference between two stimuli. However, it is unknown whether the determination of simultaneity and temporal order are underpinned by the same cognitive mechanism. To address this question, participants were required to determine the temporal order or simultaneity of pairs of visually presented stimuli. Experiment 1 found that TOJ and SJ tasks were dissociable. Specifically, participants needed less time to determine successiveness when compared with exact order. A second experiment extended these findings suggesting that the perception of simultaneity and successiveness are likely underpinned by separate mechanisms.
