How do we perceive time -- and how does that contrast what time really is? Neurologist Lila Davachi addresses the line between objective and subjective time, exposing how our internal worlds modulate our experiences in collaboration with the external world which construct the unique realities each of us exist in. This talk answers elusive questions like: What makes a day feel like it is going on forever? Why don’t the good times last? TEDArchive presents previously unpublished talks from TED conferences. Enjoy this unedited talk by Lila Davachi. Filmed at TEDWomen 2016. NOTE: Comments are disabled on this video. We made this difficult decision for the TED Archive because we believe that a well-moderated conversation allows for better commentary from more people and more viewpoints. Studies show that aggressive and hateful comments silence other commenters and drive them away; unfortunately, YouTube's comment moderation tools are simply not up to the task of allowing us to monitor comments on so many videos at once. (We'd love to see this change, YouTube.) So for now, if you'd like to comment on this talk, please use Facebook, Twitter or G+ to discuss with your networks.
