The world around us is constantly changing. Consequently, the perception of our environment is shaped by the properties of these temporal changes. This PhD examined how perception is influenced by these temporal dynamics. On the one hand, temporal information directs our attention to events occurring at specific moments in time. On the other hand, temporal information determines the quality of our percept, directly influencing the content of our perception. We show that specific brain patterns can track temporal properties, thereby flexibly coding the dynamics of our environment.
