This chapter examines reversals in subjective temporal order due to arm crossing in order to determine whether and where the hypothetical decision mechanism is located and how it orders sensory signals in time. It discusses the results of previous relevant studies which suggest that the brain achieves an integrated representation of space across sensory modalities at the cost of continuous flow of time in the brain. The discontinuity or temporal reversal may cause little trouble as long as it occurs during the short perisaccadic period in processing visual and tactile signals, but it would cause a more serious problem if it occured in the auditory domain.

Keywords:   hypothetical decision, temporal order, arm crossing, sensory signals, brain, sensory modalities, visual signals, tactile signals, auditory domain
