This chapter examines how temporal expectation can bias action and perception. It explains that the brain continuously generates predictions about expected relevant events to guide perception and action. The chapter describes how these predictions incorporate the temporal dimension to anticipate the timing of events. It also describes studies concerning the neural systems and mechanisms by temporal expectations bias perception and action and discusses the notion that temporal expectations are mediated via networks closely associated with spatial and motor control.
