Abstract : A method of scaling in infrahuman species, which consists of introducing additional cue values on a dimension for which a conditional discrimination has been established, was described. This was illustrated with preliminary data on time perception in monkeys. A scaled function for auditory time, the Indifference Point, and the j.n.d. were obtained. (Author)
