    Purpose: The EVOCAV trial aimed to quantify the paradoxal atrioventricular (AV) conduction time lengthening in sinus node (SD) patients (pts) paced in AAIR-based pacing mode. Methods: SD pts, implanted with dual-chamber pacemaker programmed in AAIR-based pacing mode, were randomized in two arms...

    According to popular models of human time perception, variations in prospective timing are caused by two factors: the pulse rate of an internal pacemaker and the amount of attention directed to the passage of time. The results concerning the effect of attention on subjective timing have been...
