The data on the dynamics of the experience of time in conditions of relative deprivation are presented. Research hypothesis suggested that the subjective experience of time flow undergoes regular changes in the process of adaptation to the unusual conditions of life, in particular to a significant decrease in everyday space. We found invariant dynamics of subjective characteristics of experiences over time in relation to changes in the functional state of the central nervous system. We defined the transient nature of time representations and their relation to changes in the functional state of participants.
Keywords: mental adaptation, experience of time, time value, deprivation.
