This commentary is designed to provide an analysis of issues pertinent to the investigation of the effects of the temporary cessation of breathing (apnea), particularly during water immersion or diving, and its effects on time estimation in general and the timing of motor representation in particular. In addition, this analysis provides alternative explanations of certain unexpected findings reported by Di Rienzo et al. (2014) pertaining to apnea and interval timing. The perspective and guidance that this commentary provides on the relationship between apnea and time estimation is especially relevant considering the scarcity of experimental and clinical studies examining these variables.
