There a recent dissertation that should be of interest:
The ksanabhangasiddhi-anvayatmika : an eleventh-century Buddhist work on
existence and causal theory / Jeson Woo.
xii, 280 p. ; 29 cm
The Nyaya school also has some interesting positions on the duration of a
moment. I don't have specific references at hand, but ch. 3 ("Cognition")
in K.K. Chakrabarti's _CLASSICAL INDIAN PHILOSOPHY OF MIND_ provides good
introductory material, plus a good bibliography.
