Synced brains: how to bond with your kids – according to neuroscience

Many people across the world are still living under tough restrictions or lockdowns because of the pandemic, staying home as much as possible. This means that a lot of parents are spending more time than ever with their children. But … Continue reading

Interazione sociale e sincronizzazione corticale: cervelli sulla stessa lunghezza d’onda

E’ stato recentemente indagato se e come avvenga la sincronizzazione corticale tra i cervelli di due o più persone impegnate in un’interazione sociale. Con l’avvento di nuove tecniche, si è potuto indagare se durante un’interazione sociale, a seguito di una … Continue reading

Inter-brain synchrony and cooperation context in interactive decision making

People engaged in interactive decision making rely on prior decision behaviors by other persons to make new choices and they exhibit inter-brain synchrony between each other. The functional meanings of such inter-brain synchrony, however, remains obscure. In the present study, … Continue reading

What does the interactive brain hypothesis mean for social neuroscience?

A recent framework inspired by phenomenological philosophy, dynamical systems theory, embodied cognition and robotics has proposed the interactive brain hypothesis (IBH). Whereas mainstream social neuroscience views social cognition as arising solely from events in the brain, the IBH argues that … Continue reading

Coordination Elicits Synchronous Brain Activity Between Co-actors

People could behave in two different ways when engaging in interpersonal coordination activities: moving at the same frequency (isofrequency pattern, IP; the movement frequency ratio is 1:1) or at different frequencies (multifrequency pattern, MP; the movement frequency ratio is non … Continue reading

Intra- and Inter-Brain Synchronization during Musical Improvisation on the Guitar

Humans interact with the environment through sensory and motor acts. Some of these interactions require synchronization among two or more individuals. Multiple-trial designs, which we have used in past work to study interbrain synchronization in the course of joint action, … Continue reading

What binds us? Inter-brain neural synchronization and its implications for theories of human consciousness

The association between neural oscillations and functional integration is widely recognized in the study of human cognition. Large-scale synchronization of neural activity has also been proposed as the neural basis of consciousness. Intriguingly, a growing number of studies in social … Continue reading

Brain-to-brain synchronization across two persons predicts mutual prosociality

People tend to be more prosocial after synchronizing behaviors with others, yet the underlying neural mechanisms are rarely known. In this study, participant dyads performed either a coordination task or an independence task, with their brain activations recorded via the … Continue reading

Inter-Brain Synchronization during Social Interaction

During social interaction, both participants are continuously active, each modifying their own actions in response to the continuously changing actions of the partner. This continuous mutual adaptation results in interactional synchrony to which both members contribute. Freely exchanging the role … Continue reading

On the Same Wavelength: Face-to-Face Communication Increases Interpersonal Neural Synchronization

Understanding neural mechanisms of social interaction is important for understanding human social nature and for developing treatments for social deficits related to disorders such as autism. However, conventional cognitive and behavioral neuroscience has concentrated on developing novel experimental paradigms and investigating human–computer interactions, rather than studying interpersonal interaction per … Continue reading
