Interpersonal Neural Synchrony During Father–Child Problem Solving

Interpersonal neural synchrony (INS) has been previously evidenced in mother–child interactions, yet findings concerning father–child interaction are wanting. The current experiment examined whether fathers and their 5‐ to 6‐year‐old children (N = 66) synchronize their brain activity during a naturalistic … Continue reading

Human Attachments Shape Interbrain Synchrony toward Efficient Performance of Social Goals

The human brain has undergone massive expansion across primate evolution through life amidst multi-layered social attachments; within families, among friends, and between clan members and this enabled humans to coordinate their brains with those of others toward the execution of … 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

Synchronization between instructor and observer when learning a complex skill

While learning from an instructor by watching a ‘how-to’ video has become common practice, we know surprisingly little about the relation between brain activities in instructor and observers. In this fMRI study we investigated the temporal synchronization between instructor and … 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

Physiological and Behavioral Synchrony Predict Group Cohesion and Performance

Interpersonal synchrony contributes to social functioning in dyads, but it remains unknown how synchrony shapes group experiences and performance. To this end, we designed a novel group drumming task in which participants matched their drumming to either predictable or unpredictable … Continue reading

Beyond Synchrony: Joint Action in a Complex Production Task Reveals Beneficial Effects of Decreased Interpersonal Synchrony

A variety of joint action studies show that people tend to fall into synchronous behavior with others participating in the same task, and that such synchronization is beneficial, leading to greater rapport, satisfaction, and performance. It has been noted that … Continue reading
