Interpersonal Neural Synchronization During Basketball

Link – Interpersonal Neural Synchronization During Cooperative Behavior of Basketball Players: A fNIRS-Based Hyperscanning Study. Abstract Accumulating evidence has consistently shown that team-based sports (such as basketball) are beneficial to interpersonal cooperation. However, its neural correlate remains to be discovered, especially in the perspective of two-person neuroscience. In this study, 12 dyads of basketball players […]

An fNIRS-based hyperscanning study.

Link – Different strategies, distinguished cooperation efficiency, and brain synchronization for couples: An fNIRS-based hyperscanning study. Abstract INTRODUCTION: Individuals may employ different strategies when cooperating with others. For example, when two participants are asked to press buttons simultaneously, they may press the buttons as quickly as possible (immediate response strategy) or press them in a […]

Brain and motor synchrony in children and adolescents with ASD

Link – Brain and motor synchrony in children and adolescents with ASD- an fNIRS hyperscanning study. Abstract Brain-to-brain synchrony has been proposed as an important mechanism underlying social interaction. While first findings indicate that it may be modulated in children with ASD, no study to date has investigated the influence of different interaction partners and […]

Neural synchrony in mother-child conversation with fNIRS

Link – Neural synchrony in mother-child conversation: Exploring the role of conversation patterns. Abstract Conversations are an essential form of communication in daily family life. Specific patterns of caregiver-child conversations have been linked to children’s socio-cognitive development and child relationship quality beyond the immediate family environment. Recently, interpersonal neural synchronization has been proposed as a […]

Brain synchronization compensates for sleep deprivation

Link – Interpersonal brain synchronization with instructor compensates for learner’s sleep deprivation in interactive learning. Abstract Recent advances shifted the focus on single-brain functioning toward two-brain communication during learning interactions, following the demonstration that interpersonal brain synchronization (IBS) can track instructor-learner information exchange. Here, we investigated (i) whether sleep deprivation (SD) that potentially impacts both […]

Hyperscanning and Brain Connectivity in Human Interaction

Link – Affective, Social, and Informative Gestures Reproduction in Human Interaction: Hyperscanning and Brain Connectivity. Abstract Gestural communication characterizes daily individuals’ interactions in order to share information and to modify others’ behavior. Social neuroscience has investigated the neural bases which support recognizing of different gestures. The present research, through the use of the hyperscanning approach, […]

Presence of spouse enhances brain-to-brain synchrony

Link – Physical presence of spouse enhances brain-to-brain synchrony in co-parenting couples. Abstract Co-parenting spouses who live together remain in close physical proximity to each other and regularly engage in reciprocal social interactions in joint endeavors to coordinate their caregiving. Although bi-parental rearing is a common occurrence in humans, the influence of the physical presence […]

Gender affects the interaction during group creative idea generation.

Link – Gender of partner affects the interaction pattern during group creative idea generation. Abstract This study aimed to determine how gender composition affects the group creative process. Participants were recruited into dyads with different gender compositions (female-male dyad, F-M; female-female, F-F; male-male, and M-M) to solve two problems. One problem demanded creativity alternative use […]

The “gift effect” on functional brain connectivity

Link – The “gift effect” on functional brain connectivity. Inter-brain synchronization when prosocial behavior is in action. Abstract The gift exchange represents a moment that characterizes interpersonal interactions. In particular, research in psychological and neuroscientific fields aimed to observe the social function of gift exchange. Specifically, the present study aimed to investigate the effects of […]

Optimization of wavelet coherence analysis in fNIRS

Link – Optimization of wavelet coherence analysis as a measure of neural synchrony during hyperscanning using functional near-infrared spectroscopy. Abstract Significance: The expanding field of human social interaction is enabled by functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) that acquires hemodynamic signals during live two-person interactions. These advances call for development of methods to quantify interactive processes. Aim: […]
