Several studies of the research group address bio-behavioral synchrony during social interactions, with a main focus on parent-child dyads. We investigate which factors influence synchrony, e.g. characteristics of the interaction and relationship between child and caregiver. Moreover, implications of interpersonal synchronization are examined, such as cooperation and social learning.
