Studying intra- and inter-brain neural synchrony during naturalistic face-to-face communication

Thursday 3 November 2022
LACG Meetings
Cleveringaplaats 1
2311 BD Leiden


Inter-brain neural synchrony has been observed during several cognitive tasks, such as joint attention, speech interactions and cooperative tasks, suggesting that neural alignment between individuals is an important feature of social interactions. Nonetheless, it is still unknown whether intra- and inter-brain synchrony are necessary and/or beneficial for successful face-to-face communication. 

In this talk, I will present my research project focusing on the role of neural synchrony, within and between conversational partners, and episodes of successful and unsuccessful communication during multimodal interactions. In particular, I will introduce the use of a cutting-edge technique, dual-EEG, for the study of communication under more naturalistic settings. I will discuss previous literature and the relevance of the present study, before focusing on our hypotheses and methods and showing some preliminary results.
