Synchrony, Coupling and Complementarity in Social Interaction
Andreas Roepstorff, Interacting Minds Centre, Aarhus University
For a long time, theories of social cognition were mainly concerned with 'the problem of other minds'. However, a recent move to study various forms of joint action has shifted to focus from representationist accounts of other people (i.e. what are the intentions) to more interactionalist accounts (how do people couple, as interactions unfold). In my talk, I will review a set of experiments from our research group to discuss forms of coupling in social interaction at behavioral, physiological and linguistic levels.
All are welcome.
