It Takes Two to Tango: Kinematics of Social Interactions

It Takes Two to Tango: Kinematics of Social Interactions

This research line investigates the neuro-cognitive bases of the ability to coordinate with others during joint actions, and how socio-emotional variables (e.g. racial stereotypes or a negative interpersonal relationship) modulate this capacity.

Research is carried out thanks to Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and kinematics recording in healthy participants (Sacheli et al. 2012, 2013).

Moreover, this paradigm is currently being used to explore whether being involved in motor interactions facilitates action planning in brain lesioned individuals with motor impairments, and whether joint action performance is impaired in individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
