Interpersonal Synchrony in Development

This project aims to explore the development of synchronous motion and arousal, and how it relates to other aspects of development. We focus in particular on social-cognitive correlates, such as empathy and interpersonal interaction. We use a variety of research methods from eye tracking and pupillometry to behavioral tasks.
