This paper, for the first time, analyzed the brain-to-brain synchronization using information theory 231 and by considering the human voice, and therefore, is more advanced compared to the works that only 232 analyzed brains' coupling. (B) The prosociality (e.g. M. , Kiguchi M., Atsumori H., Sato H., Kubota K., Koizumi H. (, Grinsted There are at least two possible theories accounting for the prosocial effect of interpersonal synchrony. (, Cirelli (, Masten Synchronization can be defined as the change in rhythmic activity induced by interaction of an oscillator with another oscillating system (e.g., two oscillators, or an oscillator and external periodic stimulation). We used a dual brain stimulation protocol entailing the trans-cranial delivery of synchronized electric currents in two individuals simultaneously. In observing social exclusion, the brain activities at the medial prefrontal cortex and anterior insula were related to the following helping/comforting inclination (Masten et al., 2011). The intuitionistic information would help participants recognize their mutual rhythmic synchronization and adjust their counting speed accordingly. Results of subjective measures. L.K. When you exude the energy of positive emotions such as joy, serenity and enthusiasm in the presence of your friend, she will pick up your emotional vibes and shortly after, her own emotional and mental states will be … This study reveals the relevance of brain-to-brain synchronization among individuals with subsequent mutual prosocial inclination and suggests the neural mechanism associating with shared cognition for the facilitation of interpersonal synchrony on prosociality. It consisted of a, participant #2 respectively.

S. A 3 × 5 probe patch was placed on the participant’s prefrontal cortex (Figure 1C). The mediation effect. Written informed consent was obtained from each participant prior to the experiment. The human brain has undergone massive expansion across primate evolution through life amidst multi-layered social attachments; within families, among friends, and between clan members and this enabled humans to coordinate their brains with those of others toward the execution of complex social goals. (, Koster-Hale Mapping,these groups,back onto the spatial arrangement,of the recording electrodes revealed that these also correspond,to spatially segregated clusters. The analysis revealed a significantly mediation effect (bootstrap ab = 7.42, 95% confidence interval 0.92–17.12, Figure 6), suggesting the mediation role of the task-related brain coherence in the prosocial effect of interpersonal synchrony. Additional analysis revealed the significant correlation of intentionality scores with the prosocial inclination in the coordination group, r (17) = 0.61, P < 0.01 but not in the independence group, r (16) = 0.36, P > 0.05.
