Abstract

Establishing and maintaining connections with others is central to a fulfilling social life In this respect, behavioral coordination provides one avenue by which interpersonal linkages call be formed Drawing from the dynamical systems approach, the present research explored whether temporary interpersonal connections founded oil coordinated behaviour Influence memory for self and others To do so, we measured red participants' Incidental recall of self and other-relevant information after a period of either In-phase or anti-phase interpersonal coordination While participants in the less stable anti-phase condition demonstrated the typical memory advantage for self-related compared to other-related information, tills effect was eliminated when participant and confederate movements displayed in-phase coordination These results are discussed with respect to the interplay between the systems that support interpersonal synchrony and basic social-cognitive processing.
