Why do we fall into synchrony when we are walking next to each other on the street? Why do we chant in unison, and why does it feel almost magical when we say the same thing at the same time without previously rehearsing it? At this station, you will get familiar with an experiment that aims to answer questions about an important and exciting element of movement coordination: synchronization.

Durchschnittliche Verweildauer: 20 Minuten

Maximale Kapazität der Station: 2 Personen

Illustration of the experiment

Together we can achieve anything - but how would we achieve it, and how would we feel about each other in the process? In this experiment, participants can try out how (well) they can coordinate with other people in a fun and interactive way. With experiments like this, we learn about the social brain, and why two are needed to dance the tango - or to inflate virtual balloons!
