≪Organizer Abstract≫
Humans actively use behavioral synchrony such as dancing and singing when they intend to make affiliative relationships. We also unconsciously coordinate behavior with that of others in daily life (e.g., conversation). Although such activities seems to play an important role in human bonding mechanism, the evolutionary origin is unclear. This symposium will provide a unique gathering interdisciplinary researchers engaged in studies about behavioral coordination and synchronization in human and non-human primates. The symposium also includes new perspectives for understanding evolutionary origins of behavioral coordination and synchronization in humans.
