This course will cover recent theories and empirical research addressing the human ability to perform actions together. We will review theories highlighting the role of thinking and planning ahead as well as theories focusing on basic perceptual and motor processes that allow people to perform highly coordinated actions such as dancing a tango together. We will discuss research articles reporting behavioral and neuroscience experiments in this rapidly growing field. The course will also provide an overview of the different research methods that have been used in joint action research.
