This course will cover recent theories and empirical research on joint action. The focus will be on ongoing research in our lab. Specific topics include the role of thinking and planning ahead as well as research focusing on basic perceptual and motor processes that allow people to perform highly coordinated actions such as playing a piano duet together. We will discuss behavioral and neuroscience experiments with a focus on studies that have been conducted by members of our lab. The course will also include experimental demonstrations to provide an overview of different research methods that are used in joint action research.
