Musicians and dancers often demonstrate incredibly precise timing and form social connections through music. In addition, music performance, in particular, conveys emotion, creates a sense of shared social identity, and is fundamental to the human experience. The Music, Action, and Dynamics laboratory uses the movements and timing between people during musical performances or social interactions to understand:
» The cognitive, perceptual, and social mechanisms that allow people to coordinate their actions
» How music affords social and emotional experiences
» Leverage dynamical systems and time-series approaches to understand musical experiences
