How does synchrony- the matching of actions in time with others- shape the human experience? How does it affect the expression of social norms- both tight and loose- boost prosocial behavior and bonding, and even alter our own subjective experience of pain?
In this session of Examined Lives we will explore these questions and linked resources as well as call upon moments of synchrony experienced in our own lives.
