Research fellows Juliane Honisch and Mark Elliott presented the science behind how and why people synchronise movements at the Bloomsbury Festival in London on 20th October 2013.

The talk included fun interactive demonstrations showing how synchrony, while an apparently simple task to achieve, is in fact a complex interaction of sensory processing and movement coordination controlled within the brain. In addition, they described how synchrony can influence our perceptions of people and the enjoyment of a task. The event took place in Russell Square, and was part of the Ministry of Movement event organised by the Wellcome Trust.
