Professor Laurel Trainor works in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience & Behaviour at McMaster University and has done groundbreaking neuroscience research on musical development in children and infants and her research spans perceptual, cognitive, and social aspects of pitch and rhythm. Join Dr. Trainor and graduate student Andrew Chang  to discover how the study of music on the human brain can help us understand our own interpersonal communication.

Rhythms of interpersonal communication

Laurel Trainor (Presenter)
Social interaction is crucial for human survival. Using musical ensembles as a model of non-verbal interaction, we have shown that the body sway of musicians reflects interpersonal communication. Specifically, from the body sway of one musician at one period in time we can predict how another musician will move next. Furthermore, information flow through body sway is greater from leaders to followers than vice versa and greater for successful performances. Such measures of interpersonal information flow generalize to other contexts, such as matches in speed dating.
