From How Emotions Are Made
Jump to: navigation, search

Chapter 13 endnote 15, from How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain by Lisa Feldman Barrett.
Some context is:

...your neurons influence one another not only through direct connections but indirectly through the outside environment, in an interaction with me. We are performing a synchronized dance of prediction and action, regulating each other’s body budgets. This same synchrony is the basis of social connection and empathy; it makes people trust and like each other, and it’s crucial for parent-infant bonding.

Other names for synchrony include mimicry,[1] attunement,[2] co-regulation,[3][4] mirroring,[5] and "emotional contagion" (although the use of the word "emotion" is misplaced here),[6] not to mention "reciprocity," "contingency,"[7] "coordination,"[8][9] "concordance," "coupling," and "mutuality."

For more about synchrony, see these references.[10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17]
