Description: Using a base methodological format developed by Ramseyer (2010), the four studies presented here examine the relationship between dyadic rapport development and consequential displays of synchronous behavior. While conceptually and procedurally related, each study explores how a distinct contextual factor (or combination of factors) influences this rapport / synchrony interplay. The resulting data are particularly exciting because researchers relied upon an objective synchrony gauge (Motion Energy Analysis; Rokesby & Ramseyer, 2008) for measures of dyadic coordination.
