<p>Neural synchrony, the correlation of brain activity patterns across people, is an emerging method for exploring how teams collaborate. Correlated brain activity is suggested to underlie convergent information processing and understanding between people. Previous studies have found that the quality of communication between group members affects neural synchrony. Taking this into consideration, the current study aims to further explore the role of communication in neural synchrony. Physiological measures of the brain were obtained using functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) targeting the frontal lobe and temporal-parietal junction during a team game where four-person groups were required to collaborate to maximize their score on a joint simulated cooking task. We hypothesize that the ability to communicate within a team would result in increased neural synchrony while playing the team simulation game, as opposed to not being able to communicate during the game. Results from this study will provide more information about how communication contributes to shared information processing and understanding among team members.</p>
