Thesis Details

Predicting the action of other agents.

Theory suggests that coordinated joint action relies on the ability of actors to internally simulate the actions of their co-actors. These internal simulations, which facilitate anticipatory motor planning, are generated based on how the actors would themselves perform these actions. If this is the case, then we should be able to observe enhanced anticipatory motor planning when actors coordinate actions with co-actors closely matching their own movement patterns; this will be further increased when coordinating actions with recordings of themselves.
