New CIA Lab Paper; Cross et al, ‘Imagined Steps: Mental Simulation of Coordinated Rhythmic Movements Effects on Pro-Sociality’

CIA Lab alum Dr Liam Cross has just had his second paper published from his PhD;

Cross, L., Atherton, G., Wilson, A. D., & Golonka, S. (2017). Imagined Steps: Mental Simulation of Coordinated Rhythmic Movements Effects on Pro-Sociality. Frontiers in Psychology, 8:1798. doi: 10.3389/fpsyg.2017.01798

This is part of Liam’s work on the mechanisms connecting coordinated rhythmic movement to pro-social behaviour in which we also did a large scale replication to check a weird result (that the replication killed!)

Full text available shortly at the above link, we’re just finishing author proofs. Congratulations Liam!

Cross et al, 2016, How Moving Together Brings Us Together

Our recently graduated PhD student Liam Cross has just published his first paper from his PhD in a Research Topic, Dynamics of Joint-Action, Social Coordination and Multi-Agent Activity. Thanks to Mike Richardson for the invite to submit and our reviewers for their fair and useful feedback!

And congratulations Liam! One down, three to go 🙂

Liam submitted his PhD and takes a job!

Our first PhD student, Liam Cross, has just submitted his thesis after a blur of hard work over the last few months. His dissertation is entitled ‘Moving In Time Together:  How coordinated rhythmic movement affects our social behaviours and cognitions’. Liam has been using Andrew’s coordinated rhythmic movement task to investigate the mechanisms causing coordination to affect social cognition.

Liam defends his thesis in the new year; he has moved away to take a maternity cover post in Lancaster. Papers from the thesis should start rolling out once he’s done defending!
