“””Measuring ICS in humans could also reveal how well groups work together, and even what types of training improve their brain synchrony and teamwork….This could be valuable for any social task that requires the synchronization of many individuals to improve social cohesion.””
If we could gather data on this, as well as Jaffe’s metrics, we could have empirical, quantifiable data to support our approach.
And this shows the importance of leadership training as there is more synchronization with the dominant monkey.
Original article added: ICS could be interpreted as a potential neuronal manifestation of social learning and even a mechanism to facilitate knowledge transfer from one subject to the other.
Cortical activity of a monkey engaged in a behavior would translate into the cortical activity of a nearby monkey, and so on, until the repetition of this social interaction could effectively reshape the interbrain functional connectivity of an entire social group. Our lab has called the resulting chain of synchronized brains a Brainet. According to our view, the occurrence of strong episodes of ICS would be the major determinant leading to the creation of such Brainets through animal social interactions occurring in their natural environments. In this context, such Brainets could include a large number of individual brains.”
