Project Title:

Are Two Brains Better than One? Hyperbrain Markers of Joint Action

Project Description:

This PhD project aims to explore hyperbrain networks in real-world interactive motor tasks. The aims are threefold:
(i) to systematically review the literature on hyperbrain networks implicated in interactive joint action;
(ii) to examine how functional hyperbrain networks develop over time in dyadic teams; and
(iii) to develop a bio-neurofeedback intervention aimed at capturing, monitoring, and enhancing the likelihood of peak performance experiences in dyadic teams.

The impact of this project includes the advancement of theoretical, methodological, and applied knowledge on the neural markers of team learning and performance.

This project will be supervised by Dr. Edson Filho, Dr. Beth Richardson and Prof. Linden J. Ball.
