Open Competition Grant awarded to Sander Koole in July 2019

NWO Domain Social Sciences and Humanities has awarded funding to 41 researchers in the NWO Open Competition – SSH. This instrument makes funding available for the best research proposals in the humanities and social sciences, without any thematic limitations. The grant awarded to Sander Koole is titled The Rhythm of Relating: How Emotional Sharing Emerges From Interpersonal Synchrony in Movement, Physiological and Neural Activations. When people share their emotions, they often display the same rhythms in movements, heart rate, and even brain activity. The awarded project will investigate how such synchronous rhythms contribute to emotion regulation. The results may contribute to making psychotherapy more effective and improve communication, for instance, in close relationships or during negotiations.
