In the ERC project we suggest a new approach for understanding interaction-based learning that focuses on inter-brain plasticity. The study aims at introducing a new theory on how inter-brain networks reorganize following training in interaction-based learning. It has three objectives:
To develop a model of inter-brain plasticity during learning (short-term), following training (long-term) and generalization between/within interaction partners;
To develop a novel dyadic-neurofeedback technology that allows drawing causal inferences between inter-brain plasticity and learning;
To test whether diminished inter-brain plasticity in Autism Spectrum Disorders may be reversed following training with the new dyadic neurofeedback.
