This chapter provides an overview of an empirical research on interpersonal synchrony during conversation. This research is guided by the assumption that there is a continuum between thinking and action and that higher-level cognition is tightly linked to perception and action. One way to test this claim is to look at the temporal alignment of people's body movements and eye movements while they converse. This temporal coordination between conversants is studied through recurrence analysis. This chapter concludes by arguing that these rich patterns of behavioural coordination likely reflect coordination of the underlying cognitive states and processes guiding conversation.

Keywords:   synchrony, thinking, action, perception, body movements, eye movements, recurrence analysis, coordination, conversation
