Science behind Synchronization of Our Brains during Conversation

Narendra D. Sharma


Recently, a study published in ‘Scientific Reports’, led by the Basque Research Centre (BCBL) reported that the rhythms of brainwaves between two people taking part in a conversation begin to match each other. It appears that something as simple as an everyday conversation causes the brains of the participants to begin to work simultaneously. According to these scientists, this ‘inter-brain synchrony’ may be a key factor in understanding language and interpersonal communication. Scientists even measured the movements of their brainwaves simultaneously and confirmed that their oscillations were taking place at the same time. Firstly, the research of these scientists is discussed in this article, and then, an attempt is made scientifically explaining this phenomenon and deliberates upon the mechanism of interbrain synchrony which happens in the ‘Field of Consciousness’, established among participants.
