Inter-Brain Synchronization

Inter brain synchrony (IBS) has been observed in many social interactions. IBS has been observed between people in:  heart beat, music performance and listening, brain waves, video gamers, movie watching, duetting pianists, team collaboration,  team work with two aircraft pilots, child-mother relationship and other activities people do together. In most cases researches have observed the IBS behavior by using fMRI or EEG.

Having fun…but hard work

Creativity is intelligence having fun! – Albert Einstein  But hard work and persistence is needed to bring it to pass.  Having an idea is great, but turning the idea into something real people can use (and want to use) is difficult. One needs to get organized and make progress almost every day to succeed.


Find that one fun thing and pursue it until everyone knows you have succeeded.DSC_0293
