In Study 3, we explore the relation between HR dynamics, behavioral coordination, and self-reported measures of rapport and group competence. While behavioral coordination predicts rapport and group competence, shared HR dynamics do not.

Inspired by the model of interpersonal synergy, we critically investigate the presence, temporal development, possible mechanisms and impact of shared interpersonal heart rate dynamics during individual and collective creative LEGO construction tasks.
