Physio-behavioral Coupling as an Index of Team Processes and Performance: Overview, Measurement, and Empirical Application
Research shows that teammates often exhibit similarity in their physiological and behavioral responses during cooperative task performance, a phenomenon referred to here as physio-behavioral coupling (PBC). Goals of this manuscript are to provide an overview of research examining the utility of PBC as an index of team processes (e.g., coordination) and performance, discuss applied and theoretical issues in PBC measurement, and present findings from a study using linear and nonlinear statistics to assess PBC.
