Quantifying the Dynamics of Interpersonal Interaction: A Primer on Cross-Recurrence Quantification Analysis using R

Abstract

Over the last decade, the dynamics of interpersonal interaction has become a growing topic in cognitive science, precisely because of the important implications that interpersonal dynamics carry on shaping our ‘social cognitive system.’ Many important advances on this research topic have been possible through the application of concepts and statistical methods, which provide quantification for the dynamic structure of cognitive responses observed when individuals interact such as Recurrence Quantification Analysis (RQA). In this tutorial, cognitive scientists from different fields, and at different stages of their career will learn a dynamical systems framework to interpret and understand interpersonal interaction, and acquire the analytical principles of C/RQA, which helps framing this approach.
