Dr. Rabinowitch was hosted by Prof. Tobias Greitemeyer from the Department of Psychology at the University of Innsbruck.
The purpose of the visit was to kick-start a unique and exciting collaborative research project between Prof. Greitemeyer’s lab and Dr. Rabinowitch's lab called the music and social development lab" in Israel.
In this research project, they want to study the effects of a synchronous intervention on the social relationships and behaviors within a group. "Interpersonal synchrony has repeatedly been shown to strengthen social bonds and enhance positive social interaction. However, very few studies have also explored the potential negative effects of interpersonal synchrony, and in particular, inducing hostile or non-collaborative attitudes towards out-group members", says Dr. Rabinowitch.
During her research visit, Prof. Greitemeyer and her have discussed the details of the study and trained four research assistants in running the study.
AIANI was happy to welcome Dr. Rabinowitch to Innsbruck and is looking foward to read about the results of the research project.
