Abstract

An order parameter equation for correlated limb movements was applied to rhythmic coordination between the limbs of two people. The interlimb coordination was established and maintained through vision. Manipulations of frequency competition, coupled frequency, and intended mode (in-phase or anti-phase) produced equilibria and fluctuations in relative phase predicted by the order parameter equation and confirmed originally in within-person coordination. It was concluded that there is an elementary coordination dynamics governing the rhythmic coordination between organisms as well as between components of a single organism.
