Abstract

Successful interpersonal coordination requires that two or more agents synchronize and adapt to each other’s movements. Behavioral studies suggest that performing effective complementary (i.e. non-imitative) actions like for example “passing an object” implies the sharing of a common overarching goal (e.g. passing the object from one person to the other), which in turn depends on the achievement of two different sub-goals, each specific for each co-agent (e.g. handing/receiving). However, much less is known about the neurocognitive bases of “shared goal” representation during realistic complementary interactions. In three experiments, we combined off-line inhibitory Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation and motion capture analyses to investigate the causal role of two key motor regions (left anterior Intra-Parietal Sulcus, aIPS, ventral Premotor Cortex, vPM) in supporting the ability to perform complementary interactions with a virtual partner. Results showed that only aIPS (and not vPM o
