Details Flow is a highly motivated and affectively positive state inwhich a person is deeplyengaged in an activity and feeling enjoyment from it. In collaborative activities, itwould be optimal if all participants were in a state of flow. However, flow statesfluctuate amongst individuals due to differences in the dynamics of motivation andcognition. To explore the possibility that inter-brain synchronization can provide aquantitative measure of the convergence and divergence of collective motivationaldynamics, we conducted a pilot study to investigate the relationship between inter-brainsynchronization and the interpersonal similarity of flow state dynamics during thecollaborative learning process.
