The present article analyzes the diversity of motor skills related to three different kinds of instructions: descriptive, metaphoric, and kinesic, with a special emphasis on the detection of temporal patterns (T-patterns). Twelve undergraduates studying sport and physical education, but without experience in dance, were observed during 24 lessons of Body(More)
A basic tenet in the realm of modern behavioral sciences is that behavior consists of patterns in time. For this reason, investigations of behavior deal with sequences that are not easily perceivable by the unaided observer. This problem calls for improved means of detection, data handling and analysis. This review focuses on the analysis of the temporal(More)
Quantitative analysis of sports performance has been shown to produce information that coaches can use within the coaching process to enhance performance. Traditional methods for quantifying sport performances are limited in their capacity to describe the complex interactions of events that occur within a performance over time. In this paper, we outline a(More)

The behavioural analysis of human-robot interactions can help in developing socially interactive robots. The current study analyzes human-robot interaction with Theme software and the corresponding pattern detection algorithm. The method is based on the analysis of the temporal structure of the interactions by detecting T-patterns in the behaviour. We have(More)
Traditional methods for quantifying sport performances are limited in their capacity to describe the complex interactions of events that occur within a performance over time. The following article outlines a new approach to the study of actions between players in team sports--mainly, soccer. Since the observational design is nomothetic, point, and(More)
Rhythmic synchronization phenomena in interpersonal communication are classified into two, based on its temporal aspect and behavioural form similarity aspect. We focus on the temporal aspect, movement synchrony, the gestalt-like perception of movement rhythmicity or coordination. With the aid of THEME, we aim to describe it based on statistical definition(More)
Multimodal natural behavior of humans presents a complex yet highly coordinated set of interacting processes. Providing robots with such interactive skills is a challenging and worthy goal and numerous such efforts are currently underway; evaluating the progress in this direction, however, continues to be a challenge. General methods for measuring the(More)
