Abstract

In a commentary on Palagi et al. (2020); Gallup (2021) raises concerns on “the link between contagious yawning and emotional contagion”, proposing that “variation in contagious yawning is driven by attentional biases and yawn detection”. We acknowledge that evidence is not always univocal and discuss here some theoretical and empirical issues relevant to advance our understanding of contagious yawning (CY).
