While continuous EEG activity was recorded, brain synchrony between a stereotype threatened actor and her non-threated partner engendered emotion contagion to undermine partners’ but not actors’ performance. Findings suggest that this stereotype-based stress contagion may prompt negative group outcomes in STEM via brain synchrony and not just for those directly under threat.
