"ScienceDaily (Feb. 2, 2009) — Armies train by marching in step. Religions around the world incorporate many forms of singing and chanting into their rituals.

A new study, published in the journal Psychological Science, suggests that when people engage in synchronous activity together, they become more likely to cooperate with other group members."
