There are some historical divisions in methods, rationales, and purposes between studies on comparative cognition and behavioural ecology. In turn, the interaction between these two branches and studies from mathematics, computation, and neuroscience is not usual. In this short piece, we attempt to build bridges among these disciplines. We present a series of interconnected vignettes meant to illustrate what a more interdisciplinary approach looks like when successful, and its advantages.

We showcase 5 research efforts, which we believe successfully link 5 particular scientific areas of rhythm research conceptualised as the following: social neuroscience, detailed rhythmic quantification, ontogeny, computational approaches, and spontaneous interactions. Our suggestions will hopefully spur a "comparative rhythms in interaction" field, which can integrate and capitalize on knowledge from zoology, comparative psychology, neuroscience, and computation.
