    head bob. Usually male and is a dominant sign
    Arm wave. Usually female and a submissive sign

    .I thought they arm wave to help with thermo regulation? Our female used to do it when there were no others around and usually when in her basking spot or soon after leaving it. Our male also does it.
    Not saying your wrong, it’s just an observation.

    What's the study for? Also if you ask me this is not exactly the most rigorous way of collecting data.

    When I first got my Beardie I thought it was male because it was so agressive. A friend who breeds them took a look at him one day and said he was most likely a female due to the fact she had one small bump and not two, had a very triangular head and the spots on the undersides of her back legs were dull. Although she did, and still does, head bob AND wave. Not at anything in particular, I don't have any other Beardies, and I've often caught her doing both the head bobbing and waving all by herself in my room. To be fair though, she is a tad weird. :p
