The Role of Eye-gaze Patterns in Turn-taking - In the past, there have been several studies about eye-gaze patterns in turn-taking. One of these studies is that of Vertegaal et al (2001), which was to verify if eye gaze could predict to whom conversational partners are speaking or listening to in a multi-user environment. By multi-user environments the experimenters mean a conversation with three or more actors involved. In their introduction Vertegaal et al (2001) present several different predictions about the research. In their first hypothesis they argue that “significantly more time is spent gazing at the individual one listens or speaks to, than at others” (p.302)....   [tags: multi-user environment, gaze ]
