How we’re using high-tech eye tracking to unlock the mysteries of conversation


Every person has a unique ‘fingerprint’ pattern of how our eyes move during conversation and ECU's Dr Shane Rogers wants to know why and what those patterns mean.

High tech eye-tracking technology is letting ECU researchers discover more about conversation.

Every person has a unique ‘fingerprint’ pattern of how our eyes move during conversation and ECU's Dr Shane Rogers wants to know why and what those patterns mean.

Eye-tracking glasses are allowing us to monitor the tiny movements every person makes during face-to-face conversation and ECU researchers are trying to figure out how we can use that information.

Dr Shane Rogers' research has shown each person has their own pattern of movement and that different emotions or reactions can elicit different responses from the eyes.

He's hoping his research will be able to unlock the mysteries behind the eyes to improve our communication in education, business or other settings where face-to-face conversation are important.
