The present study investigates the interaction between gaze and language using a real-world paradigm. Each participant followed instructions to build a series of abstract(More)
During collaboration, people communicate using verbal and non-verbal cues, including gaze cues. Social factors can affect gaze allocation, however most research on gaze cueing has not considered these factors. The presence of social roles was manipulated in a collaborative task whilst eye movements were measured. In pairs, participants worked together to(More)
Gaze cues are used alongside language to communicate. Lab-based studies have shown that people reflexively follow gaze cue stimuli, however it is unclear whether this affect is present in real interactions. Language specificity influences the extent to which we utilize gaze cues in real interactions, but it is unclear whether the type of language used can(More)
Gaze cues quickly orient attention, but language can affect the extent to which we follow these cues (Macdonald & Tatler, 2013).
