Social orienting in gaze-based interactions: Consequences of joint gaze

  title={Social orienting in gaze-based interactions: Consequences of joint gaze},
  author={Stephen Gareth Edwards},
Abstract Jointly attending to a shared referent with other people is a social attention behaviour that occurs often and has many developmental and ongoing social impacts. This thesis focused on examining the online, as well as later emerging, impacts of being the gaze leader of joint attention, which has until recently been under-researched. A novel social orienting response that occurs after viewing averted gaze is reported, showing that a gaze leader will rapidly orient their attention… 



Social orienting in gaze leading: a mechanism for shared attention

A novel social orienting response that occurs after viewing averted gaze is reported that implies the existence of a mechanism in the human social cognitive system for detecting when one's gaze has been followed, in order to establish ‘shared attention’ and maintain the ongoing interaction.

Eyes on the Mind: Investigating the Influence of Gaze Dynamics on the Perception of Others in Real-Time Social Interaction

Results demonstrate that both timing and congruency of a gaze reaction as well as the other’s action options influence the sense of agency.

Orienting attention via observed gaze shift evokes longer term inhibitory effects: implications for social interactions, attention, and memory.

Gaze cuing over longer intervals than previously observed is demonstrated, that these longer term effects can be inhibitory, and that the longer term gaze cuing effects do not appear to be contingent on retrieval associated with a particular face identity.

"Gaze leading": initiating simulated joint attention influences eye movements and choice behavior.

It is shown that fixation dwell time upon and reorienting toward a face are affected by whether that individual face shifts its eyes in a congruent or an incongruent direction in response to the participant's eye movement.

A direct link between gaze perception and social attention.

Overall, the data suggest a direct link between the specific operation of gaze perception mechanisms and the consequential orienting of attention.

Gaze cueing of attention: visual attention, social cognition, and individual differences.

This review aims to provide a comprehensive overview of past and current research into the perception of gaze behavior and its effect on the observer, including gaze-cueing paradigm that has been used to investigate the mechanisms of joint attention.

The Mutual Influence of Gaze and Head Orientation in the Analysis of Social Attention Direction

Three experiments are reported that investigate the hypothesis that head orientation and gaze direction interact in the processing of another individual's direction of social attention, and head and gaze cues showed symmetrical interference effects.

Gaze cuing and affective judgments of objects: I like what you look at

It is found that objects that are looked at by other people are liked more than objects that do not receive the attention of other people, which suggests that observing averted gaze can have an impact on the affective appraisals of objects in the environment.

Social status gates social attention in humans

The findings confirm previous evidence regarding the important role of social factors in shaping social attention and show that a modulation of gaze cuing can be observed even when knowledge about social status is acquired through episodic learning.
