Dynamics of Conversational Engagement: An Interdisciplinary Perspective 20th September 2012 Cognition Institute, Plymouth University, UK Sponsored by the Experimental Psychology Society (EPS)
Face-to-face conversational interaction goes far beyond the words exchanged. To understand the nature of human communication it is necessary to integrate the diverse modes of information exchange which occur during communicative interactions. The workshop will discuss conversational engagement from multiple perspectives, including the linguistic and behavioural dynamics of human interactions and their neurophysiological correlates.
