Scientists decode our inability to maintain eye-to-eye contact while talking
Have you ever thought why it is difficult to maintain eye-to-eye contact when you talk to someone? Well scientists have decoded human beings’ inability to hold someone’s gaze while talking.
According to scientists, maintaining eye contact while thinking of words is too demanding a task for the brain. This may be an answer to why we sometimes find it difficult to maintain eye contact while talking.
Sometimes, when you break an eye contact with the other person, it indicates that you are bored with the conversation. But, researchers have found that it may be because we try to keep our brains from overloading.
Experiments to learn more about how the phenomenon works were carried out by the researchers from the Kyoto University in Japan.
