Watch where you look – it can be used to predict what you'll say. A new study shows that it is possible to guess what sentences people will use to describe a scene by tracking their eye movements.

Moreno Coco and Frank Keller at the University of Edinburgh, UK, presented 24 volunteers with a series of photo-realistic images depicting indoor scenes such as a hotel reception. They then tracked the sequence of objects that each volunteer looked at after being asked to describe what they saw.

Other than being prompted with a keyword, such as "man" or "suitcase", participants were free to describe the scene however they liked. Some typical sentences included "the man is standing in the reception of a hotel" or "the suitcase is on the floor".

If you have had some training in observing human behaviour, you can tell a lot from body movement and the eyes are most important, ie:- the pupils shrink when people lie,others look anywhere except at you,there is a book by Desmond Morris called Observing Human Behaviour,which is worth a look if anyone is interested.It certainly taught me a lot ref powers of observation in my work before I retired.
