galantucci2Dr. Bruno Galantucci, associate professor of psychology at Yeshiva College, and student Benjamin Langstein recently co-authored an article with Dr. Gareth Roberts of the University of Pennsylvania that will appear in the March 2016 edition of Language and Communication. Titled “(In)sensitivity to incoherence in human communication,” the research described in the article builds on Roberts’ and Galantucci’s previous studies, which found that about a third of participants failed to notice when their online conversation with a designated partner was interrupted by random insertions of statements from other participants’ conversations. This article details two new studies Galantucci, Roberts and Langstein conducted with enhanced methodology to more precisely measure how sensitive participants were to incoherence in online conversations.
