The Science Behind the Art of Conversation — Blue Plate Research

Lecture/Readings

Conversations are integral to our daily lives, serving as the foundation for building and maintaining relationships, conducting work, raising children, accessing services, engaging in our communities, and more. While the act of having a conversation may seem straightforward, it involves a complex coordination of behaviors, requiring communication partners to make constant adaptations to understand one another and ensure a smooth interaction.

At the upcoming Blue Plate Research event, titled 'The Science Behind the Art of Conversation,' Dr. Stephanie Borrie will explore how successful conversations emerge from the collaborative efforts of those engaged in them. She will delve into her research into the impact of neurological conditions such as stroke, brain injury, and Parkinson’s disease on conversation, and will discuss strategies for how communication partners can work together to improve conversational success.

We invite you to join this insightful session on Thursday, March 21st, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Gallivan Hall in downtown Salt Lake City. It's an opportunity to understand the science that informs the subtleties of our daily interactions and to enhance the way we connect with others.
