The Higashi Research Team welcomed Dr. Takanori Shibata, the inventor of PARO the robotic seal, to Higashi!  Our research team used PARO beginning in 2008 for a research study involving social interaction and representational play. The team discussed future studies involving PARO, and we look forward to a continuing relationship with Dr.  Shibata.
