Inventor of PARO Meets with Researchers

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.
