Diagnosis and Treatment of Autism

Fred R. Volkmar
1992 Journal of child and adolescent psychopharmacology  
Robots allow experiments to be performed that address core social interactive behavior such as eye gaze, turn taking, joint reference or imitation.  ...  This includes plans for extensive future studies of interaction between the robot and children with autism. The work also ties in with the eye tracking work described above.  ...

Why Robots? A Survey on the Roles and Benefits of Social Robots in the Therapy of Children with Autism

John-John Cabibihan, Hifza Javed, Marcelo Ang, Sharifah Mariam Aljunied
2013 International Journal of Social Robotics  
Child-robot interactions were scrutinized with respect to the different target behaviors that are to be elicited from a child during therapy.  ...  This paper reviews the use of socially interactive robots to assist in the therapy of children with autism.  ...  This is very important since the very purpose of therapy is to facilitate the child's social interaction with other people, not just with the robots.  ...

Neurobiological Aspects of Face Recognition: The Role of Oxytocin

Olga L. Lopatina, Yulia K. Komleva, Yana V. Gorina, Haruhiro Higashida, Alla B. Salmina
2018 Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience  
Face recognition is an important index in the formation of social cognition and neurodevelopment in humans.  ...  Various brain regions and neuropeptides are implicated in face processing. The neuropeptide oxytocin (OT) plays an important role in various social behaviors, including face and emotion recognition.  ...  Nowadays eye tracking method to dogs is viable.  ...

Virtual Humans in Serious Games

Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann, Zerrin Kasap
2009 2009 International Conference on CyberWorlds  
Virtual humans are the inhabitants of the simulated worlds in these games and the challenge is not only to make them look like humans but also to make them behave as humans.  ...  This paper gives an overview of serious games applications and mention about research on socially intelligent virtual characters and their use in serious games.  ...  For the gaze movement generation, the two trends are data-driven or parametric methods. In Lee et al. [42] , a data-driven method is presented based on statistical analysis of eye-tracking data.  ...

2014 Perspectives on Psychological Science  
The nativist view of mentalizing-the view that humans have an inherent capacity to think about the mental states of others-has been recently reinvigorated by reports that adults and infants automatically  ...  represent mental statesthat they engage in implicit mentalizing.  ...  In contrast, the behavior of a 12-month-old who follows the gaze of an adult is more likely to be described as implicit mentalizing because the infant has very little linguistic skill and did not track  ...
