Experiments on animals has been playing very important part in psychology, medical science, genetics and brain science. Rodents are one of the most popular experimental subjects in these experiments. In psychology and brain science, behavior test and analysis on rodents, especially rats, has been performed to clarify mechanisms of mind or brain functions.(More)
This paper presents the design and development of a bio-inspired legged rat robot, as an experimental tool for studying social interaction between rats and robots. The rat robot will be used as a platform to clarify basic factors for a relationship between rats and robots based on animal psychology and behavior. The developed rat robot has 4 legs with 3 DOF(More)
In psychology and basic medical science, many studies have been performed with experiments on animals such as rats and mice, to clarify mechanisms of mental disorders. With this aim, several “mental disorder model” rats and mice have been developed by genetic manipulation, giving psychotropic drugs, injuring their brain or breeding under(More)
Behavior synchronization of humans during conversation and cooperative task has been studied in psychology. In robotics, several researchers also have been studying cooperative task between a human and a robot referring to these studies. However, mechanisms of behavior synchronization are still unclear because of complexity of human being. Therefore,(More)
