 +<​u>'''​Article:'''</​u>​ [http://​www.et.byu.edu/​groups/​tilar/​pioggia.pdf An Android for Enhancing Social Skills and Emotion Recognition in People With Autism] by Giovanni Pioggia, ''​Member'',​ ''​IEEE'',​ Roberta Igliozzi, Marcello Ferro, Arti Ahluwalia, Filippo Muratori, and Danilo De Rossi
 +<​u>'''​Introduction to paper:'''</​u>​
 +This paper introduced a human-looking robot head called FACE.  It can make 6 different expressions. ​ Some activities they can do with children and FACE are to ask the child to: (1) match FACE's expression with another picture from a list of expressive faces (2) verbally explain the emotion FACE is expressing, or (3) choose a facial expression that would suit a social situation or emotion. ​ They involved a child with ASD, and a normal developing child, in such activities, and watched their heart rates. ​ They plan on furthering their researching,​ using FACE.
 +<​u>'''​Application to personal research:'''</​u>​
 +I think that training someone with ASD to ''​identify''​ another person'​s (and/or to express their own) emotional state through facial expressions is a surface solution. ​ A more complete solution would be to help the person with ASD to ''​understand and empathize''​ with others. ​ Instead of showing a picture and saying, "this person is happy,"​ the therapist could identify the child'​s feelings and show a picture of a facial expression that matches it and say something like, "you are happy, he's happy just like you, and he makes this face when he's happy." ​ I don't know how well this will apply to TiLAR research, unless we decide to build a human-looking robot head.  We CAN do something with an avatar, to start.
 +* How well do children with ASD understand their own emotions?
 +* Is it JUST the subtle facial cues that make it hard for autistic people to identify other'​s emotions? ​ Or does mind-blindness also factor in, making it hard for someone with ASD to empathize with someone else's emotions even when they know what emotions that person is trying to convey?
 +<​u>'''​Additional notes from paper:'''</​u>​
 +* '''​Mind-blindness'''​ is another way of referring to "​Theory of Mind" (the inability to see things from anyone'​s perspective but your own)
 +* "basic '''​emotion understanding'''​ can be taught"​
