In order to construct the robot can have good relationship and communication with humans, we have tried to specify the neural circuit concern to the animacy. The results showed that it is linked to the self-frontal area in the brain. Measuring EEG when one views the human, android, and humanoid robot showed that the mu wave activity was decreased. Twelve-month-old infants were shown videos in which a human or a robot gazed at one of two objects. Infants followed the gaze direction of both human and robot, but only human gaze was facilitated their object learning: infants showed enhanced processing of and preferences for, the target object gazed at by the human but not by the robot.
