Video after the jump. “During human communication, a human distinguishes the partnerfs individuals by the facial features such as the silhouette, the position and shape of each part, and gauges the mental state based on the facial expressions. Many researchers have developed the robots that can express their emotions using the facial expressions. However, a robot that can change individual facial aspects has not yet been researched. Therefore, we developed a face robot that expresses various faces by changing a shape of the mask and projecting a face image on the face mask.

The fine dopamine line between creativity and schizophrenia

By studying receptors in the brain, researchers at the Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet have managed to show that the dopamine system in healthy, highly creative people is similar in some respects to that seen in people with schizophrenia. High creative skills have been shown to be somewhat more common in people who have mental illness in the family. Creativity is also linked to a slightly higher risk of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Certain psychological traits, such as the ability to make unusual pr bizarre associations are also shared by schizophrenics and healthy, highly creative people.

And now the correlation between creativity and mental health has scientific backing.
