Early stage Parkinson’s disease is characterizedby facial masking that reduces the ability for a caregiver to effectively comprehend the emotional state of a patient. We arestudying the introduction of a robotic co-mediator to increase the communicative bandwidth in this relationship for fostering empathic response in the caregiver. This requires modelingmoral emotions in the patient, the patient, such as shame andembarrassment, while looking for lack of congruence in thecaregiver regarding the perception of the emotional state of thepatient. Having the robot exhibit suitable kinesic behavior in response is intended to drive the relationship towardsacceptable social and medical treatment norms.
