Karl F. MacDorman presents on the uncanny valley at the 2007 NMC Summer Conference (June 6-9, 2007, Indianapolis), hosted by the Indiana University School of Informatics. The talk presents evidence that the appearance of a robot, presented either in human guise or as a machine, can influence human behavior and brain processing. A human-looking android activates the mirror system (mirror neurons) to a greater extent; however, it may also cause other activation that is associated with the uncanny valley.
