Robotic animals

Dr. Christine Olsen November 25, 2021

Here you can read the latest article I co-authored: Effects on sleep from group activity with a robotic seal…

Briefly, we found that sleep efficiency increased the amount of total sleep time and reduced number of nocturnal awakenings. In addition, a significant effect was found in reduced awakenings after sleep onset. For those who enjoy the robotic seal Paro, Paro can be an accessible and feasible non-pharmacological treatment.

Pretty fun that it’s not just dogs that have a calming effect!
