The editor team consists of Professor emerita Riitta Hari who works at the Department of Art and Professor Mikko Sams and Professor Lauri Nummenmaa, both from the Department of Neuroscience and Biomedical Engineering.

The theme issue is based on the Attention and Performance XXVI meeting organised in Tuusula, Finland in 2015.

Avatars and genuine interaction

Aalto University’s researchers are contributing to the creation of redesigned maternity and child health clinics and positive childbirth experiences in their research projects. The visions seize the potential of technology, such as childbirth simulation in a 3D-video conference using an avatar, a virtual character. On the other hand, the researchers would also like to hold on to the best practices from the past, such as the traditional child health clinic card, genuine human interaction and the rotina tradition, visits by family and close-ones to meet the newborn and bring foods as a gift.
