Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) In Human Computer Interaction, the uncanny valley is crucial to design the appropriate appearance of an agent for human beings. Previous studies have implied that human perceives a humanlike agent in two processes. We conducted the experiment to clarify how human observes a humanlike agent and the results showed that participants perceive it as human at first and then as non-human. These two information-processes can be explained by the dual-pathway of emotion. In current study, we propose a model for the occurrence of uncanny valley based on the function of hippocampus, which can provide the explanation for human evocation of the feeling of the eeriness toward a humanlike agent.
