Brain Scans Reveal What Dogs Are Thinking
Research aims to advance our understanding of how dogs perceive us and the world around them.
Emory University’s Center for Neuropolicy in Atlanta has developed a new way of scanning the brains of alert dogs with the aim of getting a more accurate understanding of how they think. According to the center’s director and lead researcher Gregory Berns:
As far as we know, no one has been able to do this previously. We hope this opens up a whole new door for understanding canine cognition and inter-species communication. We want to understand the dog-human relationship, from the dog’s perspective.
