A professor of neuroeconomics at Atlanta’s Emory University is convinced that dogs are capable of human-like feelings.
Greg Berns,With the assistance of a dog trainer,managed to get his black terrier Callie to sit still long enough to take an MRI scan of the dog’s brain. He noticed that the brain activity in Callie’s caudate nucleus increased at the sight of hand signals indicating food as well as the smell of humans.
Therefore, dogs seem to experience some kind of positive emotions and Berns believes this could eventually lead to laws that call for better treatment for animals.
Did we really need a University study to know this? I have no problem telling you I love my dog very much.
