Brain Scans Unleash Canine Secrets, Science Daily Reports


What an intriguing project being worked on currently by Emory University researchers, and reported on by the Science daily.

The long argument as to whether dogs perceive time, or depend on circadic rhythms to fuel their uncanny ability to wait where their master once was, or to always show up at the food bowl at the exact same time everyday.

“To the skeptics out there, and the cat people, I would say that dogs are the first domesticated species, going back at least 10,000 years, and by some estimates 30,000 years,” Berns says. “The dog’s brain represents something special about how humans and animals came together. It’s possible that dogs have even affected human evolution. People who took dogs into their homes and villages may have had certain advantages. As much as we made dogs, I think dogs probably made some part of us, too.”
