Dog’s brain reacts to voice same way that the human brain


In a recent research it reveals that the dogs process language in a similar way to humans, with the right side dealing with emotion and the left processing meaning. Two mechanisms are needed to us to understand what another person says: words and intonation. Vocabulary conveys information, but higher and lower changes in tone alter a message’s meaning.

In an experiment the trained dogs lie in an MRI scanner to monitor what happened in their brain when someone spoke to them. During the scan, researcher spoke “Good boy” in a praising tone.

The scans showed the dogs left brain tended to be activated when they heard the words that were meaningful to them. Than researcher spoke some meaningless words and what they found is that brain didn’t react when they heard words they didn’t understand.

“It shows that for dogs, a nice praise can very well work as a reward, but it works best if both words and intonation match,” Dr Andics said.
