Words meaning and tone

Postby Pajarita » Mon Aug 03, 2020 9:07 am

This is a study done on dogs comparing to reactions in humans brains. It differentiates words the dogs know (like praise or commands), words the dogs don't associate with anything (just chatting) and tones of voice. They found that dogs brains react pretty much like humans brains but I bet that, if they did a study on parrots, they would find that they react exactly the same!

This article explains the study (which is actually hard to understand due to the scientific language)
