Summary
"Do dogs experience emotions like people do? To find out, neuroscientist and bestselling author Gregory Berns and his team did something nobody had ever attempted: they trained dogs to go into an MRI scanner--completely awake--so they could figure out what they think and feel. But dogs were just the beginning. In [this book], Berns takes us into the brains and minds of wild animals: sea lions who can learn to dance, and dolphins who can see with sound..."--Jacket
Summary
A noted neuroscientist relates how he and his team taught dogs to go into an MRI scanner completely awake, an experiment that helped them discover what makes dogs have different capacities for self-control and value systems and a complex understanding of human speech, and which was expanded to other animals
