What Your Dog Is Thinking

[YouTube Link]

What (bacon) is your dog (bacon) thinking (bacon)? Scientists from Emory
University decided to find out by putting a dog in an MRI machine:

In a new study, scientists report that they have for the first
time successfully trained dogs to lie awake and still in an MRI machine
for 10 to 15 seconds, long enough to complete a scan.

“We can actually capture brain images and see what parts
of the brain are activating when we have hand signals or when we talk
to [the dog] or when we point this way or that way. Now we can really
begin to understand what a dog is thinking,” said researcher Gregory
Berns, a professor of neuroeconomics at Emory, in a video about the
study.
