    Vientulība ir universāls, tomēr joprojām līdz galam neizprasts fenomens gan zinātnē, gan sabiedrībā. Vientulības cēloņi var būt dažādi, taču tie vienmēr saistīti ar atšķirtību- vai nu sociālu vai emocionālu. Lai mazinātu vientulības sajūtu, ir nepieciešama kvalitatīva komunikācija,...

  7. Canine emotions as seen through human social cognition.
