Brain regions involved in observing and trying to interpret dog behaviour
| Contributor(s):: Charlotte Desmet, Alko van der Wiel, Marcel Brass
Humans and dogs have interacted for millennia. As a result, humans (and especially dog owners) sometimes try to interpret dog behaviour. While there is extensive research on the brain regions that are involved in mentalizing about other peoples’ behaviour, surprisingly little is known of...

Clinical Findings in Dogs Trained for Awake-MRI
out of 5 stars

Training dogs for awake-MRI began in 2012 for the study of canine cognition. Although originally envisioned as a research technique to understand the neural mechanisms of canine cognitive function, its potential as a new diagnostic clinical tool has become apparent. A high-quality structural...
Zinc Nanoparticles Enhance Brain Connectivity in the Canine Olfactory Network: Evidence From an fMRI Study in Unrestrained Awake Dogs
| Contributor(s):: Bhavitha Ramaihgari, Oleg M. Pustovyy, Paul Waggoner, Ronald J. Beyers, Chester Wildey, Edward Morrison, Nouha Salibi, Jeffrey S. Katz, Thomas S. Denney, Vitaly J. Vodyanoy, Gopikrishna Deshpande
Prior functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) studies have indicated increased neural activation when zinc nanoparticles are added to odorants in canines. Here we demonstrate that zinc nanoparticles up-regulate directional brain connectivity in parts of the canine olfactory network. This...

Human cerebral response to animal affective vocalizations
| Contributor(s):: Pascal Belin, Shirley Fecteau, Ian Charest, Nicholas Nicastro, Marc D Hauser, Jorge L Armony
It is presently unknown whether our response to affective vocalizations is specific to those generated by humans or more universal, triggered by emotionally matched vocalizations generated by other species. Here, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging in normal participants to measure...
