  1. Understanding of human communicative motives in domestic dogs

    Contributor(s):: Pettersson, Helene, Kaminski, Juliane, Herrmann, Esther, Tomasello, Michael

    Chimpanzees find it easier to locate food when a human prohibits them from going to a certain location than when she indicates that location helpfully. Human children, in contrast, use the cooperative gesture more readily. The question here was whether domestic dogs are more like chimpanzees, in...

  2. Understanding of human referential gestures is not correlated to human-directed social behaviour in Labrador retrievers and German shepherd dogs

    Contributor(s):: Sundman, Ann-Sofie, Persson, Mia E., Grozelier, Anna, Halldén, Lise-Lotte, Jensen, Per, Roth, Lina S. V.

    Dogs are known to excel in interspecific communication with humans and both communicate with humans and follow human communicative cues. Two tests commonly used to test these skills are, firstly, the problem-solving paradigm, and, secondly, following human referential signals, for example...

  4. Dogs (Canis familiaris), but Not Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes), Understand Imperative Pointing

    Chimpanzees routinely follow the gaze of humans to outside targets. However, in most studies using object choice they fail to use communicative gestures (e.g. pointing) to find hidden food. Chimpanzees' failure to do this may be due to several difficulties with this paradigm. They may, for...

  6. California Sea Lions (Zalophus californianus) Can Follow Human Finger Points and Glances

    | Contributor(s):: Thomas Arkwright, Raphaelle Malassis, Toby Carter, Fabienne Delfour

    The aim of this study was to determine whether California sea lions (Zalophus californianus) are capable of using subtle human gestural cues in a series of object choice tests. Four sea lions, housed at Parc Astérix Dolphinarium (Plailly, France), were tested using three gestural cues:...

  7. Domesticated Dogs' (Canis familiaris) Response to Dishonest Human Points

    | Contributor(s):: Shannon M. A. Kundey, Andres De Los Reyes, Jessica Arbuthnot, Rebecca Allen, Ariel Coshun, Sabrina Molina, Erica Royer

    Pointing is a conventional communicative gesture used by humans to direct others’ attention to an environmental feature. Several researchers have argued that pointing becomes so ingrained for humans from a young age that children often have difficulty interpreting the gesture in a novel...

  8. Dog Experts' Brains Distinguish Socially Relevant Body Postures Similarly in Dogs and Humans

    | Contributor(s):: Miiamaaria V. Kujala, Jan Kujala, Synnöve Carlson, Riitta Hari

    We read conspecifics' social cues effortlessly, but little is known about our abilities to understand social gestures of other species. To investigate the neural underpinnings of such skills, we used functional magnetic resonance imaging to study the brain activity of experts and non-experts...
