out of 5 stars
| Contributor(s):: Henning Richter, Patrick R. Kircher, Fabiola B. Joerger, Erika Bruellmann, Matthias Dennler
Objective: To assess the feasibility of myocardial perfusion analysis in healthy dogs using dynamic contrast-enhanced cardiac magnetic resonance (DCE-MR) imaging at rest and during simulated stress with two doses of adenosine. Animals: Ten healthy beagle...
Clinical Findings in Dogs Trained for Awake-MRI
| Contributor(s):: Gregory S. Berns, Mark Spivak, Sarah Nemanic, Nicole Northrup
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...

Presumed Caudal Cerebellar Artery Infarction in Three Cats: Neurological Signs, MRI Findings, and Outcome
| Contributor(s):: Katie Osborn, Arianna Negrin, Olivier N. J. Taeymans, Sarah E. Spencer, Guinio B. Cherubini
Ischemic cerebrovascular disease (CVD) is a relatively common condition in dogs but infrequent in cats, with acute or peracute onset of non-progressive neurological signs. Cerebellar artery infarction appears to be very uncommon in cats, with only two cases reported affecting the rostral...

How Dogs Love Us: Dr. Gregory Berns at TEDxAtlanta
| Contributor(s):: Dr. Gregory Berns
Dr. Gregory Berns is revealing how our mind works, helping us to explore unknown connections along the way. Using advanced brain imaging technologies in his extensive research, Dr. Gregory Berns has helped us better understand human motivation and decision-making. His most recent work explores...
Patterns of brain activation when mothers view their own child and dog: an fMRI study
| Contributor(s):: Stoeckel, L. E., Palley, L. S., Gollub, R. L., Niemi, S. M., Evins, A. E.
Neural substrates underlying the human-pet relationship are largely unknown. We examined fMRI brain activation patterns as mothers viewed images of their own child and dog and an unfamiliar child and dog. There was a common network of brain regions involved in emotion, reward, affiliation, visual...

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...

Relationships between pathology and pain severities: a review
| Contributor(s):: Gregory, N. G.
The relationships between pathology severity and pain severity are reviewed using the literature available for humans. The aim is to help veterinary radiologists, physicians and pathologists recognise the disorders in which severity of a lesion is likely to be related to the severity of pain or...
The welfare and scientific advantages of non-invasive imaging of animals used in biomedical research
| Contributor(s):: Hudson, M.
At present, animal experimentation remains central to our understanding of human disease-related processes and of the biological effects of many substances. Traditional experiments have relied heavily on invasive techniques to monitor changes in blood biochemistry, tissue structure or function,...
