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...
