Do dogs really love us?
About two years back, Gregory Berns, a professor of neuroeconomics, taught his dog, Callie, a shelter-rescued rat terrier, to walk into a (MRI) machine and sit there without moving, until scientists got thousands of images of her brain in order to map it, Stuff.co.nz reported.
His quest began after he lost his 14-year-old pug, Newton.
Berns first-ever brain scans of non-sedated dogs revealed that a brain region that in humans lights up in anticipation of something pleasurable also lights up in dogs when the dogs are given scents of their humans. ( ANI )
