How Dogs Process Words
Scientists at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, have conducted one of the first studies using brain imaging of dogs to figure out how they process words, specifically words they've been taught to associate objects like a ball. Neuroscientist Gregory Berns says, "We know that dogs have the capacity to process at least some aspects of human language since they can learn to follow verbal commands but, previous research suggests dogs may rely on many other cues to follow a verbal command such as gaze, gestures and even emotional expressions from their owners."
