"Do dogs experience emotions like people do? To find out, neuroscientist and bestselling author Gregory Berns and his team did something nobody had ever attempted: they trained dogs to go into an MRI scanner--completely awake--so they could figure out what they think and feel. But dogs were just the beginning. In [this book], Berns takes us into the brains and minds of wild animals: sea lions who can learn to dance, and dolphins who can see with sound..."--Jacket.
Neuroscientist Berns and his team taught dogs to go into an MRI scanner-- completely awake. They discovered what makes dogs individuals with varying capacities for self-control, different value systems, and a complex understanding of human speech. Here Berns explores the fascinating inner lives of wild animals from dolphins and sea lions to the extinct Tasmanian tiger. The team's findings will fundamentally reshape how we think about--and treat--animals.
