Science Says Dogs Can Understand Humans, So Tell Them All Your Deepest Darkest Secrets

A new study has found proof that dogs can understand human language. We knew it!

The research conducted at the Eotvos Lorand University in Budapest, and led by Dr Attila Andics, scanned the brains of 13 dogs trained to lie in MRI scanners and monitored what happened as they listened to their owners speak to them.

The study revealed that dogs know the difference between genuine praise and meaningless words and that just like humans, dogs used different parts of the brain to understand language.

Dr Andics said: “We’ve found that in dog brains, very similarly to what was found in the human brain, the left hemisphere is more involved in processing meaningful words,” he said.

“We’ve found the right hemisphere auditory brain region will respond differently to praising intonation and neutral intonation, independently of word meaning.”

You hear that?! Dogs can understand us! So start telling them all your deepest and darkest secrets.
