Do Our Dogs Understand Human Speech?

Do Our Dogs Understand Human Speech ?

Your dog really does know what you’re saying, and a brain scan shows how

Your dog gets you. I mean, he really gets you.  Dogs understand human speech more than we realized.

No, really — he actually does. So say scientists in Hungary, who have published a groundbreaking study that found dogs understand both the meaning of words and the intonation used to speak them. Put simply: Even if you use a very excited tone of voice to tell the dog he’s going to the vet, he’ll probably see through you and be bummed about going.

There was a WONDERFUL article in the Washington Post yesterday.  Man has always wondered how much our dog’s truly understand what we are saying. Now with the help of a brain scan — we know more.

Yes, your dog understands human speech more than you realize

It had already been established that dogs respond to human voices better than their wolf brethren, are able to match hundreds of objects to words and learn elements of grammar, and can be directed by human speech. But the new findings mean dogs are more like humans than was previously known: They process language using the same regions of the brain as people, according to the researchers, whose paper was published in Science.

This had already been demonstrated in studies that observed dogs, but no one had seen how it works inside the canine brain. To determine this, Attila Andics and colleagues at Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest recruited 13 family dogs — mostly golden retrievers and border collies — and trained them to sit totally still for seven minutes in an fMRI scanner that measured their brain activity. (The pups were not restrained, and they “could leave the scanner at any time,” the authors assured.)
