What an fMRI scan shows us... We already know that dogs can understand 150 words on average1, but are they capable of understanding other types of communication? Are they able to recognize human facial cues and emotions, such as when we smile, frown, or cry? Raúl Hernández-Pérez, Luis Concha, and Laura V. Chaya investigated whether dogs can differentiate different human facial expressions by using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI)2, which is a type of noninvasive brain mapping technique. The researchers examined the brain scans of seven domestic dogs who were shown happy, sad, angry, or fearful faces of humans they did not recognize. The results of the brain scans suggested that happy facial expressions elicited the strongest response in the dogs' brains. After viewing happy faces, the activity in the dogs’ temporal cortex was heightened. The temporal cortex is thought to be responsible for processing visual information, including faces in humans and animals.  Hernandez-Pérez and his colleagues concluded that “human emotions are specifically represented in dogs’ brains, highlighting their importance for inner-species communication.” Talking Button Kits This study is an essential step toward further understanding the communication between dogs and humans, and the similarities in observing and processing facial expressions. However, facial expressions generally convey a broader message.
