What It's Like to Be A Dog
And Other Adventures in Animal NeuroscienceBook - 2017
What is it like to be a dog? A bat? Or a dolphin? To find out, neuroscientist Gregory Berns and his team began with a radical step: they 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. And dogs were just the beginning. In What It's Like to Be a Dog, Berns explores the fascinating inner lives of wild animals from dolphins and sea lions to the extinct Tasmanian tiger. This book will fundamentally reshape how we think about-- and treat-- animals. Groundbreaking and deeply humane, it is essential reading for animal lovers of all stripes.
