Awake fMRI reveals a specialized region in dog temporal cortex for face processing
Recent behavioral evidence suggests that dogs, like humans and monkeys, are capable of visual face recognition. But do dogs also exhibit specialized cortical face regions similar to humans and monkeys? Using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) in six dogs trained to remain motionless during scanning without restraint or sedation, we found a region in the canine temporal lobe that responded significantly more to movies of human faces than to movies of everyday objects. Next, using a newdoi:10.7287/peerj.preprints.1071v1 fatcat:os572qilgvaq5jq5if5vtjz5hm
