我们给他们喂食，让他们在床上睡觉，和他们一起玩，甚至和他们聊天。 当然，我们爱他们。 任何养狗的人都会告诉你，他们的宠物具有理解周围世界的非凡能力。 他们是对的。 科学家们找到了一种很好的方法，可以准确地找出人类最好的朋友有什么能力。 在过去的几年中，人类对狗狗认知的最大进步之一就是使用MRI机器扫描狗的大脑。 MRI代表磁共振成像，它是通过外部刺激不断照亮大脑哪些部分的过程。 众所周知，狗狗的父母都非常容易训练狗。 这种可训练的性质使狗成为MRI机器的理想候选者，这与鸟类或熊等非驯养的野生动物不同。
We feed them, let them sleep in bed, play with them, and even chat with them. Of course, we love them. Anyone who keeps a dog will tell you that their pet has the extraordinary ability to understand the world around you. They are right. Scientists have found a good way to accurately identify the capabilities of human best friends. One of the biggest advances in human cognition in dogs over the past few years has been the use of MRI machines to scan the dog’s brain. MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging, which is the process of constantly illuminating which parts of the brain through external stimuli. It is well known that it is very easy for a dog’s parents to train a dog. This trainable nature makes dogs an ideal candidate for MRI machines, unlike non-domestic wild animals such as birds or bears.
