A new study shows that dogs can understand people after all.

Posted: Updated:

A new study shows that dogs can understand people after all. Researchers in Hungary have been training dogs to sit still for MRI's to look at their brain wave activity. Trainers spoke words both familiar and unfamiliar to the dogs. Brain scans show that dogs can process familiar words correctly, regardless of tone and how they sound. This means that they understand the words. It turns out, dogs process words in a similar way that humans do.
