Next time you get home late and your dog looks at you with a disappointed yet confused stare – you’re getting the message, loud and clear. Science has proven that your beloved four-legged companion can tell time.
Northwestern University conducted a study that proves to us that certain neurons in their brain light-up when mammals are expecting something (food, walks, owner to come home). This is common to all mammals, not just dogs and cats.
The study tested animals that were dependent on space and time, not something they saw. Based upon ‘spacial memory’ this is very telling information. However researchers believe that it also can be applied to human research for treatments for Alzheimer’s.
Food, exercise, and companionship are the pillars to an animals contentment. Why are humans hardwired to complicate the simplicity of it all? Be the dog. Focus on the stuff that naturally satisfies you.
