RESEARCH
Emory neuroscientist explores 'What It's Like to Be a Dog'
Emory professor Gregory Berns was the first to capture images of actual canine thought processes by training dogs to remain still and alert while undergoing fMRI. His new book, "What It's Like to Be a Dog," focuses on his hope that understanding how animals think will revolutionize how we treat them.
