Animal cognition and emotions

Since animals are sentient beings, studying emotions has also become imperative to fully understand the animal mind.


Clinical studies of novel veterinary medicines connect our work to veterinary patients and translational medicine. Improving our knowledge of the functions of dogs’ mind is most valuable because these animals live in our homes and share our life style. To fully understand dogs and other animals we must also have basic information on their emotions.
