Dog brains divide language tasks much like humans do | Science News

Dogs process speech much like people do, a new study finds. Meaningful words like “good boy” activate the left side of a dog’s brain regardless of tone of voice, while a region on the right side of the brain responds to intonation, scientists report in the Sept. 2 Science.

Similarly, humans process the meanings of words in the left hemisphere of the brain, and interpret intonation in the right hemisphere.
