Dogs have evolved with man for over 15,000 years and understanding what they are thinking and feeling is of interest to anyone who owns a dog. Gregory Berns is a Distinguished Professor of Neuroeconomics at Emory University in Atlanta, America. He wanted to improve our understanding of how the mammalian brain works by decoding the dogs' mind. 

Phillip Adams spoke with Gregory Berns about his amazing research experience and what his study has revealed about dogs. Berns has also studied the brains of other animals like dolphins and the extinct thylacine, commonly referred to as the Tasmanian tiger.
