Human and dog brains process sounds in similar ways, and this may allow the two species to understand each other’s emotions.

According to the scientists Dogs and humans have the same “voice areas” in their brains, and these areas are responsible for understanding and interpreting both dog and human sounds.

The way dogs and humans process emotionally loaded sounds is very similar. The presence of voice areas in both dog and human brains suggests this region existed in an ancestor of the two species that lived as long ago as 100 million years ago.
