Dogs are a valued part of almost 70 million American households. Yet, in terms of behavior and cognition, they have only become a serious subject of scientific study in the last 20 years. Similarly, we have recently witnessed a sharp increase in studies of canine-human interaction, exploring the motivational, emotional, cognitive, physiological, and neural mechanisms of dogs on human psychology and well-being. The primary goal of this symposium is to bring together researchers from psychology, biology, neuroscience, anthropology, and social work to delve deeper into the canine-human bond.
