Dogs use same parts of brain to process speech as humans

                The article I read is “Dogs use same parts of brain to process speech as humans.” This article is about a research project done on dogs in Budapest. The issue in this text is whether dogs process speech similarly to how humans process speech, or if they don’t. After reading the article I think the conclusion is that they do.

1. Dogs use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words.

2.  Dogs use the right hemisphere of the brain to process intonations.

3. Humans use the left hemisphere of the brain to process words

4. Humans use the right hemisphere of the brain to process intonations.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

5. Therefore dogs process speech similarly to how humans process speech.

                I am convinced by the author’s conclusion, because I’m not an expert when it comes to the brain, so I can’t really say whether this article is wrong or correct, but there’s a decent amount of information in this text and the text shows that there was research done, so it is pretty convincing to me.
