Behaviour Bible : Chapter 1 : Verse 3

This verse is the first of two that focuses on the brain. Setting the stage for understanding why neuroscience, affective neuroscience and behavioural neuroscience has hit the big time in the canine industry in the last 10 years. This lens looks at the biology of the brain and helps practitioners to understand what the canine brain looks like, where different sort of action takes place as well as what we can do to enhance brain development.

It wouldn’t be a Behaviour Bible verse if it didn’t come with some additional treats. In this course we have the additional pleasure of an interview with Fair Vassoler a PHD neuroscientist from Tufts university as well as a unique delve into world of MRI scans: is neuroimaging really the best way to understand the mind of our canine partners?

This course covers:

  • Brain Anatomy
  • A review of the hemisphere
  • Brain Makeup
  • Neurological systems
  • How learning happens and what we can do to encourage it
  • How this applies to the dogs in your care
  • A deep dive into MRI scanning
  • An in depth interview with an expert canine neuroscientist
