Dr. Brian Hare is a core member of the Center of Cognitive Neuroscience, a Professor in Evolutionary Anthropology, and Psychology and Neuroscience at Duke University. His Keynote Address, Is Your Dog a Genius?, was delivered at the Embark Canine Health Summit on 15 February 2021.
Dogs are unusual compared to other animals in how they cooperate and communicate with humans, and differences between individual dogs in these abilities can help inform how we select, breed, and train working dogs. Dr. Hare presented research comparing dogs to other species and data from the largest studies of dog emotion and cognition to reach his conclusions.
