The Importance of Dogs in Psychology Research - ... But what skills do dogs really share with humans. Dogs, much like children, can discriminate between objects. But this does not only refer to objects that are obviously different, e.g. a ball and a stick, but studies reveal that dogs can discriminate between black and white stimuli (Burman et al., 2011) and objects that differ only in size (Milgram, 2003). But their skills go beyond simple discrimination: dogs can learn to categorize objects, even under difficult conditions, for example, in 2D on a computer screen (Range, Aust, Steurer & Huber, 2007); they can learn names for objects or use referential cues to retrieve them....   [tags: eye-tracking technology] 928 words

The Destructive Nature of Societal Expectations - The expectations of one’s surroundings shape who he or she is. Whether it is requirements from parents, society, or oneself, these pressures determine a person’s decisions and their behaviour.
