Faces more important for people than dogs, study shows

FACES are more important for humans than dogs, according to a brain activity study on how the two species see each other published yesterday by a team of Hungarian and Mexican researchers.

“The brain imaging findings in the study suggest that faces may be of crucial importance to humans and probably other primates, but not to all mammals, for example not for dogs,” Attila Andics, who led the study at Eotvos Lorand university in Budapest, told AFP.
