  • The Importance Of Associative Learning

    As already stated earlier Zeus is a very obedient dog. He knows many tricks such as sit, lie down, roll over and he can even play dead. With the help of a dog’s favorite treat, one can teach them almost anything they’d like. However, it is more than likely that a dog will only learn something if he is getting rewarded for it. This can possibly be seen as a negative ability because if one was truly intelligent and learned with reasoning they could learn without reward or punishment, but many animals and even humans learn by associative learning. In replication of Pavlov’s experiment an unconditioned stimulus was paired with a neutral stimulus. After conditioning the later one will become the conditioned stimulus. Pavlov showed that a ring of a bell would trigger an association with the sight of food and cause a dog to salivate. Associative learning is the direct effect of the structure of the brain. Scientists reproduced this experiment and the output neuron from a NOMFET synapse activity models the dog’s salvation. At first the devise were programmed so that sight of food triggered salvation and the synapse stays below threshold. When both triggers are used simultaneously the synapse reaches its threshold and the association is made. The graph from this experiment shows that that the conductivity change by the presynaptic pulses alone is not enough to create association (Bichler, et al. 2013). Another form of learning common in dogs and many other animals is trial and error…

    types of animals according to habitat and body form” ( However, the first modern taxonomist was Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus, who came up with the binomial name for organisms in his work Species Plantarum. In order to classify an organism, you must first acquire DNA from the organism. Each taxonomic category differs from each other. For example, the Domain only has three groups but as you go down each category, the number of groups increases. The organism that…

  • Hound Case Study

    It is believed this "dog" type of "hound" was so common, it eventually became the prototype of the category "hound".[17] By the 16th century, dog had become the general word, and hound had begun to refer only to types used for hunting.[18] Hound, cognate to German Hund, Dutch hond, common Scandinavian hund, and Icelandic hundur, is ultimately derived from the Proto-Indo-European *kwon- "dog", found in Sanskrit kukuur (कुक्कुर),[19] Welsh ci (plural cwn), Latin canis, Greek kýōn, and Lithuanian…

  • Human Evolution Of Dogs

    hen you think of man’s best friend the name “Canis Lupus Familiaris” will most likely not come to mind. Canis Lupus Familiaris is the trinomial or subspecies name for the Canid species, the domestic dog (Yong, 2016). It is hard to believe that dogs such as toy or terrier breeds have derived from the grey wolf. To start the evolution of our many dog breeds today, we go back 10,000-30,000 years ago when the grey wolf walked all over the globe. Tribes and colonies during this time era encountered…
