Oliver Sacks talks about music triggering memory in amnesia cases

I believe that dogs also have a memory and a preference for certain pieces of music and certain styles of music. They definitely pick up on the emotional content of the music. More research needs to be done on the subject that tone of voice, pitch and rhythm has a similar, if not exactly the same effect on all sentient beings.

  1. How adorable! Such manners for Nono and Sia. Very creative on the adults end.

  3. Actually my friend and website designer Kendra Dixson was the person who sent me the video. So 99% of the credit goes to her!

  4. Hee hee, well a good friend of mine forwarded it to me so the list goes on. I think it is so cute and I’m amazed at how well the dogs are behaved, although you do see a little help from the human hands so they don’t dive their noses into their dish. lol

  5. yes the dogs are great! I also liked HOW they helped the dogs by pretending it was a human “putting your chin in your hands” gesture. It is most entertaining.
