The Sensory World of Animals: The Neuroscience of Smell

Saturday, February 17, 2024

The webinar is suitable for pet owners, veterinary professionals, animal trainers, animal behaviorists, pet guardians, shelter and rescue staff and volunteers, and anyone with an interest in evidence-based behavior and training.

In this Webinar: 

A dog’s sense of smell is over 10,000 times more sensitive than a human’s! Smell has fascinating links to memory and emotions, as well as carrying information.

Join neuroscientist and science communicator Dr. Paula Croxson to explore the unique way that smells are processed in the brain, how animals process smells and how smells and behavior interact.
