From the Independent: "In a world-first experiment, academics in Hungary trained 13 dogs to voluntarily lie in an MRI scanner to monitor what happened in their brain when the researchers spoke to them.

They discovered that dogs’ brains process language in a similar way to humans, with the right side dealing with emotion and the left processing meaning. 

It was only when both sides of the brain agreed they were hearing praise that the dog was truly happy."

This may sound too good to be true, but the folks behind SuperMeat have found a way for humans to eat meat without killing animals. Here's how they do it:

"Using tissue engineering techniques refined from regenerative medicine, animal cells are incubated in an environment that mimics the natural body of the animal. The cells are then enriched with nutrients that help the cells thrive and divide, growing into a full meal-ready piece of animal meat."

If that doesn't quite explain it for you, just watch the video. And if you're passionate about their product, you can help them bring it to a store near you by donating to their Indiegogo campaign.
