Dogs are renowned for their ability to identify and track objects by scent.
Now a new study is revealing the dogs enhance this talent with special brain structures that link it to how they see.
Researchers say vision and the sense of smell are connected in the brains of dogs, something not yet found in any other species.
The discovery suggests smell and vision in dogs are integrated in some way, although it’s not known how dogs experience the two senses functioning together.
The study is published in the journal Neuroscience.
