Looking for relief after a long workday and commute? Spending some time with your pet is good for them and your brain!
Approximately 100 million households in the U.S. have pets. Research has shown that blood pressure and other stress indicators drop and that your brain sends out a burst of feel-good chemicals when you pet Lassie. Interestingly, petting others’ animals do not emit the same positive reactions. University of Missouri researchers have been studying human responses to a robot dog. They are curious to see if humans can respond positively to a mechanical pet!  From Day In The Life Of Your Brain, The Scientific American, by Judith Horstman
