analyze the way the knowledge of nervous system to coordinate complex and intricate movements, has helped human to train dogs and domestic animals to perform specific task
Training is the application of behavior analysis, which uses the environmental events of antecedents and consequences to modify the behavior of an animal, either for it to assist in specific activities or undertake particular tasks, or for it to participate effectively in contemporary domestic life.
A dog learns from every interaction it has with its environment. The nervous system receives and integrates sensory input and formulates motor output. The cerebellum assists the learning of new motor skills. Two significant structures within the limbic system are the hippocampus and the amygdala, which are essential for learning and memory. Dogs can learn through classical conditioning, where it forms an association between two stimuli; non-associative learning, where its behavior is modified through habituation or sensitisation; and operant conditioning, where it forms an association between an antecedent and its consequence.
