        Dogs' eyes evolve to appeal to humans 研究發現:狗眼進化為吸引人的注意力

        如果你覺得一只狗的眼睛似乎在告訴你一件事情或通過眼神得到你的注意,那么這可能是狗眼睛周圍的肌肉出現了進化。研究人員發現,這樣的進化使得它們能夠做出對人類特別有吸引力的表情。

        文字稿

        If a dog has eyes that seem to be telling you something or demanding your attention, it could be evolution's way of manipulating your feelings, because researchers have identified a muscle that allows dogs to create a puppy eyes expression that helps them bond with their human companions.

        如果一只狗的眼睛似乎在告訴你一件事情或希望得到你的注意,那么這可能是進化用它獨有的方式在操縱人類的情緒,因為研究人員發現了一個可以讓狗模仿幼犬可愛眼神的肌肉,以幫助它們與人類伙伴建立情感聯結。

        Doctor Julianne Kaminski at the University of Portsmouth says this wide-eyed and sometimes melancholy expression seems to elicit a strong nurturing response. The scientists say there is compelling evidence that this physical change have evolved since dogs were domesticated.

        樸茨茅斯大學的朱莉安娜·卡明斯基博士說,這種睜大眼睛,時而憂郁的表情似乎能引起強烈的愛撫性反應。科學家們說,有令人信服的證據表明,自從狗被馴化以來,這種生理變化已發生了進化。
