It is well known that animals generally have a heightened sense of smell and touch. In case of any natural disasters or accidents, some animals know in advance about them. In history there were many cases when animals sensed the impending danger much sooner than people. Such extraordinary capacity of the brothers our smaller most often used in scientific fields and in some cases help to prevent or prevent various ills, and they are also used in the sports industry.
In London in 2012, during the Olympic games, to predict the outcome used the ass Larry. He was given two buckets of food, which were photos of athletes and says “Yes” and “No”.

Of course, we can’t ask animals if they can see dreams, but we at least can say: we have evidence that this is likely. There are two methods used by scientists to solve this seemingly impossible task. The first method is to observe the physical behavior of animals during the different phases of the cycle “sleep-Wake”. The second is whether their brain in the sleep state similarly to how this state operates our brain. Continue reading
