Do You Listen As Well As A Dog?
Radio Corporation of RCA Victor logo. The logo gave me an idea to research a dog’s highly developed sense of hearing for this week’s Blue Brain Tips of the Month.
Since, many dogs have been part of our family, I was aware that dogs can hear frequencies well beyond human listening abilities. However, I did not know that the distance from which a dog can hear sound is 4 times further than a human and 4 times more attune than ours. They can register 35,000 vibrations per second and distinguish noises that for us sound the same.
The next bit of information sounds rather human to me… a dog’s hearing is selective and they can synchronize what they want to hear.
Our canine friends’ ear movements help to register the nature and source of a sound, because they have 17 muscles to move their ears? Humans only have 9 muscles. However, most of us only know how to use 1 or 2 of our ear muscles.
The following Blue Brain Color Clues will help you exercise the other 7 or 8 muscles in your ears.
1. Blue Brainers tell you how they “love” or “feel” about something or someone.
2. If you are at a social gathering, pay attention to the conversations, Blue Brainers inquire about your family and pets.
3. When concluding a professional phone conversation Blue Brainers say, “Take care.” When they are saying goodbye on a personal phone call they’ll say, “I love you”
Try exercising all 9 muscles in your ears to improve your listening skills and look for the Green Brain Color Clues next Monday!
