Dr. Gregory Berns knows and will tell you why when he comes to the Litchfield Community Center for a TED-style talk on August 12. A dog-loving neuroscientist and best-selling author, he and his team did something nobody had ever attempted: they trained dogs to enter an MRI scanner, while completely awake, so they could figure out what the pets think and feel. Their subsequent discoveries provide some answers to the questions that bedevil all pet owners and are forcing us to redefine the difference between humans and other animals. Moderated by Jane Whitney. Special thanks to our generous sponsors. Gold Sponsors: The Glenmede Trust Company, Western Connecticut Health Network, Grace Mayflower Inn & Spa, 24/7 Wall St., Global Financial and Business News. Silver Sponsors: The Matthews Group, Drakeley Pool Company, LLC, Eckert Fine Art, Litchfield Distillery.

Tickets: Basic tickets are $45; “Angels on the Green” tickets are $250 per person and include preferred seating and the opportunity to meet Dr. Berns at a cocktail reception at the Litchfield Distillery immediately following the “Conversation.”
