科学家希望,脸部的识别会帮助他们理解神经变性疾病。
The researchers showed the sheep pictures of people on two computer screens.One screen had an unknown person and the other had one of four famous people.
科学家们给一只羊看了两台电脑显示屏上的图片。其中一个显示屏上是一个不知名的人,而另一张上四个知名人物中的一个。
The animals were given food for choosing the photograph of the famous person.They chose the correct photograph by breaking an infrared beam near the flat surface showing the photo.
如果培训中的羊能选出知名人物的照片,就会得到食物。羊选择正确照片的方式是打断显示正确照片所在屏幕附近的红外光束。
If they chose the wrong image, an electric signaling device would make a sound, and the sheep would receive no treat.

The sheep were less successful when presented with the faces at a new angle or from a different direction.However, the researchers said the performance of the animals on this test was similar to the levels seen when humans took the test.
不过,如果给羊从新的角度或者不同的方向展示面部照片时,羊的表现就不那么尽如人意。对此,科学家表示,羊类在此次实验中的表现与人类参加此类测试所展现的水平相似。
Scientists aim to use the sheep as models to study disorders of the brain, such as Huntington’s disease.This disorder develops over a long period of time and affects the brain’s ability to work.
科学家的目标是用羊类做示范,来研究人类大脑的紊乱现象,比如亨廷顿氏舞蹈病。这种紊乱会长期发病,影响大脑的运转能力。
