Preliminary data are presented suggesting the existence of MMN, recorded using a minimally-invasive procedure equivalent to that used in humans, in unrestrained, unanaesthetised dogs. This is the first example of this ERP component in dogs and the method has substantial utility for future research exploring auditory, olfactory, and visual discrimination tasks, development, and breed differences. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
