A 'pebble test of anxiety' did not differentiate between Japanese quail divergently selected for stress and fear
Contributor(s):: Jones, R. B., Marin, R. H., Satterlee, D. G.
It has been suggested that the time taken by an individually tested domestic chick to begin pecking at pebbles on the floor of a novel arena might be used as a test of fear and anxiety, with low latencies to peck indicating low fear and vice versa, and as a potential selection criterion 'to...

A comparison of the calving behaviour of farmed adult and yearling red deer ( Cervus elaphus ) hinds
Contributor(s):: Wass, J. A., Pollard, J. C., Littlejohn, R. P.
Mortality of newborn red deer (Cervus elaphus) calves is a major concern on New Zealand farms, as perinatal losses average approximately 10% of calves born. Primiparous red deer (calving as yearlings) lose more calves than multiparous hinds (adults). We performed a study on yearling and adult red...
A counterbalanced version of Ainsworth's Strange Situation Procedure reveals secure-base effects in dog-human relationships
Contributor(s):: Palmer, R., Custance, D.
It has been proposed that the dog-human relationship constitutes an infantile-like attachment. However, previous empirical support based on Ainsworth's Strange Situation test has proved inconclusive due to order effects inherent in the original procedure. In particular, these order effects...

A note on behavioural response to a novel arena in lactating mice highly selected for litter size
Contributor(s):: Rauw, W. M.
In an earlier experiment it was found that adult non-reproductive virgin female mice from a line selected for 91 generations for high litter size at birth (S-line; about 20 pups per litter) showed similar or more locomotion activity in four novelty behavioural tests (open-field, runway, maze and...
A review of the behavioral and neurochemical consequences of early weaning in rodents. (Special Issue: Early Weaning.)

In mammals, mother-infant bonding is based on the dependence of the infant on the mother for sustenance, i.e., the infant suckles milk, but also involving a need for physical contact. Weaning is one of the most important events that occur in developing animals and the timing of natural weaning is...

Affecting affect effectively : investigating a haptic-affect platform for guiding physiological responses
| Contributor(s):: Joseph P. Hall
This thesis describes the development of a platform for touch-guided anxiety management via engagement with a robot pet. An existing physiological sensor suite and “Haptic Creature” robot pet are modified to influence user physiological responses through real-time interaction guided...
Aggression, fearfulness and coping styles in female pigs
| Contributor(s):: Janczak, A. M., Pedersen, L. J., Bakken, M.
The coping styles hypothesis states that animals have consistent behavioural and physiological coping responses that can be characterised on a continuum from reactive to proactive. According to this hypothesis, animals can be characterised by consistency in responses across social and non-social...

| Contributor(s):: Pageat, P., Lafont, C., Falewee, C., Bonnafous, L., Gaultier, E., Silliart, B.
Defining objective, reproducible and standardized parameters for the evaluation of patients is one of the main academic focuses of veterinary behaviour medicine. Prolactin, a peptidic neurohormone and a cytokine, whose main regulator is dopamine, seems to be of particular interest in relation to...

An examination of the relations between human attachment, pet attachment, depression, and anxiety
| Contributor(s):: Quinn, Aaron Christopher
The roles of pets in families and their positive impact on mood have been reported by some studies (Becker, 1999; Garrity, Stallones, Marx, & Johnson, 1989). Additionally, some research has found that the more attached humans are to their pets, the more they feel emotionally supported...
