  1. Effects of horseback riding exercise on the relative alpha power spectrum in the elderly

    Contributor(s):: Cho, S. H.

  2. Hemodynamic (fNIRS) and EEG (N200) correlates of emotional inter-species interactions modulated by visual and auditory stimulation

    Contributor(s):: Balconi, M., Vanutelli, M. E.

  3. Behaviour and beyond: three ways to examine dog cognitive processing

    Contributor(s):: Tiffani J. Howell

    Dog cognition research relies heavily on behavioural approaches in order to determine the nature and extent of dog cognitive abilities. These behavioural data have greatly advanced current understanding of dog cognitive abilities. While there has been much research exploring how dogs respond in...

  4. Agreement between different sleep states and behaviour indicators in dairy cows

    Contributor(s):: Ternman, E., Pastell, M., Agenas, S., Strasser, C., Winckler, C., Nielsen, P. P., Hanninen, L.

    Conclusive data regarding behavioural indicators of different sleep states in adult dairy cows are lacking, i.e. agreement between behavioural indicators of sleep and corresponding electrophysiological measures. Behavioural estimates for quantifying total sleep time in calves have been developed,...

  5. Evaluation of microwave energy as a humane stunning technique based on electroencephalography (EEG) of anaesthetised cattle

    Contributor(s):: Rault, J. L., Hemsworth, P. H., Cakebread, P. L., Mellor, D. J., Johnson, C. B.

    Humane slaughter implies that an animal experiences minimal pain and distress before it is killed. Stunning is commonly used to induce insensibility but can lead to variable results or be considered unsatisfactory by some religious groups. Microwave energy can induce insensibility in rats, and...

  6. A seizure response dog: video recording of reacting behaviour during repetitive prolonged seizures

    Contributor(s):: Di Vito, L., Naldi, I., Mostacci, B., Licchetta, L., Bisulli, F., Tinuper, P.

  7. Killing wild geese with carbon dioxide or a mixture of carbon dioxide and argon

    Contributor(s):: Gerritzen, M. A., Reimert, H. G. M., Lourens, A., Bracke, M. B. M., Verhoeven, M. T. W.

  8. Assessment of unconsciousness during slaughter without stunning in lambs

    Contributor(s):: Rodriguez, P., Velarde, A., Dalmau, A., Llonch, P.

  9. Pain perception at slaughter

    Contributor(s):: Johnson, C. B., Gibson, T. J., Stafford, K. J., Mellor, D. J.

  10. Sleep in dairy cows recorded with a non-invasive EEG technique

    Contributor(s):: Ternman, E., Hanninen, L., Pastell, M., Agenas, S., Nielsen, P. P.

  11. "Seizure-alert dogs": observations from an inpatient video/EEG unit

    Contributor(s):: Ortiz, R., Liporace, J.

  12. A review of pain assessment techniques and pharmacological approaches to pain relief after bovine castration: practical implications for cattle production within the United States. (Special Issue: Pain in farm animals.)

    Contributor(s):: Coetzee, J. F.

    Castration of male calves destined for beef production is a common livestock management practice in the United States amounting to approximately 7 million procedures per year. Recently there has been renewed interest in identifying methods to reduce pain associated with dehorning and castration....

  13. Predicting sleep and lying time of calves with a support vector machine classifier using accelerometer data

    Contributor(s):: Hokkanen, A. H., Hanninen, L., Tiusanen, J., Pastell, M.

    Sleep is essential to calves, but to date the only possibilities for measuring sleep in cattle production systems use ambulatory EEG or validated sleeping behavior assessments. We developed a small, neck-based, wireless accelerometer system for measuring the sleep and lying time of calves. We...

  14. Science and pseudoscience in developmental disabilities: guidelines for social workers

    Contributor(s):: Thyer, B. A., Pignotti, M.

  15. Effect of trained Seizure Alert Dogs on frequency of tonic-clonic seizures

    Contributor(s):: Strong, V., Brown, S., Huyton, M., Coyle, H.

  16. Assessing sleep state in calves through electrophysiological and behavioural recordings: a preliminary study

    Contributor(s):: Hanninen, L., Makela, J. P., Rushen, J., Passille, A. M. de, Saloniemi, H.

    Adequate sleep is important for the health and well being of animals but we lack non-invasive methods to record sleep states from group-housed, freely-moving farm animals. We used electrophysiological data (electroencephalography; EEG, electromyography; EMG, and electro-oculography; EOG) to...

  17. Effects of brief maternal separation in kids on neurohormonal and electroencephalographic parameters

    Contributor(s):: Bergamasco, L., Macchi, E., Facello, C., Badino, P., Odore, R., Pagliasso, S., Bellino, C., Osella, M. C., Re, G.

    In goat a selective and reciprocal mother-young bond is rapidly established at birth and persists even beyond the lactation period under natural conditions. Therefore physical separation of mother and young may result in psychobiological disturbance. Aim of this study was to assess quantitative...

  18. A pilot study to assess whether high expansion CO2;-enriched foam is acceptable for on-farm emergency killing of poultry

    Contributor(s):: Gerritzen, M. A., Sparrey, J.

    This pilot experiment was conducted to ascertain whether CO2-enriched high expansion foam could be an acceptable and efficient alternative in emergency killing of poultry. This method could have wide-ranging applications but with particular emphasis on small (backyard) flocks, free-range sheds or...

  19. Assessment of return to consciousness after electrical stunning in lambs

    Contributor(s):: Velarde, A., Ruiz-de-la-Torre, J. L., Rosello, C., Fabrega, E., Diestre, A., Manteca, X.

  20. Effect of amount and frequency of head-only stunning currents on the electroencephalogram and somatosensory evoked potentials in broilers

    Contributor(s):: Raj, A. B. M., O'Callaghan, M.

    The effectiveness of head-only electrical stunning of broilers, with a root mean square (RMS) current of 100 or 150 mA delivered using either 50, 400 or 1500 Hz sine wave alternating current (AC), was investigated. The changes occurring in the spontaneous electroencephalogram (EEG) were evaluated...
