  4. Olfactory-based interspecific recognition of human emotions: Horses (Equus ferus caballus) can recognize fear and happiness body odour from humans (Homo sapiens)

    Contributor(s):: Sabiniewicz, Agnieszka, Tarnowska, Karolina, Świątek, Robert, Sorokowski, Piotr, Laska, Matthias

    Emotional recognition has been demonstrated to occur between members of different species. However, the majority of studies on interspecific communication of emotions so far focused on the senses of vision and hearing while the contribution of the sense of smell has rarely been studied in this...

  5. Tail postures and tail motion in pigs: A review

    Contributor(s):: Camerlink, Irene, Ursinus, Winanda W.

    Animals’ tail posture and motion play an important role in communication, amongst others. In domestic pigs, the debate around tail docking and tail biting has made the tail an important research topic, and tail-related behaviour is increasingly proposed as a welfare indicator. While the focus is...

  6. Empathy in dogs: With a little help from a friend – a mixed blessing

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Sabrina Karl, Ludwig Huber

    Kujala (2017) presents an extensive overview of existing research on canine emotions in comparison to those of other non-human animals and humans. This commentary provides some additional research results on the intensively debated field of empathy in dogs. We focus on recent advances in...

  7. Do my treatment decisions make me a 'bad' pet owner?

  8. The Impact of Equine-Assisted Therapy on Equine Behavioral and Physiological Responses

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Tiago Mendonça, Cécile Bienboire-Frosini, Fanny Menuge, Julien Leclercq, Céline Lafont-Lecuelle, Sana Arroub, Patrick Pageat

    Equine-assisted therapies (EATs) have been widely used in the treatment of patients with mental or physical conditions. However, studies on the influence of equine-assisted therapy (EAT) on equine welfare are very recent, and the need for further research is often highlighted. The aim of this...

  9. Toward a Choice-Based Judgment Bias Task for Horses

    | Contributor(s):: Hintze, Sara, Roth, Emma, Bachmann, Iris, Würbel, Hanno

    Judgment bias tasks for nonhuman animals are promising tools to assess emotional valence as a measure of animal welfare. In view of establishing a valid judgment bias task for horses, the present study aimed to evaluate 2 versions (go/no-go and active choice) of an auditory judgment bias task for...

  10. My Reflections on Understanding Animal Emotions for Improving the Life of Animals in Zoos

    | Contributor(s):: Grandin, Temple

    Scientists are often reluctant to attribute emotions to nonhuman animals that are similar to human emotions. When the author published her early studies, reviewers prohibited the word fear. Fearful behavior had to be described as agitated. The core emotional systems described by Panksepp may...

  11. Young Children’s Interpretation of Dogs’ Emotions and Their Intentions to Approach Happy, Angry, and Frightened Dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Aldridge, Grace L., Rose, Sarah E.

    The current study aimed to investigate the extent to which young children’s risk of being bitten by a dog is explained by their inability to recognize the dog’s emotion and to behave appropriately around dogs. One hundred and seventeen children, aged 4 to 7 years, were shown 15 images and 15...

  12. Factors affecting the Human Attribution of Emotions toward Animals

    | Contributor(s):: Wilkins, Abbie M., McCrae, Lucy S., McBride, E. Anne

    Attribution of emotions to animals can affect human–animal interactions and dictate animal welfare laws. However, little is known about the factors that influence these attributions. We investigated the effect of belief in animal mind, pet ownership, emotional intelligence, eating orientation,...

  13. A review of behavioural methods to study emotion and mood in pigs, Sus scrofa

    | Contributor(s):: Murphy, Eimear, Nordquist, Rebecca E., van der Staay, Franz Josef

    The study of emotions in animals is of increasing importance to a number of disciplines such as animal welfare science and affective neuroscience. Pigs are a common farm animal species, most often reared in intensive systems. Moreover, they are increasingly being used in laboratories. To...

  14. Responses of conventional pigs and Göttingen miniature pigs in an active choice judgement bias task

    | Contributor(s):: Murphy, Eimear, Nordquist, Rebecca E., van der Staay, Franz Josef

    Pigs are commonly kept in intensive farming systems. Their use as model animals in biomedical research has increased. Both conditions may impact upon their welfare. Recent definitions of welfare emphasize the importance of emotion. Mood congruent biases in judgement have been proposed as proxy...

  15. Rescued goats at a sanctuary display positive mood after former neglect

    | Contributor(s):: Briefer, Elodie F., McElligott, Alan G.

    Moods influence cognitive processes in that people in positive moods expect more positive events to occur and less negative ones (“optimistic bias”), whereas the opposite happens for people in negative moods (“pessimistic bias”). The evidence for an effect of mood on cognitive bias is also...

  16. Environmental enrichment and cognitive complexity in reptiles and amphibians: Concepts, review, and implications for captive populations

    | Contributor(s):: Burghardt, Gordon M.

    Reptiles and amphibians have been neglected in research on cognition, emotions, sociality, need for enriched and stimulating environments, and other topics that have been greatly emphasized in work on mammals and birds. This is also evident in the historic lack of enriching captive environments...

  17. Emotional contagion in dogs as measured by change in cognitive task performance

    | Contributor(s):: Sümegi, Zsófia, Oláh, Katalin, Topál, József

    Domestic dogs are living with humans in a very special inter-species relationship. Previous studies have shown physiological and hormonal synchronisation between dogs and their owners during positive interaction. Dogs are also known to be able to discriminate human emotions and they were also...

  18. The emergence of emotional lateralization: Evidence in non-human vertebrates and implications for farm animals

    | Contributor(s):: Leliveld, Lisette M. C., Langbein, Jan, Puppe, Birger

    The study and protection of animal welfare are based on the assumption that animals are sentient beings, capable of experiencing emotions. Still, our understanding of animal emotions is limited. In this review we focus on the potential of cerebral-lateralization research to provide new insights...

  19. Effects of signalled reward type, food status and a μ-opioid receptor antagonist on cue-induced anticipatory behaviour in laying hens (Gallus domesticus)

    | Contributor(s):: Moe, Randi Oppermann, Nordgreen, Janicke, Janczak, Andrew M., Spruijt, Berry M., Bakken, Morten

    Studies using classical conditioning have shown that hens display high frequencies of dopamine-controlled cue-induced anticipatory behaviours in the cue-reward interval when signalling mealworm rewards. However, it is not known whether anticipatory behaviours are reward specific, and whether the...

  20. Disrupting motivational sequences in chicks: Are there affective consequences?

    | Contributor(s):: Seehuus, Birgitte, Mendl, Mike, Keeling, Linda J., Blokhuis, Harry

    The ‘reward cycle’ conceptualises reward acquisition as a cyclic phenomenon divided into three motivational stages with related emotional or affective states. For feeding behaviour such a cycle consists of an appetitive stage characterised by foraging and exploration linked to emotions such as...
