A review of video-based pig behavior recognition
Contributor(s):: Yang, Qiumei, Xiao, Deqin
Video surveillance technology has been applied in many farms and a large amount of video data has been generated. Extracting valuable information about the pig industry from video data is a challenging problem. Pig behavior recognition is one of the research hotspots. In order to facilitate...

Using automated image analysis in pig behavioural research: Assessment of the influence of enrichment substrate provision on lying behaviour
Contributor(s):: Nasirahmadi, Abozar, Edwards, Sandra A., Matheson, Stephanie M., Sturm, Barbara
Visual monitoring of pig behaviours over long periods is very time consuming and has possibility for observer bias. Automated image processing techniques now give the potential to carry out behavioural research in a more effective way. To illustrate this, an image processing technique was applied...

Neural correlates for perception of companion animal photographs
| Contributor(s):: Hayama, S., Chang, L., Gumus, K., King, G. R., Ernst, T.
| Contributor(s):: Maija Astikainen
The thesis One-Dog Policy consists of production and written parts. The thesis discusses pet dogs and the side effects of dog keeping, like decorating and dyeing dogs. The principle idea is that the dog is seen as a human-like creature. The thesis approaches images of dogs on the basis of...
The power of automated behavioural homecage technologies in characterizing disease progression in laboratory mice: a review
| Contributor(s):: Richardson, C. A.
Behavioural changes that occur as animals become sick have been characterized in a number of species and include the less frequent occurrence of 'luxury behaviours' such as playing, grooming and socialization. 'Sickness behaviours' or behavioural changes following exposure to infectious agents,...

Welfare by the ear: comparing relative durations and frequencies of ear postures by using an automated tracking system in sheep
| Contributor(s):: Vogeli, S., Wechsler, B., Gygax, L.
Given the increased interest in animal emotional reactions for assessing welfare, indicators for such reactions are sought. Ear postures and movements have been found to be promising indicators of emotional states in sheep and other animals. The manual recording of ear postures, however, is very...
Video analysis of dogs suffering from anxiety when left home alone and treated with clomipramine
| Contributor(s):: Cannas, S., Frank, D., Minero, M., Aspesi, A., Benedetti, R., Palestrini, C.
This study sought to film dogs with separation anxiety when left home alone while undergoing treatment with clomipramine and to compile objective information on behaviors exhibited. Twenty-three dogs ranging in age from 5 months to 9 years (mean, 32 years) were included. The dogs were filmed when...

Video analysis of dogs with separation-related behaviors
| Contributor(s):: Palestrini, C., Minero, M., Cannas, S., Rossi, E., Frank, D.
Separation-related behaviors are described as problematic behaviors that occur exclusively in the owner's absence or virtual absence. Diagnosis is generally based on indirect evidence such as elimination or destruction that occurs during owner absence. Questionnaire studies are based on owner...

The welfare and scientific advantages of non-invasive imaging of animals used in biomedical research
| Contributor(s):: Hudson, M.
At present, animal experimentation remains central to our understanding of human disease-related processes and of the biological effects of many substances. Traditional experiments have relied heavily on invasive techniques to monitor changes in blood biochemistry, tissue structure or function,...
