    Contributor(s):: Beltzung, Benjamin, Pelé, Marie, Renoult, Julien P., Shimada, Masaki, Sueur, Cédric

    Drawings have been widely used as a window to the mind; as such, they can reveal some aspects of the cognitive and emotional worlds of other animals that can produce them. The study of non-human drawings, however, is limited by human perception, which can bias the methodology and interpretation...

  6. Habit Formation and the Effect of Repeated Stress Exposures on Cognitive Flexibility Learning in Horses

    Contributor(s):: Henshall, Cathrynne, Randle, Hayley, Francis, Nidhish, Freire, Rafael

    Horse training exposes horses to an array of cognitive and ethological challenges.

    Understanding the foundations of the neurobiology of behavior and well-being can help us better achieve animal welfare. Behavior is the expression of several physiological, endocrine, motor and emotional responses that are coordinated by the central nervous system from the processing of internal...

  9. Levels of communication: The talking horse experiments

    | Contributor(s):: Gethmann, D.

    In the early twentieth century, counting and speaking horses, like the famous Clever Hans or the "Horses of Elberfeld," became widely debated subjects in experimental psychology. The idea was to determine whether their learning success was only a fraud, or if it might open up a new chapter in...

  10. Overimitation in dogs: is there a link to the quality of the relationship with the caregiver?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Huber, L., Kubala, D., Cimarelli, G.

    Overimitation, the copying of causally irrelevant or non-functional actions, is well-known from humans but completely absent in other primates. Recent studies from our lab have provided evidence for overimitation in canines. Previously, we found that half of tested pet dogs copied their human...

  11. Does benchmarking of rating scales improve ratings of search performance given by specialist search dog handlers?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Clark, C. C. A., Rooney, N. J.

    Rating scales are widely used to rate working dog behavior and performance. Whilst behaviour scales have been extensively validated, instruments used to rate ability have usually been designed by training and practitioner organizations, and often little consideration has been given to how...
