The ability to recognize dog emotions depends on the cultural milieu in which we grow up
| Contributor(s):: Amici, F., Waterman, J., Kellermann, C. M., Karimullah, K., Bräuer, J.
Inter-specific emotion recognition is especially adaptive when species spend a long time in close association, like dogs and humans. Here, we comprehensively studied the human ability to recognize facial expressions associated with dog emotions (hereafter, emotions). Participants were presented...
Mothers provide similar care to related and unrelated chicks in quail
| Contributor(s):: Aigueperse, Nadège, Houdelier, Cécilia, Nicolle, Céline, Lumineau, Sophie
Adoption is an usual procedure to experiment non-genomic influences on young development. However relatedness may be a variation factor of maternal behaviour who can recognize and/or discriminate her own young that non-related ones. Here we investigate the influence of relatedness on maternal and...

Pair-bonding and companion recognition in domestic donkeys, Equus asinus
| Contributor(s):: Murray, Leigh M. A., Byrne, Katharine, D’Eath, Richard B.
Pair and social bonding has been documented in various taxa, where pair formations are often described as being driven by kinship or sexual motivation. However, pair-bonding between unrelated individuals where sexual motivation is not a factor is not well documented. Many social relationships and...
Behavioural response of dairy cows with and without calf-contact to hair of own and alien calves presented in the milking parlour
| Contributor(s):: Zipp, Katharina A., Barth, Kerstin, Knierim, Ute
In systems where dairy cows are milked and additionally suckle their calves during the first months of lactation, problems with alveolar milk ejection during machine-milking occur. As olfaction is a key sense for kin recognition and acceptance at the udder, olfactory stimulation might alleviate...
Human Facial Recognition by Northern Mockingbirds
out of 5 stars
| Contributor(s):: Jessica A. Stehlin, Janice Crook-Hill, Brad Bailey
A number of studies have examined the ability of various animal species to recognize individual humans, but only a few have focused on native, non-captive birds. Previous research demonstrated that American Crows learn to recognize individual human faces. Other research indicated that Northern...
The Processing of Human Emotional Faces by Pet and Lab Dogs: Evidence for Lateralization and Experience Effects
| Contributor(s):: Anjuli L.A. Barber, Dania Randi, Corsin A. Müller, Ludwig Huber
From all non-human animals dogs are very likely the best decoders of human behavior. In addition to a high sensitivity to human attentive status and to ostensive cues, they are able to distinguish between individual human faces and even between human facial expressions. However, so far little...

How do miniature pigs discriminate between people? The effect of exchanging cues between a non-handler and their familiar handler on discrimination
| Contributor(s):: Koba, Y., Tanida, H.
During a 3-week handling period, six 8-week-old pigs were touched and fed raisins as a reward whenever they approached their handler, In subsequent training, the handlers and a non-handler wearing dark blue and white overalls, respectively, and wearing different eau de toilette fragrances sat at...
Chickens use visual cues in social discrimination: an experiment with coloured lighting
| Contributor(s):: D'Eath, R. B., Stone, R. J.
In an experiment to investigate the cues used in social recognition by laying hens, visual cues were manipulated by altering illumination. Hens from small flocks were allowed to choose to approach and feed next to a flock-mate or an unfamiliar hen. Hens were 84 weeks old having lived in the same...
Short-term social memory in the laboratory rat: its susceptibility to disturbance
| Contributor(s):: Burman, O. H. P., Mendl, M.
Adult rats presented with a juvenile conspecific for 5 min on 2 occasions, separated by a 15-min inter-exposure interval (IEI), investigated the reintroduced juvenile significantly less in the second encounter. It is suggested that this was because the adult rats remembered the identity of the...
Recognition in swine: recognition through familiarity or genetic relatedness?
| Contributor(s):: Stookey, J. M., Gonyou, H. W.
In the 1st experiment, 80 crossbred piglets from litters cross-fostered within 3 days of birth were regrouped in pens following weaning at 28 days of age. Each test group was composed of 2 siblings reared together, an unrelated piglet reared with the 2 siblings, a sibling reared apart, and an...
