  1. Anxiety Symptoms and Sleep Disturbance in Veterans with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder: The Impact of Receiving and Training a Service Dog

    Contributor(s):: Scotland-Coogan, Diane

  2. Shaping healthy habits in children with neurodevelopmental and mental health disorders: parent perceptions of barriers, facilitators and promising strategies

    Contributor(s):: Bowling, A., Blaine, R. E., Kaur, R., Davison, K. K.

  3. Heart Rate and Heart Rate Variability during Sleep in Family Dogs (Canis familiaris). Moderate Effect of Pre-Sleep Emotions

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Bence Varga, Anna Gergely, Agoston Galambos, Anna Kis

    It is common knowledge that negative emotions in humans are accompanied by both impaired subjective experience as well as maladaptive changes in behavior and physiology. The present paper investigates heart rate—one of the most commonly used emotion-related physiology measures—in...

  4. Gender-differences in social health concepts. A cross-sectional study on interpersonal stress, social support and companionship with dog: correlations to sleep-problems

    | Contributor(s):: Siv Elin Skille

    Background and overview: Social ties have profound effects on health and well-being, and men and women are found to differ in the concepts of it. Findings are however somewhat inconclusive on some aspects. This study contributes to existing knowledge about gender-differences in interpersonal...

  5. Therapeutic effects of dog visits in nursing homes for the elderly

    | Contributor(s):: Thodberg, Karen, Sørensen, Lisbeth Uhrskov, Christensen, Janne Winther, Poulsen, Pia Haun, Houbak, Birthe, Damgaard, Vibeke, Keseler, Ingrid, Edwards, David, Videbech, Poul B.

  6. The effect of lying motivation on cow behaviour

    | Contributor(s):: Norring, M., Valros, A.

    Cows in dairy barns spend time standing while waiting for milking, accessing feed and entering the resting area. It has been suggested that high yielding cows may represent a trade off situation regarding eating and lying particularly in systems where there is a long waiting period before...

  7. Effect of pet insects on the psychological health of community-dwelling elderly people: a single-blinded, randomized, controlled trial

    | Contributor(s):: Ko, H. J., Youn, C. H., Kim, S. H., Kim, S. Y.

    Background: There is evidence that animal-assisted therapy has positive effects on mental health, especially in elderly people. Caring for insects is easy, relatively inexpensive, and does not require much space. Objective: The aim of this 8-week randomized, controlled, single-blinded study was...

  8. Behaviour problems in pets

    | Contributor(s):: Richmond, R.

  9. The effects of witnessing managemental procedures during the light versus the dark phase of the light cycle on behaviour, performance and welfare of laboratory rats

    | Contributor(s):: Abou-Ismail, U. A., Mohamed, R. A., El-Kholya, S. Z.

    Research has indicated that witnessing managemental procedures are stressful to laboratory rats. Yet there has been little investigation into whether the time of witnessing these procedures affects behaviour and welfare in these animals. Ninety-six rats, representing two batches, were used in...

  10. 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,...

  11. 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,...

  12. The prevalence and implications of human-animal co-sleeping in an Australian sample

    | Contributor(s):: Smith, B., Thompson, K., Clarkson, L., Dawson, D.

    Sleep research is characterized by an interest in humans, with the realm of animal sleep left largely to ethologists and animal scientists. However, the lives of sleep-study participants and those with sleep problems frequently involve animals. For the majority of the population in developed...

  13. Never get sick!

    | Contributor(s):: Kirchheimer, Sid, Giralt, Steve

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

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

  15. Do horses gallop in their sleep? : consciousness, evolution, and the problem of animal minds

    | Contributor(s):: Cartmill, Matt

  16. REM sleep, energy balance and 'optimal foraging'

    | Contributor(s):: Horne, Jim

  17. Are the effects of enrichment due to the presence of multiple items or a particular item in the cages of laboratory rat?

    | Contributor(s):: Abou-Ismail, U. A.

    Although the effects of environmental enrichment on laboratory rodents have been extensively described, it is not yet known whether these effects were simply due to the presence of multiple items in the cage or due solely to the presence of a particular item. This experiment was therefore carried...

  18. 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...
