A consideration of the role of biology and test design as confounding factors in judgement bias tests
Contributor(s):: Whittaker, Alexandra L., Barker, Timothy H.
The assessment of positive emotional states in animals has been advanced considerably through the use of judgement bias testing. JBT methods have now been reported in a range of species. Generally, these tests show good validity as ascertained through use of corroborating methods of affective...

Contributor(s):: Amira, A. Goma, Gareth, P. Pearce, Jashim, Uddin, Eloise, Rimon, Harriet, Davies, Clive, J. C. Phillips
Dairy cows' emotional state can sometimes be inferred from their behaviour, for example previous studies have suggested that those passing a novel person to the right are more likely to be anxious than those passing to the left. We undertook two studies of cow behaviour as they passed a novel...

A modified HET-CAM approach for biocompatibility testing of medical devices
Contributor(s):: Eder, C., Falkner, E., Mickel, M., Chiari-Grisar, C., Appl, H., Schoffl, H., Nehrer, S., Losert, U. M.
The implantation of new biomedical devices into living animals without any previous toxicity or biocompatibility evaluation is possible under current legislation. The HET-CAM (Hen Egg Test-Chorionallantoic Membrane) test offers a partially immunodeficient, borderline in vitro/in vivo test system...

The purpose of this study was to determine how co-mingling litters affected piglets' pre-weaning growth, ear injuries, suckling behaviour and responses to behavioural tests used to measure coping abilities. Thirty sows and their respective litters were housed in standard farrowing crates until...
