  1. Equine-assisted therapeutic activities and their influence on the heart rate variability: A systematic review

    Contributor(s):: García-Gómez, A., Guerrero-Barona, E., García-Peña, I., Rodríguez-Jiménez, M., Moreno-Manso, J. M.

  2. The beneficial effects of horse trekking on autonomic nervous activity in experienced rider with no disability

    Contributor(s):: Matsuura, A., Maruta, H., Tomohiko Iwatake, Takashi Kumagai, Toshihiko Nakanowatari, Koichi Hodate

  3. Hippotherapy acute impact on heart rate variability non-linear dynamics in neurological disorders

    Contributor(s):: Cabiddu, R.

  4. Evaluation of a novel rodenticide: acute sub-lethal effects of a methaemoglobin-inducing agent

    Contributor(s):: Quy, R. J., Gibson, T. J., Lambert, M. S., Eason, C. T., Gregory, N. G.

    In a series of experiments the welfare of para-aminovalerophenone (PAVP) sub-lethally poisoned rats ( Rattus norvegicus) was assessed. The experiments: (i) examined the acute methaemoglobin (MetHb) profile over time; (ii) refined the LD50 estimate for PAVP in adult female rats; (iii) developed...

  5. Measuring heart rate variability in horses to investigate the autonomic nervous system activity - pros and cons of different methods

    Contributor(s):: Stucke, D., Ruse, M. G., Lebelt, D.

    Power spectrum analysis of heart rate variability (HRV) may provide insight into the mental state of the animal held in restricted specific experimental conditions. Determining inter-beat-interval (IBI) variations is one way to measure changes in autonomic nervous system (ANS) activity in horses....

  6. Heart rate variability during a working memory task: does touching a dog or person affect the response?

    Contributor(s):: Gee, N. R., Friedmann, E., Stendahl, M., Fisk, A., Coglitore, V.

    The presence of a dog has been associated with reduced responses to stressors in several, but not all, previous studies. The presence of a dog has also been related to improved performance on some cognitive tasks. The current study was designed to evaluate the effect of touching a dog on stress...

  7. Effect of dog-walking on autonomic nervous activity in senior citizens.

    Contributor(s):: Motooka M, Koike H, Yokoyama T, Kennedy NL

  8. Febrile illnesses acquired from animals

    Contributor(s):: Arguello, Sara L., Steele, Russell W.

  9. Do audible and ultrasonic sounds of intensities common in animal facilities affect the autonomic nervous system of rodents?

    Contributor(s):: Burwell, A. K., Baldwin, A. L.

    In animal facilities, noises, often poorly controlled, occur over a wide range of frequencies and intensities. Evidence demonstrates that audible noise and ultrasound have deleterious effects on rodent physiology, but it is not known how they affect the autonomic nervous system (ANS). This study...

  10. Equine stereotypic behaviors: causation, occurrence, and prevention

    Contributor(s):: Sarrafchi, A., Blokhuis, H. J.

    There are strong suggestions that equine stereotypies are connected to poor welfare and a suboptimal management and/or stabling environment. Different forms of equine stereotypic behaviors have been described. Crib biting, weaving, and box walking are considered the most prevalent. Several...

  11. Evaluating the effect of early neurological stimulation on the development and training of mine detection dogs

    Contributor(s):: Schoon, A., Berntsen, T. G.

    Early neurological stimulation (ENS) has been proposed to enhance the natural abilities of dogs. This kind of stimulation involves subjecting pups aged between 3 and 16 days to mild forms of stimulation leading to "stress," and is said to lead to faster maturation and better problem-solving...

  12. Periods of early development and the effects of stimulation and social experiences in the canine

    Contributor(s):: Battaglia, C. L.

    It is not capacity that explains the differences that exist between individuals, because most seem to have far more capacity than they will ever use. The differences that exist between individuals seem to be related to something else. Researchers have studied these phenomena and have looked for...

  13. [Useful of animals as integrated rehabilitation in patients with psychological and physical discomfort]

    Contributor(s):: Pugliese, A., Fenga, C., Pugliese, M.

  14. Heart rate variability in horses engaged in equine-assisted activities

    Contributor(s):: Gehrke, E. K., Baldwin, A., Schiltz, P. M.
