    Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disorder, characterized by cortical dementia and irreversibly progressive developments leading to a vegetative state and, finally, to death. Although many aspects of its etiology, diagnosis and treatment still remain obscure and the current...

  2. Effect of cooperative care training on physiological parameters and compliance in dogs undergoing a veterinary examination – A pilot study

    | Contributor(s):: Wess, Lukas, Böhm, Astrid, Schützinger, Miriam, Riemer, Stefanie, Yee, Jason R., Affenzeller, Nadja, Arhant, Christine

    One way to reduce fear and lack of compliance during veterinary procedures is ‘cooperative care training’, training animals to voluntarily participate in husbandry and medical care. Here we assessed the effects of cooperative care training on heart rate (HR), heart rate variability (HRV),...

  3. Heart rate and heart rate variability in school dogs

    | Contributor(s):: Bidoli, Emilie M. Y., Erhard, Michael H., Döring, Dorothea

    The aim of this study was to examine whether the canine stress level was elevated during animal-assisted education by means of the Polar monitor V800 (Polar Electro Oy, Kempele, Finland), which recorded heart rate (HR) and heart rate variability (HRV). At 54 Bavarian schools with one working dog...

  4. The effects of Animal Assisted Therapy on autonomic and endocrine activity in adults with autism spectrum disorder: A randomized controlled trial

  5. Pilot study of the influence of equine assisted therapy on physiological and behavioral parameters related to welfare of horses and patients

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Dolores Ayala, M., Carrillo, A., Iniesta, P., Ferrer, P.

    Different welfare indicators were studied in three patients with psychomotor alterations and in two horses throughout 9-10 equine assisted therapy sessions in each patient. In horses, heart and respiratory rates, blood pressure, temperature and behavioral signs were studied. In patients, heart...

  8. Can Dog-Assisted Intervention Decrease Anxiety Level and Autonomic Agitation in Patients with Anxiety Disorders?

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Wołyńczyk-Gmaj, D., Ziółkowska, A., Rogala, P., Ścigała, D., Bryła, L., Gmaj, B., Wojnar, M.

    Few studies have explored the influence of an Animal-Assisted Intervention on patients with mental disorders. We investigated it's impact on anxiety symptoms. We divided 51 patients with anxiety symptoms into two groups-treatment group, that went for a short 15-20 min' walk with a dog,...

  9. The Impact of an Animal-Assisted Intervention Using Certified Therapy Dogs on Psychological and Physiological Measures of Pre-Licensure Baccalaureate Nursing Student Test Anxiety

  10. Effects of pre-conditioning on behavior and physiology of horses during a standardised learning task

    Full-text: Available

    | Contributor(s):: Kate Fenner, Holly Webb, Melissa J. Starling, Rafael Freire, Petra Buckley, Paul D. McGreevy

    Rein tension is used to apply pressure to control both ridden and unridden horses. The pressure is delivered by equipment such as the bit, which may restrict voluntary movement and cause changes in behavior and physiology. Managing the effects of such pressure on arousal level and behavioral...
