Abstract

Nose contact is a frequent form of social behaviour in pigs, but the motivational reasons underlying this behaviour remain unclear. We investigated the frequency, direction and type of sow-piglet nosing behaviour and its association with sow and piglet traits. Social nosing behaviour was recorded...

Abstract

A goal-directed action is composed of two main elements on which the observer may focus its attention: the movement performed (i.e., the action) and the outcome (i.e., the goal).

Abstract

Animal hosts and the microbiota that symbiotically inhabit them benefit each other reciprocally. The microbiota potentially benefit from their animal hosts by increasing the microbial communities through communication signals. Recent investigations reveal novel and important connections between...
