AbstractFull Text

Post-exposing the rats to enriched environment has shown to attenuate the psycho-neurological and behavioral deficits produced as a result of chronic stress in rats. But here we studied the possibility whether the pre-exposure of enriched environment might affect the behavioral deficits produced as ...

Abstract

The majority of laboratory animals is a prey in the nature, therefore they can be used in the fields of many psychological research, such as modelling different human anxiety syndromes. Previously the rat used to be the primary model, but parallel to the development of molecular biology, sensitive...

Abstract

Socialisation is a unique learning process that enables young animals to better adapt to their future adult social habitat. Behind this apparent behavioural process is a neurologic structuration of the brain and enhancement of the mind.

Abstract

Left-right asymmetries in behavior associated with asymmetries in the brain are widespread in the animal kingdom [1], and the hypothesis has been put forward that they may be linked to animals social behavior [2,3]. Dogs show asymmetric tail-wagging responses to different emotive stimuli [4] - the...

Abstract

Few studies have evaluated the long-term effects of providing environmental resources to mice. This consideration is important given that mice are often maintained in vivaria for months. We evaluated the effects of providing simple cage resources (wood wool, cotton nesting material, a plastic...

Abstract

The Japanese macaque (Macaca fuscata), along with rhesus and long-tailed macaques, is one of the macaca species. In Japan, it has been preferred for use as a laboratory animal, particularly in the field of neuroscience, because of its high level of intelligence and its gentle nature. In addition,...

Abstract

To gain further insight in risk factors related to feather pecking, this thesis investigated the effects of genetic background and social environment on feather pecking and related behavioural characteristics in laying hens. In several experiments, behaviour, performance and physiology of...

Abstract

Animal group sizes may exert important effects on various cognitive mechanisms. Group size is believed to exert pressures on fundamental brain structures that correlate with the increased social demands placed on animals living in relatively large, complex and dynamic social organizations. There is ...

Abstract

Whilst studies on cetaceans have focused on a few populations of just a few species, various complex behaviours and social structures that support the notion that cetaceans should be regarded as intelligent animals have been revealed. The evidence to support this is reviewed here and is best...
