≪Organizer Abstract≫
When we consider and handle animal welfare, we require an objective indicator of it and then we try to assess their emotional and subjective state. However it is not simple for us to evaluate their emotional and subjective state. In this thematic session, we will introduce Applied Ethology, which has been working on the task, and the International Society for Applied Ethology (the 50th Anniversary since the founding of the organization in 1966). The speakers will give lectures about how to assess animal welfare, stress and comfort; measuring animal's motivation using operant conditioning, the test of animal's preference for their environment and housing, animal behavioural needs and a physiological assessment of animal stress. We will appreciate it if we can also discuss the task from the point of view of psychology in our session.
