AEC18/17 Assessing positive affective states in sheep using attention bias
This data collection contains behavioural and temperature data for 80 sheep during a modified attention bias test. Prior to testing sheep were treated with drugs to induce short-term anxiety-like, calm-like and euphoric-like states. The work aimed to determine whether the modified test could be used to measure the induced states.
