The Social Neuroscience of Human-Animal Interaction

Edited by: Lisa S. Freund, Sandra McCune, Layla Esposito, Nancy R. Gee, Peggy McCardle
ISBN: 978-1-4338-2176-9
Published By: American Psychological Association Books
Publication Date: 15/02/16

Back cover Synopsis: An international and cross-disciplinary group of authors seek to understand human-animal interaction (HAI) by applying research in the neurobiology and genetics that underlie human social functioning. Chapters examine HAI from evolutionary and developmental perspectives, and weigh the implications of HAI research for animal welfare. Clinical applications include animal-assisted therapies for people with disabilities, acute or chronic health conditions, and social or emotional difficulty.

Intended for researchers in social neuroscience and HAI as well as clinicians, teachers and animal-rights activists, and anyone interested in how and why animals affect us the way they do.

The Health Benefits of Dog Walking for Pets & People: Evidence & Case Studies

Edited by: Rebecca A Johnson, Alan M. Beck, Sandra McCune
ISBN: 978-1-55753-582-5
Published By: Purdue University Press
Publication Date: 25/10/2011

Back cover Synopsis: Originating from a special 2009 symposium funded by the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) and Mars-Waltham©, the book assesses how human-animal interaction might help address the obesity epidemic. The volume will be especially valuable as a sourcebook of evidence-based studies for public health professionals treating overweight humans and veterinarians treating obese dogs.
