The Judgement Bias Apparatus is one of the two apparatus used by Roelofs S. et al. (2017), to assess female and male pigs’ performance in a spatial holeboard and judgment bias task.
The apparatus consists of a rectangular arena connected to a start box via an antechamber. Entrance of pigs from the start box to the arena is controlled by a guillotine door, operated by a rope and pulley system.
Goal-boxes where the pigs could obtain rewards are situated at the back wall of the arena, near the corners. Each goal-box can contain a food bowl. Goal-boxes could be opened and closed using guillotine doors which could be operated from outside the apparatus by rope and pulley systems.
Mazeengineers offer the Judgement Bias Apparatus.
