Abstract and Keywords

This article focuses on the modeling of neuropsychiatric disorders in the case of animal emotions. It examines critically the evidence that philosophers have used to justify the claim that some nonhuman animals experience emotions similar to those of humans, such as pain and suffering. It provides an alternative strategy to making similar claims in a manner that avoids the possible confusion present in the existing pain literature. It also discusses evidence of animal emotions from human pain and suffering and describes the chick anxiety-depression continuum model.

Keywords: neuropsychiatric disorders, animal emotions, animal experience, pain, suffering, anxiety-depression model
