Behavioural Differences in Dogs with Atopic Dermatitis Suggest Stress Could Be a Significant Problem Associated with Chronic Pruritus (2019)
Journal Article
Harvey, N. D., Craigon, P. J., Shaw, S. C., Blott, S. C., & England, G. C. (2019). Behavioural Differences in Dogs with Atopic Dermatitis Suggest Stress Could Be a Significant Problem Associated with Chronic Pruritus. Animals, 9(10), https://doi.org/10.3390/ani9100813

Canine atopic dermatitis (cAD) is a common allergic skin condition in dogs that causes chronic pruritus. The overall quality of life in dogs with cAD is known to be reduced, and human patients with pruritic conditions report significant psychological...

Environmental risk factors for canine atopic dermatitis: a retrospective large‐scale study in Labrador and golden retrievers (2019)
Journal Article
Harvey, N. D., Shaw, S. C., Craigon, P. J., Blott, S. C., & England, G. C. (2019). Environmental risk factors for canine atopic dermatitis: a retrospective large‐scale study in Labrador and golden retrievers. Veterinary Dermatology, 30(5), 396-e119. https://doi.org/10.1111/vde.12782

Background - canine atopic dermatitis (cAD) is one the most common and distressing skin disorders seen in dogs. It is characterised by dysfunction in the skin barrier, with a complex pathogenesis combining both genetic and environmental factors. O...

Could Greater Time Spent Displaying Waking Inactivity in the Home Environment Be a Marker for a Depression-Like State in the Domestic Dog? (2019)
Journal Article
Harvey, N. D., Moesta, A., Kappel, S., Wongsaengchan, C., Harris, H., Craigon, P. J., & Fureix, C. (2019). Could Greater Time Spent Displaying Waking Inactivity in the Home Environment Be a Marker for a Depression-Like State in the Domestic Dog?. Animals, 9(7), doi:10.3390/ani9070420

Dogs exposed to aversive events can become inactive and unresponsive and are commonly referred to as being "depressed", but this association remains to be tested. We investigated whether shelter dogs spending greater time inactive "awake but motionle...

Card Mapper: Enabling Data-Driven Reflections on Ideation Cards (2019)
Conference Proceeding
Darzentas, D., Velt, R., Wetzel, R., Craigon, P. J., Wagner, H. G., Urquhart, L. D., & Benford, S. (2019). Card Mapper: Enabling Data-Driven Reflections on Ideation Cards. In CHI '19: Proceedings of the 2019 CHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems Paperdoi:10.1145/3290605.3300801

We explore how usage data captured from ideation cards can enable reflection on design. We deployed a deck of ideation cards on a Masters level module over two years, developing the means to capture the students’ designs into a digital repository. We...
