What Happened in Northern Norway? - A comparative and quantitative analysis of political and demographic development in Northern Norway from 1950 to 2015

  • Early maladaptive schemas as predictors of maternal bonding to the unborn child 

    Nordahl, Dag; Høifødt, Ragnhild Sørensen; Bohne, Agnes; Landsem, Inger Pauline; Wang, Catharina Elisabeth Arfwedson; Thimm, Jens (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-11)
    <p><i>Background - </i>The quality of an expectant mother’s bonding to the fetus has been shown to be associated with important developmental outcomes. Previous studies suggest that bonding quality is predicted by, for example, social support, psychological well-being, and depression. However, little is known regarding the role of maternal cognition in maternal-fetal bonding. Early maladaptive schemas ...
  • Clinical Course in Chronic Subdural Hematoma Patients Aged 18–49 Compared to Patients 50 Years and Above: A Multicenter Study and Meta-Analysis 

    Bartek, Jiri; Sjåvik, Kristin; Dhawan, Sanjay; Sagberg, Lisa Millgård; Kristiansson, Helena; Ståhl, Fredrik; Förander, Petter; Chen, Clark C.; Jakola, Asgeir Store (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-05)
    <p><i>Objective - </i>Chronic Subdural Hematoma (cSDH) is primarily a disease of elderly, and is rare in patients <50 years, and this may in part be related to the increased brain atrophy from 50 years of age. This fact may also influence clinical presentation and outcome. The aim of this study was to study the clinical course with emphasis on clinical presentation of cSDH patients in the young (<50 ...
  • The effect of white matter hyperintensities on regional brain volumes and white matter microstructure, a population-based study in HUNT 

    Vangberg, Torgil Riise; Eikenes, Live; Håberg, Asta K. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-04)
    Even though age-related white matter hyperintensities (WMH) begin to emerge in middle age, their effect on brain micro- and macrostructure in this age group is not fully elucidated. We have examined how presence of WMH and load of WMH affect regional brain volumes and microstructure in a validated, representative general population sample of 873 individuals between 50 and 66 years. Presence of WMH ...
  • Quantification of bell-shaped size selectivity in shrimp trawl fisheries using square mesh panels and a sorting cone after a Nordmøre grid 

    Sistiaga, Manu Berrondo; Herrmann, Bent; Larsen, Roger B.; Brinkhof, Jesse (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-12)
    Shrimp trawlers in the Barents Sea use a Nordmøre sorting grid ahead of a small-mesh codend to avoid bycatch while catching shrimps efficiently. However, small fish can still pass through the grid to enter the codend, which increases their risk of being retained. In this study, we quantified the selectivity of a standard Nordmøre grid used together with one of two different codend designs, namely a ...
  • Rifaximin alters gut microbiota profile, but does not affect systemic inflammation - a randomized controlled trial in common variable immunodeficiency 

    Jørgensen, Silje Fjellgård; Macpherson, Magnhild Eide; Bjørnetrø, Tonje; Holm, Kristian; Kummen, Martin; Rashidi, Azita; Michelsen, Annika; Lekva, Tove; Halvorsen, Bente; Trøseid, Marius; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Berge, Rolf Kristian; Yndestad, Arne; Ueland, Thor; Karlsen, Tom Hemming; Aukrust, Pål; Hov, Johannes Espolin Roksund; Fevang, Børre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-17)
    Common variable immunodeficiency (CVID) patients have reduced gut microbial diversity compared to healthy controls. The reduced diversity is associated with gut leakage, increased systemic inflammation and ten “key” bacteria that capture the gut dysbiosis (dysbiosis index) in CVID. Rifaximin is a broad-spectrum non-absorbable antibiotic known to reduce gut leakage (lipopolysaccharides, LPS) in liver ...
