    Petrenya, Natalia; Lamberg-Allardt, Christel; Melhus, Marita; Broderstad, Ann Ragnhild; Brustad, Magritt (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-15)
    <i>Objective</i> - To investigate serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (S-25(OH)D) concentration in a multi-ethnic population of northern Norway and determine predictors of S-25(OH)D, including Sami ethnicity.<p> <p><i>Design</i> - Cross-sectional data from the second survey of the Population-based Study on Health and Living Conditions in Regions with Sami and Norwegian Populations (the SAMINOR 2 Clinical ...
  • No ethnic disparities in nutritional adequacy between the Indigenous Sami and the non-Sami population living in rural Northern Norway—the SAMINOR 2 Clinical Survey 

    Petrenya, Natalia; Skeie, Guri; Melhus, Marita; Brustad, Magritt (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-28)
    The diet of the Indigenous Sami people has become more Westernized. The lack of population-based data on nutrient intake and nutritional adequacy, in combination with a high prevalence of obesity/metabolic syndrome among Sami, was the rationale behind the present study. We hypothesized that differences in nutrient intake between Sami and non-Sami populations may still exist but that these differences ...
  • Urban–Rural Differences in Hip Fracture Mortality: A Nationwide NOREPOS Study 

    Solbakken, Siri Marie; Magnus, Jeanette H.; Meyer, Haakon E; Dahl, Cecilie; Stigum, Hein; Søgaard, Anne-Johanne; Holvik, Kristin; Tell, Grethe S.; Emaus, Nina; Forsmo, Siri; Gjesdal, Clara Gram; Schei, Berit; Vestergaard, Peter; Omsland, Tone Kristin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-09)
    Higher hip fracture incidence in urban than in rural areas has been demonstrated, but urban–rural differences in posthip fracture mortality have been less investigated, and the results are disparate. Hence, the aims of the present register‐based cohort study were to examine possible urban–rural differences in short‐ and long‐term mortality in Norwegian hip fracture patients and their potential ...
  • Being a participant matters: Event related potentials show that markedness modulates person agreement in Spanish 

    Alemán Bañón, Jose; Rothman, Jason (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-24)
    The present study uses event-related potentials to examine subject–verb person agreement in Spanish, with a focus on how markedness with respect to the speech participant status of the subject modulates processing. Morphological theory proposes a markedness distinction between first and second person, on the one hand, and third person on the other. The claim is that both the first and second persons ...
  • Strategy for Detection and High-Resolution Characterization of Authigenic Carbonate Cold Seep Habitats Using Ships and Autonomous Underwater Vehicles on Glacially Influenced Terrain 

    Thorsnes, Terje; Chand, Shyam; Brunstad, Harald; Lepland, Aivo; Lågstad, Petter Arthur (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-26)
    Cold seep habitats with authigenic carbonates and associated chemosynthetic communities in glacially influenced terrains constitute an important part of the benthic ecosystems, but they are difficult to detect in large-scale seabed surveys. The areas they occupy are normally small, and survey platforms and sensors allowing high-resolution spatial characterization are necessary. We have developed a ...
