• An fMRI-study on single-sided deafness: Spectral-temporal properties and side of stimulation modulates hemispheric dominance 

    Heggdal, Peder Olaf Laugen; Aarstad, Hans Jørgen; Brännström, Jonas; Vassbotn, Flemming; Specht, Karsten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-06)
    <i>Objective</i>: Our main aim was to investigate the blood oxygenation level dependent (BOLD) response to monaural and binaural speech- and non-speech stimuli as measured with fMRI in subjects with single-sided deafness and in normal hearing controls. We hypothesised that the response to monaural stimulation in both normal hearing subjects and persons with single-sided deafness would vary with the ...
  • Exploring the teaching environment in a higher education geoscience programme 

    Malm, Rie Hjørnegaard; Martens, Iver (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Conference object; Konferansebidrag, 2019-03-19)
    This paper explores the teaching environment among the teaching staff in thegeoscience programme at UiT The Arctic University of Norway. The findings in this paper are based on a large baseline study conducted in 2018. This paper operationalises the teaching culture by analysing the teachers’ ideas, collaborations, and attitudes towards teaching. In-depth interviews ...
  • Dynamic up- and down-regulation of the default (DMN) and extrinsic (EMN) mode networks during alternating task-on and task-off periods 

    Hugdahl, Kenneth; Kazimierczak, Katarzyna Anna; Beresniewicz, Justyna; Kompus, Kristiina; Westerhausen, René; Ersland, Lars; Grüner, Renate; Specht, Karsten (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-19)
    Using fMRI, Hugdahl et al. (2015) reported the existence of a general-domain cortical network during active task-processing which was non-specific to the cognitive task being processed. They labelled this network the extrinsic mode network (EMN). The EMN would be predicted to be negatively, or anti-correlated with the classic default mode network (DMN), typically observed during periods of rest, ...
  • Microvariation in multilingual situations: The importance of property-by-property acquisition 

    Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-12)
    In this article, I argue that first language (L1), second language (L2) and third language (L3) acquisition are fundamentally the same process, based on learning by parsing. Both child and adult learners are sensitive to fine linguistic distinctions, and language development takes place in small steps. While the bulk of the article focuses on crosslinguistic influence in L2/Ln acquisition, I first ...
  • Effect of Antiviral Drugs against Cervid Herpesvirus 2 (CvHV2) in vitro 

    Magnuson, Emily Elizabeth (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-11-15)
    Cervid herpesvirus 2 (CvHV2) is an alphaherpesvirus found in Rangifer subspecies throughout most of the circumpolar Arctic and the causative agent of infectious keratoconjunctivitis (IKC) in semi-domesticated Eurasian tundra reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus). IKC occurs as regular outbreaks, affecting dozens of reindeer in a herd, and is most common and severe among calves and young animals. IKC ...
