• Ageing in Place and Autonomy: Is the ‘Age-Friendly’ City Initiative Too Elderly-Friendly? 

    Angell, Kim (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-05)
    This chapter discusses the ‘age-friendly cities’ initiative aimed at enhancing people’s opportunity to age in place. It presents an autonomy-based defence of the idea and examines the moral claim that the elderly can make in support of their ability to age in place. The chapter emphasizes, among other considerations, that ageing in place can have cognitive benefits through the routines and habits ...
  • Hvordan skal Nord-Norge forsvares? En analyse av landmakten på NATOs nordflanke. 

    Solvang, Øystein; Wegge, Njord (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-03-22)
    There is an ongoing debate about the future of Norwegian land power and the defence of the northern parts of the country, a crucial part of NATO’s Northern Flank. The debate emerged following the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2014, and the 2022 invasion changed key premises, not least by leading to Finland and Sweden applying for NATO membership. This chapter discusses key political, military ...
  • Role of bilingualism in neurodegenerative disease II. Beyond Alzheimer's. 

    Voits, Toms (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Over the past decades, bilingualism has emerged as a potential factor having a significant impact on cognition and brain structure. Such research typically examines the effects of bilingualism in healthy children and adults. Conversely, the body of literature examining bilingualism effects in ageing populations remains comparatively small. This holds especially true with regards to effects of ...
  • Defining bilingualism as a continuum: Some tools and consequences for the study of bilingual mind and brain effects 

    Rothman, Jason; Bayram, Fatih; DeLuca, Vincent; Gonzalez Alonso, Jorge; Kubota, Maki; Puig-Mayenco, Eloi (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023)
    Prior to the early 1960s, the idea that children in bilingual contexts were somehow disadvantaged for linguistic and cognitive development was popularly held. Without consideration of socio-economic inequalities across groups, often co-occurring with ethnic/racial minority status, it was argued that simultaneous language exposure resulted in confusion, delaying the process of language acquisition ...
  • Synthetic wavelength scanning interferometry for 3D surface profilometry with extended range of height measurement using multi-colour LED light sources 

    Mann, Priyanka; Dubey, Vishesh Kumar; Ahmad, Azeem; Butola, Ankit; Mehta, Dalip Singh (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-04-05)
    We report three-dimensional surface profilometry with extended range of height measurements using synthetic wavelength scanning interferometry without tunable filters, wavelength-tuning lasers, grating elements. We have used inexpensive multiple colour light emitting diodes (LEDs) and operate them sequentially one by one or combination of two or more colours simultaneously to visualize synthetic ...
