    • Blame it on the weather? The association between pain in fibromyalgia, relative humidity, temperature and barometric pressure 

      Fagerlund, Asbjørn Johansen; Iversen, Maria; Ekeland, Andrea; Moen, Connie Malén; Aslaksen, Per M (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-10)
      Self-reported pain levels in patients with fibromyalgia may change according to weather conditions. Previous studies suggest that low barometric pressure (BMP) is significantly related to increased pain, but that the contribution of changes in BMP has limited clinical relevance. The present study examined whether BMP influenced variability in perceived stress, and if stress levels moderated or ...
    • General practitioners’ perceptions towards the use of digital health services for citizens in primary care: a qualitative interview study 

      Fagerlund, Asbjørn Johansen; Holm, Inger Marie; Zanaboni, Paolo (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-28)
      <b>Objectives</b> <br>To explore general practitioners’ (GPs) perceptions towards use of four digital health services for citizens: an electronic booking service to make reservations with the GP; an electronic prescription service to request renewal of maintenance drugs; a service for text-based non-clinical enquiries to the GP office and a service for text-based electronic consultation (e-consultation) ...
    • No effect of 2mA anodal tDCS over the M1 on performance and practice effect on Grooved Pegboard Test and Trail Making Test B 

      Fagerlund, Asbjørn Johansen; Freili, Janita; Danielsen, Therese; Aslaksen, Per M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-19)
      Previous studies suggest that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can facilitate motor performance and learning. In this double-blind experiment, 60 healthy human subjects (29 females) were randomized into three groups (active tDCS, sham tDCS, and no-treatment control group) in order to investigate the effect of a 20 min session of 2 mA tDCS over the motor cortex contralateral to the ...
    • Transcranial direct current stimulation: the effect on functional outcomes in the pain and motor domains 

      Fagerlund, Asbjørn Johansen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2015-06-08)
      The physiological effects of transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) in the living human brain were verified experimentally in the early 2000's. A series of studies from Göttingen, Germany, shows that consistently, anodal stimulation lead to increased cortical excitability, while cathodal stimulation leads to increased cortical inhibition. Since then, the effect of tDCS has been further ...
