  • Past Negative Consequences of Unnecessary Delay as a Marker of Procrastination 

    Svartdal, Frode; Nemtcan, Efim (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-21)
    Standard definitions of procrastination underscore the irrational nature of this habit, a critical criterion being that the procrastinating individual delays despite expecting to be worse off for the delay. However, an examination of more than 175 items in 18 procrastination scales reveals that they do not address such a forward-looking criterion. Consequently, scales run the risk of not separating ...
  • Effects of self-instructed stimulus-affect plans on indirectly measured and self-reported evaluative responses 

    Martiny-Huenger, Torsten; Roth, Jenny (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-06)
    Repeatedly experiencing a specific stimulus-affect contingency influences subsequent evaluative responses towards the respective stimulus (e.g., evaluative conditioning). In the present research, we provide further evidence that verbally processed stimulus-affect contingencies in the form of if-then plans have comparable evaluative consequences. We present three studies (N = 323) in which participants ...
  • The effects of experiencing stereotype threat and internal attribution of failure among women’s intentions to drop out from university 

    Kofoed Eriksen, Tina (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-10)
    The aim of the present study was to investigate why women drop out from university, with specific focus on female students from science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). We developed three hypotheses based on stereotype threat theory (Steele & Aronson, 1995) and attribution theory (Heider, 1958). The hypotheses were as following: H1) The experience of stereotype threat is related to ...
  • Intelligens og rasjonalitet: effekten av flytende intelligens på kognitiv refleksjon 

    Andersen, Vetle (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-05-03)
    De siste tiårene har det vært gjort et forsøk på å tydeliggjøre skillet mellom intelligens og rasjonalitet, og det kommer stadig ny forskning som viser hvordan tilsynelatende høyt intelligente personer tar ufornuftige og irrasjonelle valg. For å se på mulige forklaringer på dette er det i denne hovedoppgaven gjort studier på utvalg fra to forskjellige populasjoner. I begge studiene ble flytende ...
  • Effects of Cognitive-behavioral and Psychodynamic-interpersonal Treatments for Eating Disorders: A Meta-analytic Inquiry Into the Role of Patient Characteristics, and Change in Eating Disorder-specific and General Psychopathology in Remission. 

    Solvang, Birgitte; Moberg, Leif Tore Ledaal (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-05-03)
    Background: Knowledge about the outcomes of different psychotherapeutic approaches for eating disorders in terms of remission is limited. Also, knowledge is limited about how therapies and patient characteristics interact to affect outcomes, and by which therapeutic processes. Method: Reports on the psychotherapeutic treatment of eating disorders by CBT and PIT were searched. Rates of remission and ...
  • Økt subjektiv kostnad men ikke svekket anstrengelse hos en gruppe med psykoselidelser 

    Livsdatter, Lina (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2017-05-02)
    Sammendrag Et hovedtrekk ved schizofreni ser ut for å være at mennesker med lidelsen ikke engasjerer seg i målrettet atferd i lik grad som friske. Det er pekt på et paradoks om manglende målrettet, samtidig som pasientene godt kan sette pris på hendelser her og nå. Senere år har det kommet til nye metoder, som gir sprikende men likevel lovende funn i retning av at mennesker med schizofreni kan ...
  • Gender differences in the relationship of lung function and response times during verbal performance in healthy adolescents 

    Flatebø, Solveig (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2017-05-02)
    Abstract The association between lung function and cognition has been examined in adulthood and in old age, but few studies have investigated the relationship in early life periods such as in adolescence. Because development in adolescence involves remarkable physiological and psychological changes, it is important to explore closely the relationship between bodily functions and cognition. This ...
  • Effekt av traumefokusert behandling av psykose 

    Fjellbekkmo, Elisabeth Johansen; Vikøren, Sofie Nilssen (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-05-01)
    Forskningslitteraturen viser til en dokumentert relasjon mellom traumer og psykose, der forekomsten av traumer er funnet signifikant høyere hos personer med psykose. Til tross for evidensbasert traumebehandling, så er det fortsatt en tendens til at pasientgruppen likevel ikke får denne behandlingsformen. Formålet med litteraturgjennomgangen var å undersøke effekt av evidensbasert traumebehandling ...
  • EXPRESS: The retention of proprioceptive information is suppressed by competing verbal and spatial task 

    Rago, Anett; Horvath, Aron (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-04-11)
    Proprioceptive information makes us able to perceive the position of our joints from an internal point of view. In certain cases, proprioceptive information has to be stored in short-term memory, for example, during the learning of new motor skills or the assessment of proprioceptive accuracy. However, there are contradictory findings about the modality-specific storage of proprioceptive information ...
  • Dexterity and Cognition in Mild Cognitive Impairment: A Pilot Study 

    Almhaug, Heidi; Johansen, Ingvild (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2017-04-29)
    Previous research has demonstrated that age-related decline in cognitive and sensorimotor functions are related to dexterity and instrumental activities of daily living (IADL). Few studies have closely investigated the association between dexterity and cognitive functions. The purpose of this study was to explore possible differences in dexterity, cognition and IADL function across a group of mild ...
  • Psychometric evaluation of the Coronary Revascularisation Outcome Questionnaire (CROQ) in Norwegian patients admitted to elective coronary angiography and possible percutaneous coronary intervention 

    Myrbakk, Ingvild Nordnes; Friborg, Oddgeir; Høye, Anne; Steigen, Terje; Bergvik, Svein (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-02-05)
    Background: The Coronary Revascularisation Outcome Questionnaire (CROQ) measures health-related quality of life and outcome of invasive revascularization procedures such as percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). The CROQ has not been properly validated in Norwegian patient populations. The aim of this study was to examine the psychometric properties ...
  • Study protocol: Prevalence of low energy availability and its relation to health and performance among female football players. 

    Rosenvinge, Jan H; Dasa, Marcus Småvik; Kristoffersen, Morten; Pettersen, Gunn; Sundgot-Borgen, Jorunn; Sagen, Jørn Vegard; Friborg, Oddgeir (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-10)
    Enduring low energy availability (LEA) is associated with several potentially serious physiological and mental conditions. LEA has been found highly prevalent among female elite athletes within endurance sports, thus hampering athletes’ health and performance. The prevalence and the underpinning risk factors of LEA among female elite football players are less studied. One reason is that the existing ...
  • High-Definition Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Improves Delayed Memory in Alzheimer’s Disease Patients: A Pilot Study Using Computational Modeling to Optimize Electrode Position 

    Rasmussen, Ingrid Daae; Boayue, Nya Mehnwolo; Mittner, Matthias; Bystad, Martin Kragnes; Grønli, Ole Kristian; Vangberg, Torgil Riise; Csifcsak, Gabor; Aslaksen, Per M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-09-14)
    Background: The optimal stimulation parameters when using transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) to improve memory performance in patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) are lacking. In healthy individuals, inter-individual differences in brain anatomy significantly influence current distribution during tDCS, an effect that might be aggravated by variations in cortical atrophy in AD ...
  • Effect of A Healthy Body Image intervention on risk- and protective factors for eating disorders: A cluster randomized controlled trial 

    Svantorp-Tveiten, Kethe Marie Engen; Torstveit, Monica Klungland; Rosenvinge, Jan H; Sundgot-Borgen, Christine; Friborg, Oddgeir; Bratland-Sanda, Solfrid; Pettersen, Gunn; Sundgot-Borgen, Jorunn (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-10-28)
    Objective - To investigate the immediate and 12-months effects of a school-based intervention aiming to reduce risk and enhance protective factors for eating disorder development in high school boys and girls.<p> <p>Method - In total, 4,149 adolescents from 30 high schools were eligible for inclusion and 2,446 consented to participate and were randomly allocated to the Healthy Body Image (HBI) ...

    The COVID-19 pandemic has increased negative emotions and decreased positive emotions globally. Left unchecked, these emotional changes might have a wide array of adverse impacts. To reduce negative emotions and increase positive emotions, we tested the effectiveness of reappraisal, an emotion-regulation strategy that modifies how one thinks about a situation. Participants from 87 countries and ...
  • Religion and Health In Arctic Norway—The association of religious and spiritual factors with non-suicidal self-injury in the Sami and non-Sami adult population—The SAMINOR 2 Questionnaire Survey 

    Kiærbech, Henrik Magnus; Silviken, Anne; Lorem, Geir F; Kristiansen, Roald E; Spein, Anna Rita (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-07-05)
    Research has found psychological dimensions of religiosity/spirituality (R/S) beneficial against non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI), whereas the effect of R/S social aspects is less studied. Using data from the SAMINOR 2 Questionnaire Survey (2012, n = 10,717 ages 18–69; response rate: 27%; non-Sami: 66%; females: 55%), we examined the association of R/S—religious attendance, congregational affiliation, ...

    Precarious manhood beliefs portray manhood, relative to womanhood, as a social status that is hard to earn, easy to lose, and proven via public action. Here, we present cross-cultural data on a brief measure of precarious manhood beliefs (the Precarious Manhood Beliefs scale [PMB]) that covaries meaningfully with other cross-culturally validated gender ideologies and with country-level indices of ...
  • A Multilab Study of Bilingual Infants: Exploring the Preference for Infant-Directed Speech 

    Byers-Heinlein, Krista; Tsui, Angeline Sin Mei; Bergmann, Christina; Black, Alexis K.; Brown, Anna; Carbajal, Maria Julia; Durrant, Samantha; Fennell, Christopher T.; Fiévet, Anne-Caroline; Frank, Michael C.; Gampe, Anja; Gervain, Judit; Gonzalez-Gomez, Nayeli; Hamlin, Kiley; Havron, Naomi; Hernik, Mikołaj; Kerr, Shila; Killam, Hilary; Klassen, Kelsey; Kosie, Jessica E.; Kovács, Ágnes Melinda; Lew-Willams, Casey; Liu, Liquan; Mani, Nivedita; Marino, Caterina; Mastroberardino, Meghan; Mateu, Victoria; Noble, Claire; Orena, Adriel John; Polka, Linda; Potter, Christine E.; Schreiner, Melanie S.; Singh, Leher; Soderstrom, Melanie; Sundara, Megha; Waddell, Connor; Werker, Janet F.; Wermelinger, Stephanie (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-12)
    From the earliest months of life, infants prefer listening to and learn better from infant-directed speech (IDS) compared with adult-directed speech (ADS). Yet IDS differs within communities, across languages, and across cultures, both in form and in prevalence. This large-scale, multisite study used the diversity of bilingual infant experiences to explore the impact of different types of linguistic ...
  • Does the Stereotypicality of Mothers’ Occupation Influence Children’s Communal Occupational Aspirations and Communal Orientation? 

    Kvalø, Marie; Olsen, Marte; Thorsteinsen, Kjærsti; Olsson, Maria; Martiny, Sarah (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-12-16)
    Career development is a lifelong process that starts in infancy and is shaped by a number of different factors during childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Even though career development is shaped through life, relatively little is known about the predictors of occupational aspirations in childhood. Therefore, in the present work we investigate how the stereotypicality of a mother’s occupation ...
