  • Default, time-pressured and incentivized deliberate reasoning 

    Abukar, Fozia Aweys (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2021-05-14)
    The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect time-pressure and incentives have on deliberate reasoning. A person’s tendency to engage in and enjoy processes that require reasoning, i.e., their need for cognition, and their algorithmic ability are factors that may moderate performance in reasoning tasks when they are under time-pressure or given monetary reward. Identifying how to increase ...

    Kvale, Gerd; Søfteland, Eirik; Jürgensen, Marte; Wilhelmsen-Langeland, Ane; Haugstvedt, Anne; Hystad, Sigurd William; Ødegaard-Olsen, Øystein Theodor; Aarli, Bernt Bøgvald; Rykken, Sidsel; Frisk, Bente (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-01-11)
    Background - The health care is likely to break down unless we are able to increase the level of functioning for the growing number of patients with complex, chronic illnesses. Hence, novel high-capacity and cost-effective treatments with trans-diagnostic effects are warranted. In accordance with the protocol paper, we aimed to examine the acceptability, satisfaction, and effectiveness of an ...
  • Relational rehabilitation: Reducing harmful effects of bullying 

    Finne, Johannes Nilsson; Roland, Erling Georg; Svartdal, Frode (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018-12-10)
    Bullying causes pain and harm to the victims and creates wounds that often remain even if the bullying stops. Additionally, the social dynamics of the classroom community, where most bullying takes place, may remain after the termination of the active bullying of a pupil. This combination of personal trauma and contextual conditions in the classroom community creates a high risk of negative development. ...

  • Because sex matters: The case of female sexual response 

    Ventura-Aquino, Elisa; Ågmo, Anders j (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-05-17)
    In recent years, the Food and Drug Administration approved two drugs for the treatment of hypoactive sexual desire disorder in premenopausal women which have been tested in preclinical tests with positive effects on some appetitive sexual behavior in female rats. Some years after their commercial release, the effectiveness of both drugs in women is not clear. In the present chapter, we present some ...
  • Disrupting the Social and Time Vacuum: A Systemic and Lifespan Perspective on Job Insecurity 

    Debus, Maike E.; Unger, Dana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2023)
    In their lead article, Klug et al. conceptualize job insecurity as a multilevel construct whereby individuals are situated in meso- and macro-level contexts. Their resulting model highlights that the experience of job insecurity, as well as reactions to job insecurity, are not only affected by factors emanating from individuals' direct environment (i.e., at the individual level) but also from different ...
  • Seksuelle overgrep begått av voksne eller jevnaldrende: risikofaktorer, psykisk helse og livskvalitet i et representativt ungdomsutvalg 

    Schaathun, Iris Linnea; Nenseth, Ian Revhaug (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-02-15)
    Bakgrunn: Rundt halvparten av seksuelle overgrep mot barn og unge begås av jevnaldrende, likevel vet vi lite om forskjeller i risikofaktorer og helsekonsekvenser relatert til om overgriperen har vært voksen eller jevnaldrende. Formål: Studien undersøker risikofaktorer, psykisk helse og livskvalitet relatert til seksuelle overgrep, og forskjeller relatert til om overgrepet ble begått av voksne eller ...
  • Evaluation of Sexual Behavior in Laboratory vs Seminatural Conditions 

    Chu, Xi; Ågmo, Anders j (Chapter; Bokkapittel, 2023-05-17)
    Sexual behavior is, by necessity, sexually dimorphic. Males transfer sperm to females, whereas females receive sperm from males. Discussions of sex differences in copulatory behavior are consequently trivial. However, the behaviors associated with copulation, for example mate choice or postcopulatory reactions, may well be similar in males and females. Such differences, even subtle, are far easier ...
  • Changes in reward-induced neural activity upon Cafeteria Diet consumption 

    Heijkoop, Roy; Ferrer Lalanza, Jaume; Solanas, Montserrat; Álvarez-Monell, Adam; Subias-Gusils, Alex; Escorihuela, Rosa; Snoeren, Eelke Mirthe Simone (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2024-02-01)
    Excessive consumption of highly palatable foods rich in sugar and fat, often referred to as “junk” or “fast” foods, plays a central role in the development of obesity. The highly palatable characteristics of these foods activate hedonic and motivational mechanisms to promote food-seeking behavior and overeating, which is largely regulated by the brain reward system. Excessive junk food consumption ...
  • From serial reproduction to serial communication: transmission of the focus of comparison in lay communication about gender inequality 

    Braun, Maike; Martiny, Sarah E.; Bruckmüller, Susanne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-10-21)
    We introduce and explore the potential of the serial communication method, a modification of the serial reproduction paradigm in which participants communicate their own thoughts. It affords participants more agency, more closely simulating real communication. We specifically examined the transmission of the focus of comparison in explanations of gender inequality, a consequential form of equivalency ...

  • Echoes from Intrinsic Connectivity Networks in the Subcortex 

    Groot, Josephine Maria; Miletic, Steven; Isherwood, Scott J.S.; Tse, Desmond H.Y.; Habli, Sarah; Håberg, Asta; Forstmann, Birte U.; Bazin, Pierre-Louis; Mittner, Matthias Bodo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2023-12-27)
    Decades of research have greatly improved our understanding of intrinsic human brain organization in terms of functional networks and the transmodal hubs within the cortex at which they converge. However, substrates of multinetwork integration in the human subcortex are relatively uncharted. Here, we leveraged recent advances in subcortical atlasing and ultra-high field (7 T) imaging optimized for ...
