  • The Influence of Verbal Instructions on Action Control 

    Damanskyy, Yevhen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2024-04-26)
    Prior research on action control has primarily focused on action-effect learning through behavioral experiments. However, another line of research has demonstrated that verbal information can serve as an alternative route for forming these associations, even without any active behavior. This thesis explores whether verbal instructions framed in an effect-response manner can provide an additional ...

    Nicholls, D.A.; Ahlsen, Birgitte; Bjorbækmo, Wenche; Dahl-Michelsen, Tone; Hoppner, Heidi; Rajala, Anna Ilona; Richter, Robert; Hansen, Louise Søgaard; Sudmann, Tobba Therkildsen; Sviland, Randi; Maric, Filip (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2023-09-09)
    Critical physiotherapy has been a rapidly expanding field over the last decade and could now justifiably be called a professional sub-discipline. In this paper we define three different but somewhat interconnected critical positions that have emerged over the last decade that share a critique of physiotherapy’s historical approach to health and illness, while also diverging in the possibilities for ...
  • 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. ...

  • Trends for cognitive function and dementia in a general population; Risk factors, trajectories, and incidence 

    Johnsen, Bente (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2024-04-25)
    Med økende levealder er kognitiv sunn aldring viktig for et godt liv i alderdommen. Kognisjon hos unge voksne har økt det siste århundret, men det er få studier over tid på personer over 60 år. Risikofaktorer for kognitiv svikt og demens er identifisert, og en av de mest lovende beskyttende faktorer er fysisk aktivitet. Demensprevalensen er høyere i Norge enn sammenlignbare land, og longitudinelle ...

  • Educational gradient in dental caries 

    Moltubakk, Silje Navjord (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2022-03-24)
    Background: Dental health is an important aspect and a key indicator of general health. However, detailed data on dental health in the adult population in Norway is lacking. Literature indicates that people with lower socioeconomic position (SEP) have significantly poorer dental health than people with higher SEP. For example, adults in Norway with higher education report better self-reported ...

  • Relationships between physical activity and chronic pain: The role of endogenous pain sensitivity - A population-based perspective: The Tromsø Study 

    Årnes, Anders Pedersen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2024-04-16)
    <p><i>Background and aims:</i> Chronic pain is a major global health concern, yet causal mechanisms are not well understood. Physical activity is popular as prevention and treatment, possibly acting through a positive effect on endogenous pain modulation. This has not been examined in the general population. <p><i>Materials and methods:</i> We used data from the sixth and seventh surveys of the ...
