    Holmlund, Terje Bektesevic; Chandler, Chelsea; Foltz, Peter W.; Diaz-Asper, Catherine; Cohen, Alex S.; Elvevåg, Brita; Rodriguez, Zachary (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2022-11-10)
    Incoherent speech in schizophrenia has long been described as the mind making “leaps” of large distances between thoughts and ideas. Such a view seems intuitive, and for almost two decades, attempts to operationalize these conceptual “leaps” in spoken word meanings have used language-based embedding spaces. An embedding space represents meaning of words as numerical vectors where a greater proximity ...

  • Parental cognitive vulnerability during the perinatal period and its effect on mental health and the parent-infant relationship. Results from the NorBaby-study 

    Bohne, Agnes (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2023-02-10)
    Perinatal periode er en krevende overgang i livet, som medfører økt risiko for psykiske helseutfordringer. Nedsatt psykisk helse hos foreldrene utgjør risiko for foreldre-barn relasjonen og for barnets utvikling. Gjennom samspillet med sine omsorgsgivere utvikler barnet emosjonsregulering og sosiale ferdigheter. Foreldre som blir fanget i repeterende negative tanker kan ha lite kapasitet til å plukke ...
