  • Dynamic Range Processing’s Influence on Perceived Timing in Electronic Dance Music 

    Brøvig-Hanssen, Ragnhild; Sandvik, Bjørnar Ersland; Aareskjold-Drecker, Jon Marius (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-05)
    In this article, we explore the extent to which dynamic range processing (such as compression and sidechain compression) influences our perception of a sound signal’s temporal placement in music. Because compression reshapes the sound signal’s envelope, scholars have previously noted that certain uses of sidechain compression can produce peculiar rhythmic effects. In this article, we have tried to ...
  • Patients' perception of user involvement in psychiatric outpatient treatment: Associations with patient characteristics and satisfaction 

    Thimm, Jens; Antonsen, Liss; Malmedal, Wenche Karin (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-16)
    <i>Background</i> - The patient's right to be involved in treatment decisions is anchored in guidelines and legislation in many countries. Previous research suggests challenges in the implementation of user involvement across different areas of health care, including mental health. However, little is known about psychiatric outpatients’ experiences of being involved in their treatment.<p><p> <i ...
  • Terrestrial Inputs Drive Seasonality in Organic Matter and Nutrient Biogeochemistry in a High Arctic Fjord System (Isfjorden, Svalbard) 

    Mcgovern, Maeve; Pavlov, Alexey K.; Deininger, Anne; Granskog, Mats; Leu, Eva Susanne; Søreide, Janne; Poste, Amanda (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-08)
    Climate-change driven increases in temperature and precipitation are leading to increased discharge of freshwater and terrestrial material to Arctic coastal ecosystems. These inputs bring sediments, nutrients and organic matter (OM) across the land-ocean interface with a range of implications for coastal ecosystems and biogeochemical cycling. To investigate responses to terrestrial inputs, physicochemical ...

    Despite more than 250 years of taxonomic research, we still have only a vague idea about the true size and composition of the faunas and floras of the planet. Many biodiversity inventories provide limited insight because they focus on a small taxonomic subsample or a tiny geographic area. Here, we report on the size and composition of the Swedish insect fauna, thought to represent roughly half of ...
  • Ecophysiological traits of mixotrophic Strombidium spp 

    Maselli, Maira; Altenburger, Andreas; Stoecker, Diane K.; Hansen, Per Juel (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-09-07)
    Ciliates represent an important trophic link between nanoplankton and mesoplankton. Many species acquire functional chloroplasts from photosynthetic prey, being thus mixotrophs. Little is known about which algae they exploit, and of the relevance of inorganic carbon assimilation to their metabolism. To get insights into these aspects, laboratory cultures of three mixotrophic <i>Strombidium</i> spp. ...
