The effects of alcohol intoxication on neuronal activation at different levels of cognitive load
(Bentham Open, 2008-08-22)
The aim of this study was to investigate how alcohol intoxication at two blood alcohol concentrations (BAC) affected neuronal activation during increasing levels of cognitive load. For this purpose we used functional ...
The Role of the Corpus Callosum and Interhemispheric Connectivity in Tourette Syndrome
(The University of Bergen, 2006-10-20)
(The University of Bergen, 2002)
Objective: In a previous study in New Zealand, the newly developed Modern Health Worries Scale (MHW) was significantly correlated with Subjective Health Complaints (SHC) and health care utilization. The aim of the present ...
MRI measures of brain volume and cortical complexity in clinical groups and during development
(The University of Bergen, 2009-05-07)
The complex structure of the surface of the brain might elude classical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) methods of characterization, when it comes to measures of surface irregularities. Such measures may be important ...
The attention network test: a characteristic pattern of deficits in children with ADHD
(BioMed Central, 2008-02-12)
Background: The Attention Network test (ANT) gives measures of different aspects of the complex process of attention. We ask if children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) will show a characteristic ...
APOE status and its association to learning and memory performance in middle aged and older Norwegians seeking assessment for memory deficits
(BioMed Central, 2007-10-31)
Background: We examined the hypothesis that deficits in learning, memory, and other cognitive functions are associated with the ε4 allele of the Apolipoprotein E (APOE) gene in a non-demented sample with memory complaints ...
Communication difficulties in children identified with psychiatric problems
(The University of Bergen, 2010-09-27)

The effects of background noise on asymmetrical speech perception
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-24)
The present thesis aimed at examining the effects of environmental background noise on asymmetrical speech perception. To assess asymmetrical speech perception, the Bergen Dichotic Listening (DL) task with consonant-vowel ...
The role of the primary auditory cortex in the neural mechanism of auditory verbal hallucinations
Auditory verbal hallucinations (AVHs) are a subjective experience of “hearing voices” in the absence of corresponding physical stimulation in the environment. The most remarkable feature of AVHs is their perceptual quality, ...
The neural correlates of sex differences in left-right confusion
(Elsevier Inc., 2015-03-14)
Difficulties in left–right discrimination (LRD) are commonly experienced in everyday life situations. Here we investigate the neurocognitive mechanisms of LRD and the specific role of left angular gyrus. Given that previous ...
