Adding another dimension to history effects in vision: Positive serial dependence effects in Virtual Reality

Main author: Ömer Dağlar Tanrıkulu
Our perceptual judgments on visual features are biased towards previously encountered stimuli. We investigated such perceptual biases in a virtual reality environment. Our results indicate that more realistic 3D visual scenes enhances such positive biases.

Adverse childhood experiences and resilience in adulthood: evidence from the Stress-And-Gene-Analysis Cohort

Main author: Hilda Björk Daníelsdóttir. We investigated associations between adverse childhood experiences and two distinct measures of adult resilience, i.e. perceived coping ability and an outcome-based measure of low psychiatric morbidity, in a large nationwide study of trauma-exposed Icelandic women.

Climate change and child health

Geir Gunnlaugsson. Climate change is associated with a negative impact on health for all. Children will, e.g., experience higher mortality and morbidity rates attributable to PM2.5, ozone, and household air pollution. All health professionals have a role to play in mitigation efforts.

Estimation of community drug abuse in the Reykjavik metropolitan area by wastewater-based epidemiology

Aðalhöfundur: Arndís Sue Ching Löve
Trends in illicit drug use in Reykjavik was estimated by using wastewater-based epidemiology. Wastewater samples were collected regularly from 2017 to 2020. Results showed increased cocaine use and changes in patterns of use during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Medication use in exposed populations following the 2010 Eyjafjallajökull eruption: An interrupted time series analysis

Main author: Rebekka Björg Guðmundsdóttir.

This population-based register study suggests that the Eyjafjallajökull 2010 volcanic eruption in Iceland did not lead to any substantial changes in medication dispensing among people living in highly exposed areas.
