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.
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.
Main author: Svava Dögg Jónsdóttir. The aims of this study are to assess the prevalence of workplace sexual harassment and violence in a nationally representative sample of Icelandic women with regard to demographic characteristics and work sectors.
