  • Kamble, Nilesh; Wolfrum, Manpreet; Halbritter, Thomas; Sigurdsson, Snorri; Richert, Clemens (Wiley, 2020-01-21)
    Studying nucleic acids often requires labeling. Many labeling approaches require covalent bonds between the nucleic acid and the label, which complicates experimental procedures. Noncovalent labeling avoids the need for highly specific reagents and ...
  • Einarsdóttir, Margrét (Laeknabladid/The Icelandic Medical Journal, 2019-02-05)
    Inngangur Einkenni frá stoðkerfi eru algeng meðal unglinga og vitað er að slík einkenni á unglingsárum geta leitt til langvarandi stoðkerfisvandamála á fullorðinsárum. Stoðkerfisvandamál eru vaxandi meðal vinnandi fullorðins fólks og með algengari ...
  • Harðarson, Gísli (Linguistic Society of America, 2020-03-23)
    This paper discusses parallels between the conditioning of phonological processes at the word- and phrase-level. The approach taken here is a direct reference approach in which apparent mismatches between morphosyntactic domains and phonological domains ...
  • Fenger, Paula; Harðarson, Gísli (Linguistic Society of America, 2018-03-03)
    The expression of number (#) within the noun phrase has been argued tovary between a high (num) and a low position, which Kramer (2014) associates with n, providing the root with a syntactic category. We argue that Linking Morphemes (L) in Dutch provide ...
  • Harðarson, Gísli (Penn Graduate Linguistics Society, 2018-03-30)
    In this paper, I derive the asymmetries in morphosyntactic behaviors of synthetic and primary compounds through differences in terms of their formation. Following that, I examine how the resulting structures may regulate the interactions between the ...
  • Atacho, Diahann A. M.; Reynisson, Hallur; Pétursdóttir, Anna Þóra; Eysteinsson, Thor; Steingrimsson, Eirikur; Petersen, Petur Henry (Society for Neuroscience, 2020-03)
    Neuroplasticity forms the basis for neuronal circuit complexity and differences between otherwise similar circuits. We show that the microphthalmia-associated transcription factor (Mitf) plays a central role in intrinsic plasticity of olfactory bulb ...
  • Salazar, Alejandro; Rousk, Kathrin; Jónsdóttir, Ingibjörg Svala; Bellenger, Jean‐Philippe; Andrésson, Ólafur (Wiley, 2019-12-31)
    Warming can alter the biogeochemistry and ecology of soils. These alterations can be particularly large in high northern latitude ecosystems, which are experiencing the most intense warming globally. In this meta‐analysis, we investigated global trends ...

    Vaccinations with the 10-valent pneumococcal conjugated vaccine (PHiD-CV) started in Iceland in 2011. Protein D (PD) from H. influenzae, which is coded for by the hpd gene, is used as a conjugate in the vaccine and may provide protection against ...

    Dual wavelength retinal oximetry has been developed for adults, but is not available for infants. Retinal oximetry may provide insight into the pathophysiology of oxygen-mediated diseases like retinopathy of prematurity. More insight in the oxygen ...

    Background Every year a substantial number of children are affected by natural disasters worldwide. However, data are scarce on long-term psychological impact of natural disasters on children's health. Identifying risk factors and outcomes associated ...

    Low energy and protein intakes have been associated with an increased risk of malnutrition in outpatients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). We aimed to assess the energy and protein intakes of hospitalised COPD patients according to ...

    Introduction Intervention studies have mainly used oral nutritional supplements (ONS) for the management of patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) identified as at nutritional risk. In this 12-month randomised feasibility trial, we ...
  • Einarsdóttir, Þorgerður J.; Rafnsdóttir, Gudbjörg LINDA; Valdimarsdóttir, Margrét (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2019-04-01)
    High levels of women in politics and paid work, together with the availability of paid parental leave and public child care, make the gender imbalance in business leadership in Iceland all the more confounding. This study analyzes business leaders’ ...

    Pressurised meltwater has a major impact on ice dynamics, as well as on sedimentary and deformational processes occurring below/in front of glaciers and ice sheets, but its role in glaciotectonic processes is yet to be fully understood. This study ...
  • Helgason, Agnar (Institute of Public Administration and Politics - Icelandic Review of Politics and Administration, 2018-12-13)
    Conventional wisdom suggests that occupational class plays a limited role in explaining vote choice in Iceland. In this paper, we argue that the death of class in Icelandic politics may be premature and that it still plays a role in structuring political ...

    Increasing water temperatures are predicted around the globe, with high amplitudes of warming in Subarctic and Arctic regions where Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) populations currently flourish. We reconstructed oxygen isotope and temperature chronologies ...

    This article examines LGBQ migrants’ experiences of living in Iceland, with a focus on LGBQ migrants from the Global South. LGBQ migrants may belong to various communities, for example, to their ethnic community, the queer community and to the wider ...

    Breast cancer (BC) is the most prevalent type of cancer in women in western countries. BC mortality has not declined despite early detection by screening, indicating the need for better informed treatment decisions. Therefore, a novel noninvasive ...

    Both intact and deficient neural processing of faces has been found in dyslexic readers. Similarly, behavioral studies have shown both normal and abnormal face processing in developmental dyslexia. We tested whether dyslexic adults are impaired in tests ...
