      Understanding the association between autonomic nervous system [ANS] function and brain morphology across the lifespan provides important insights into neurovisceral mechanisms underlying health and disease. Resting‐state ...
    • Is Dispositional Self-Compassion Associated With Psychophysiological Flexibility Beyond Mindfulness? An Exploratory Pilot Study 

      Svendsen, Julie Lillebostad; Schanche, Elisabeth; Osnes, Berge; Vøllestad, Jon; Visted, Endre; Dundas, Ingrid; Nordby, Helge; Binder, Per-Einar; Sørensen, Lin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background: Dispositional mindfulness and self-compassion are shown to associate with less self-reported emotional distress. However, previous studies have indicated that dispositional self-compassion may be an even more ...
    • Listening to rhythmic music reduces connectivity within the basal ganglia and the reward system 

      Brodal, Hans Petter; Osnes, Berge; Specht, Karsten (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2017-03-28)
      Music can trigger emotional responses in a more direct way than any other stimulus. In particular, music-evoked pleasure involves brain networks that are part of the reward system. Furthermore, rhythmic music stimulates ...
    • A psychophysiological investigation of the interplay between orienting and executive control during stimulus conflict: A heart rate variability study 

      Sørensen, Lin; Wass, Sam Vincent; Osnes, Berge; Schanche, Elisabeth; Adolfsdottir, Steinunn; Svendsen, Julie Lillebostad; Visted, Endre; Eilertsen, Thomas; Jensen, Daniel André; Nordby, Helge; Fasmer, Ole Bernt; Binder, Per-Einar; Koenig, Julian; Sonuga-Barke, Edmund J.S. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-11)
      Background It has been hypothesized that resting state cardiac vagal activity (CVA) - an indicator of parasympathetic nervous system activity - is a specific psychophysiological marker of executive control function. Here, ...
    • Resting States Are Resting Traits – An fMRI Study of Sex Differences and Menstrual Cycle Effects in Resting State Cognitive Control Networks
