      Aamodt, Eva Birgitte; Alnæs, Dag; de Lange, Ann-Marie Glasø; Aam, Stina; Schellhorn, Till; Saltvedt, Ingvild Tina; Beyer, Mona Kristiansen; Westlye, Lars Tjelta (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022)
      Advanced age is associated with post-stroke cognitive decline. Machine learning based on brain scans can be used to estimate brain age of patients, and the corresponding difference from chronological age, the brain age gap ...
    • Longitudinal trajectories of functional recovery after hip fracture 

      Dakhil, Shams; Saltvedt, Ingvild Tina; Saltyte Benth, Jurate; Thingstad, Anne Pernille Mæhle; Watne, Leiv; Wyller, Torgeir Bruun; Helbostad, Jorunn Hege Lægdheim; Frihagen, Frede; Johnsen, Lars Gunnar; Taraldsen, Kristin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2023)
