      Dementia with Lewy Bodies (DLB) is a common neurodegenerative disorder with poor prognosis and mainly unknown pathophysiology. Heritability estimates exceed 30% but few genetic risk variants have been identified. Here we ...
    • Genetic risk score associations for myocardial infarction are comparable in persons with and without rheumatoid arthritis: the population-based HUNT study 

      Rostami, Sina; Hoff, Mari; Dalen, Håvard; Hveem, Kristian; Videm, Vibeke (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Persons with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have increased risk of myocardial infarction (MI). Overlapping associations with MI of weighted genetic risk scores (wGRS) for coronary artery disease (CAD) and RA is unknown in a ...
    • Meta-analysis of Alzheimer’s disease on 9,751 samples from Norway and IGAP study identifies four risk loci

      A large fraction of genetic risk factors for Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is still not identified, limiting the understanding of AD pathology and study of therapeutic targets. We conducted a genome-wide association study (GWAS) ...
    • The Direction of Tumour Growth in Glioblastoma Patients 

      Esmaeili, Morteza; Stensjøen, Anne Line; Berntsen, Erik Magnus; Solheim, Ole; Reinertsen, Ingerid (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Generating MR-derived growth pattern models for glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) has been an attractive approach in neuro-oncology, suggesting a distinct pattern of lesion spread with a tendency in growing along the white ...
    • Trajectories of brain development in school-age children born preterm with very low birth weight 

      Sripada, Kam; Bjuland, Knut Jørgen; Sølsnes, Anne Elisabeth; Håberg, Asta; Grunewaldt, Kristine Hermansen; Løhaugen, Gro; Rimol, Lars Morten; Skranes, Jon Sverre (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Preterm birth (gestational age < 37 weeks) with very low birth weight (VLBW, birth weight ≤ 1500 g) is associated with lifelong cognitive deficits, including in executive function, and persistent alterations in cortical ...
    • Within-session verbal learning slope is predictive of lifespan delayed recall, hippocampal volume, and memory training benefit, and is heritable
