As a Quantitative Psychologist in training, my research interests fall under two broad categories, namely the development of quantitative research methodologies and the application of these methods in psychological research.
My research interests include parenting styles, achievement motivation, academic-related patterns and the internalization process of Chinese students. Furthermore, I also focus to unveil the cultural differences in terms of the cultural meanings attached to the differential parenting styles and learning motivation and academic achievement of students in the school settings between the West and the East.
My research interests are in social psychology and cognitive psychology. A major goal of my current research is to understand how cultural background and cognitive factors affect individual behavior and mental health. I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Applied Psychology from Anyang Normal University and Master’s Degree in Basic Psychology from Southwest University.
My current research interest is mainly concerned with addictive behavior, like drinking, gambling, internet addiction and I am also interested in health behavior and life history theory. I want to find effective psychological methods to solve people’s unhealthy behavior.
My current research interest is life history strategy and its association with individual’s prosocial and moral behaviors. My previous work focused on moral judgment in moral dilemma. And I am also interested in other social behaviors such as altruistic or prosocial behaviors. I find it fascinating to interpret human’s social behaviors via theories of evolutionary psychology. So during my PhD study, I aim to explore individual’s social behaviors in the evolutionary perspective.
My current research area is in Intervention and health psychology, including mindset intervention towards people in low socioeconomic status or AIDS orphans. I am also interested in the influence of fibre consumption intervention on individual cognitive function, which is the main project completed in my master degree in University of Leeds.
My current research interest is to explore different human behaviors and personalities in different regions from the perspective of evolutionary psychology. And I will specialize in life history theory and cultural evolution.
A primary goal of my research is to understand the development of social cognition. My current research is specifically focused on the interplay between theory of mind and decision making as well as the developmental changes in these processes. Through this line of research, we aim to elucidate the role of the developing theory of mind in human decision making process and hopefully contribute to a better understanding of the development of social minds.
My research area is in social psychology, focus on individual’s addictive behavior, like Internet addiction, Internet gaming disorder, problematic social media use, etc. I am interested in using multi-method to research the motives, influenced conditions and individual characters of these unhealthy behaviors, and find some interventions.
My current research area is mainly focus on health psychology, especially on resilience of children affected by parental HIV/AIDS. I am also interested in exploring cognitive abilities development using variety methods, such as ERP.
My research aims to understand individual differences in cognition and its development. One line of my research focuses on the relationship between endogenous hormone and cognition, and another line focuses on the changes of cognitive ability (e.g., attention, memory, cognitive control) in different individual growth stages. In my current research, I use behavioral and neuroscience methods to study the effect of puberty, menstrual cycle, and menopause on changes of cognition.
I have three intersecting lines of research. The first line of my research is on resilience and negative emotional reactions in the face of extreme adversity. I aim to understand the content and process underlying some traumatic experiences and to improve survivors’ resilience and well-being. The second line is on the personal recovery of mental illness, wherein people with lived experience are encouraged and empowered to live a satisfying, hopeful, and contributing life and pursue personally meaningful goals. The third line is on longitudinal work to examine the mechanism of cyberbullying.
I am interested in cognitive bias in gambling (e.g., attentional bias). I also aim to test whether and how positive psychological factors (e.g., purpose in life; self-compassion) affect gambling behavior, finding effective interventions for gambling disorder.
My current research interests mainly focus on behavioral additions (e.g., gambling addiction, Internet gaming addiction and Internet addiction) from the perspective of neuroscience to investigate the neural correlates underlying behavioral addictions. Moreover, I am also interested in investigating internal protective factors to further conduct the treatments and interventions for those addictions.
My research interests are in understanding neuroimaging characteristics and biological processes in psychiatry disease (schizophrenia, depression and addictive disorders). My research is going to focus on multisensory neuroimaging in healthy and mental disease subjects.
I am interested in underlying brain mechanisms that support different cognitive processes such as perception, attention and memory. I hope to understand the mind and brain with inter-discipline explorations, applications of a variety of techniques like fMRI, EEG, and psychophysical experiments. Whilst, I have a broad interest in philosophy.
My current research interests focus on psycholinguistics, psychophysics, experimental psychology, and cognitive psychology. I am interested in investigating reading behavior in Chinese and Japanese by using the eye-tracking technique, such as perceptual span in sentence reading and semantic processing among second language learners and native speakers.
