The participants were asked to answer a questionnaire about DED, sleep quality, and happiness. P…
  • Emotion perception in habitual players of action video games. [Journal Article]
    Emotion. 2020 Jul 06 [Online ahead of print]Pichon S, Bediou B, … Bavelier D
  • Action video game players (AVGPs) display superior performance in various aspects of cognition, especially in perception and top-down attention. The existing literature has examined these performance almost exclusively with stimuli and tasks devoid of any emotional content. Thus, whether the superior performance documented in the cognitive domain extend to the emotional domain remains unknown. We…
  • From social status to emotions: Asymmetric contests predict emotional responses to victory and defeat. [Journal Article]
    Emotion. 2020 Jul 06 [Online ahead of print]Cabral JCC, de Almeida RMM
  • Social status plays a key role in expressing different emotions. However, little is known about which mechanisms underlie the variability of emotional responses that are linked to social hierarchy. Status instability-a natural characteristic of hierarchies-can help to untangle the status-emotion relationship. Therefore, we verified whether the emotional expressions of fighters could be predicted …
  • Do We Know What We Enjoy? Accuracy of Forecasted Eating Happiness. [Journal Article]
    Front Psychol. 2020; 11:1187.Villinger K, Wahl DR, … Renner B
  • Forecasting how we will react in the future is important in every area of our lives. However, people often demonstrate an "impact bias" which leads them to inaccurately forecast their affective reactions to distinct and outstanding future events. The present study examined forecasting accuracy for a day-to-day repetitive experience for which people have a wealth of past experiences (eating happin…
  • Are Positive Interventions Always Beneficial? [Journal Article]
    Span J Psychol. 2020 Jun 19; 23:e23.Briñol P, Petty RE, … Moreno L
  • Can people improve their lives by smiling more, trying to have a better posture, and by thinking about good memories? Can individuals become more successful by deliberatively engaging in positive actions and thoughts? Do people feel better by following recommendations from naïve psychology? In the present article we discuss these questions, noting that although some popular interventions thought …
  • Growing into "Us": Trajectories of Social Identification with College Sport Teams Predict Subjective Well-Being. [Journal Article]
    Appl Psychol Health Well Being. 2020 Jul 03 [Online ahead of print]Graupensperger S, Panza MJ, … Evans MB
  • CONCLUSIONS: Findings support established theory that social identification relates to well-being, while adding novel insights that students may experience unique benefits when their social identity strengthens over the course of a school year. Considering recent declines in college student well-being, groups like sport teams represent a source for social identification that should be fostered throughout the course of one's group membership.
  • Awe and the Experience of the Sublime: A Complex Relationship. [Review]
    Front Psychol. 2020; 11:1340.Arcangeli M, Sperduti M, … Dokic J
  • Awe seems to be a complex emotion or emotional construct characterized by a mix of positive (contentment, happiness), and negative affective components (fear and a sense of being smaller, humbler or insignificant). It is striking that the elicitors of awe correspond closely to what philosophical aesthetics, and especially Burke and Kant, have called "the sublime." As a matter of fact, awe is almo…
  • Emotion Recognition in Cats. [Journal Article]
    Animals (Basel). 2020 Jun 28; 10(7)Quaranta A, d'Ingeo S, … Siniscalchi M
  • Recent studies demonstrated that cats form social bonds with both conspecifics and humans. One of the key factors regulating social interactions is the transfer of emotions between the individuals. The present study aimed at investigating cats' spontaneous ability to match acoustic and visual signals for the recognition of both conspecific and human emotions. Different conspecific (cat "purr" and…
  • A qualitative study on knowledge, perception, and practice related to non-communicable diseases in relation to happiness among rural and urban residents in Bhutan. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One. 2020; 15(6):e0234257.Kohori-Segawa H, Dorji C, … Imanaka Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Across participants, health was considered as an important element of "happiness". However, lifestyle-related NCD risk factors prevailed due to the lack of effective education programs on NCDs and thus the lack of practical knowledge for NCD prevention across society. We further found that the value of happiness "finding happiness in any situation is virtue" was universal as well as other traditional values and customs, shaping people's health behaviors. From these observations, it is recommended that more practical NCD education/prevention programs should be urgently introduced in Bhutan that involve multiple generations, religion authorities, educational settings, and medical services.

  • When is search for meaning in life beneficial for well-being? A cross-national study. [Journal Article]
    Int J Psychol. 2020 Jun 28 [Online ahead of print]Lin L, Chan HW
  • Previous research has found cross-national variations in the association between search for meaning in life (SMIL) and well-being (i.e. SMIL-WB link). This study extended and tested a "self-improvement hypothesis" that accounts for such cross-national variations based on an international database-the sixth wave of World Values Survey. SMIL represents a self-improvement effort which is more demand…
  • Posttraumatic Growth: A Comprehensive Evaluation of the Recently Revised Model. [Journal Article]
    Turk Psikiyatri Derg. 2020 Spring; 31(1):57-68.Dursun P, Söylemez İ
  • For the last 30 years, the conceptualization studies of posttraumatic growth (PTG) which refer to the positive changes as a result of the struggle with adverse events, have been continuously evolving with new findings. In line with this empirical evidence, Tedeschi and colleagues have proposed a revised model in which PTG is accepted both as a process and an outcome. The roles of the concepts suc…
  • Sense of purpose in life and five health behaviors in older adults. [Journal Article]
    Prev Med. 2020 Jun 25; 139:106172.Kim ES, Shiba K, … Kubzansky LD
  • Accumulating evidence shows that a higher sense of purpose in life is associated with lower risk of chronic conditions and premature mortality. Health behaviors might partially explain these findings, however, the prospective association between sense of purpose and health behaviors is understudied. We tested whether a higher sense of purpose at baseline was associated with lower likelihood of de…
  • A survey about the contents and features of oncology clinical pharmacy services and self-evaluations of the oncology pharmacists in China. [Journal Article]
    J Clin Pharm Ther. 2020 Jun 26 [Online ahead of print]Wang Y, Dai Y, … Li G
  • CONCLUSIONS: The respondents of the 166 valid questionnaires were from 29 provinces (or autonomous regions or municipalities). Their average working experience for clinical pharmacy was 4.86 years. The average duration of their clinical services was 3.27 h/d. The clinical pharmacy services consist of 15 types, and their workload on each service type was summarized. Pharmacists are not frequently participating in establishing pharmacotherapy protocols, therapeutic drug monitoring and pharmacogenetic/pharmacogenomic services. About 80% (81.33%) of the pharmacists thought that other healthcare professionals knew the nature of their work. The biggest barrier for career development of the pharmacists was insufficiency of professional skills. In most cases, the clinical service accounted for <30% of the overall performance evaluation of the pharmacists. Most of the participating pharmacists were not satisfied with their current salary. The overall evaluation score for their career happiness was 6.27 out of 10.The value of oncology clinical pharmacists is being increasingly recognized, but advanced services need further expansion. Increasing the time serving in patient care, optimizing performance evaluation mechanisms and strengthening their skills are possible ways for pharmacists to provide superior services. This study showed the current service of oncology clinical pharmacists in most parts of China, which may provide reference for policymakers, promote international communications and shed light on future development of oncology clinical pharmacy.
