Emotional Contagion Ability Scale: Compilation and empirical validity for Chinese college students

The research aimed to create a reliable and valid questionnaire for assessing trait emotional contagion ability in Chinese college students. Through two studies, the final 12-item Emotional Contagion Ability Scale demonstrated high reliability and validity, providing a valid tool for laboratory-based emotional contagion research among college students.

The Influence of Cultural Background Information on Emotional Body Language Recognition

This study investigates how cultural background influences emotion recognition, particularly in relation to emotional body language (EBL). The findings reveal that cultural context significantly impacts individuals' ability to recognize and interpret EBL, highlighting the importance of considering cultural nuances in cross-cultural communication.

The individualism and collectivism of culture characteristics and their influence on emotional contagion

This research explores the cultural characteristics of Chinese college students, noting the evolving shift towards individualism while maintaining interdependent self-construction. The study, conducted through World Values Survey analysis and questionnaire-based assessments, reveals an increasing trend of individualistic behaviors among the younger generation, yet highlights the persistent influence of interdependence on emotional contagion abilities, particularly noting a negative correlation between anxious contagion and independent self-construction.

Effects of predictability on the time course of identity information and location information in Chinese word recognition.

This study investigates the encoding of Chinese character identity and location information in word recognition, revealing that the effects of transposed non-words differ based on prime duration. Additionally, in sentence reading, the research suggests a separation of identity and location information encoding, with location information exhibiting flexibility in early parafoveal processing, influenced by predictability.

The differences between silent and oral reading

This study highlights distinctions between silent and oral reading, encompassing differences in reading behaviors, cognitive mechanisms, and brain arousal. The suggested future research areas include exploring the transition from oral to silent reading, examining eye movement disparities in the development of reading modes, and investigating the impact of pronunciation and background music on reading experiences.
