Article
Full-text available
Information transmission in a society depends on individuals’ intention to share or not. Yet, little is known about whether being the gatekeeper shapes the brain’s processing of incoming information. Here, we examine how thinking about sharing affects neural encoding of information, and whether this effect is moderated by the person’s real-life soc...
Article
The authors demonstrate a novel template-based approach to profiling brand image using functional magnetic resonance imaging. They compare consumers’ brain responses during passive viewing of visual templates (photos depicting various social scenarios) and brain responses during active visualizing of a brand’s image, and then they generate individu...
Article
Self-control is of vital importance for human wellbeing. Hare et al. (2009) were among the first to provide empirical evidence on the neural correlates of self-control. This seminal study profoundly impacted theory and empirical work across multiple fields. To solidify the empirical evidence supporting self-control theory, we conducted a preregiste...
Article
Information sharing within social networks can catalyze widespread attitudinal and behavioral change and the chance to share information with others has been characterized as inherently valuable to people. But what are the sources of value and how might they be leveraged to promote sharing? We test ideas from the value-based virality model that the...

We investigate the gap between sharing and reading information on social media by multiple methods. Analysis of a neuroimaging dataset shows that news articles with high click-throughs on Facebook evoked greater value-related brain activity, while greater affect-related brain activity was associated with high share-forwards, suggesting that affecti...
Preprint
Information transmission within social networks is crucial for widespread attitudinal and behavioral change. We propose that the value of sharing information increases when people perceive messages as more relevant to themselves and to people they know, resulting in stronger intentions to share. Six online studies (N participants = 3,727; messages...
Article
Self-reflection and thinking about the thoughts and behaviors of others are important skills for humans to function in the social world. These two processes overlap in terms of the component processes involved, and share overlapping functional organizations within the human brain, in particular within the medial prefrontal cortex (MPFC). Several fu...

This study explored the feasibility of using shared neural patterns from brief affective episodes (viewing affective pictures) to decode extended, dynamic affective sequences in a naturalistic experience (watching movie-trailers). Twenty-eight participants viewed pictures from the International Affective Picture System (IAPS) and, in a separate ses...
Article
Full-text available
The extent to which brains respond similarly to a specific stimulus, across a small group of individuals, has been previously found to predict out-of-sample aggregate preference for that stimulus. However, the location in the brain where neural similarity predicts out-of-sample preference remains unclear. In this article, we attempt to identify the...

Article
Objective: To assess the perceived importance of childbearing and attitudes toward assisted reproductive technology (ART) among Chinese lesbians and the impact on their psychological well-being. Design: Survey-based study using a 39-item questionnaire. Setting: Not applicable. Patient(s): A total of 438 Chinese lesbians between the ages of 1...
Article
The aim of this study is to investigate how women with different diagnoses on their cause of infertility—non-idiopathic (female, male, mixed), or idiopathic (unknown causes)—display different levels of psychosocial well-being prior to their IVF treatment. Women who attended an assisted reproduction clinic were recruited to fill out a set of questio...
Article
Full-text available
What are the levels of awareness regarding female fertility and the intentions and attitudes towards parenthood among Chinese university students in Hong Kong compared with their counterparts in the West? Chinese university students in Hong Kong were similarly over-optimistic about the age-related fertility decline, although they were less inclined...
Article
Full-text available
This study aimed to validate a self-report assessment instrument developed based on the affliction-equanimity model of holistic well-being. An expert panel developed a pool of items, which were tested through an online questionnaire. Exploratory and confirmatory analyses were conducted. The analyses revealed seven factors related to affliction and...
Article
Objectives. This study examined the efficacy of a group intervention, the Integrative Body-Mind-Spirit (I-BMS) intervention, which aims at improving the psychosocial and spiritual well-being of Chinese women undergoing their first IVF treatment cycle. Design. The I-BMS intervention facilitates the search of meaning of life in the context of family...
Article
Psychosocial programs designed for cancer patients often facilitate the search for meaning as one of the therapeutic components. This study aimed to develop a self-report instrument, namely Chinese Cancer Coherence Scale (CCCS), which measures the patients' meaning-making process with reference to the concept of coherence. A panel of eight veteran...
Article
Full-text available
This study reports the results of a survey on death preparation, death-related beliefs, and death anxiety in a Hong Kong sample. Respondents ( N = 285) recruited from the community were asked if they have prepared for them-selves a life insurance, a will, and a resting place (e.g. burial site, columbarium, etc.). Questions about their death-related...
Article
To evaluate the effect of the Eastern Body-Mind-Spirit (EBMS) group intervention on anxiety-reduction of Chinese women undergoing IVF. Randomized controlled study. Tertiary assisted reproduction unit. Two hundred twenty-seven women undergoing their first cycle of IVF treatment. The intervention group (n = 69) received four sessions of EBMS group co...
Article
This study presented preliminary results on the efficacy of a novel group debriefing model called Strength-Focused and Meaning-Oriented Approach for Resilience and Transformation (SMART). The SMART debriefing (1) aimed at boosting resilience and catalyzing transformation among persons undergoing stressful events, (2) adopted a growth-oriented and h...
Article
Full-text available
This article introduces the Strength-focused and Meaning- oriented Approach to Resilience and Transformation (SMART) as a model of crisis intervention, which aims at discovering inner strengths through meaning reconstruction. Limitations of conventional crisis management and current findings in post-traumatic growth research are discussed. Instead...
