1. Cognitive Psychology Research and Development Topics-  Common Learning and Working Memory Training


【Introduction to the theme】

In this symposium, we use memory as a framework to discuss the operation of memory from two directions. The first lecture, titled "Relationship on the regulation of mutual aid in memory", explored the influence of the degree of relationship intimacy between two people on memory performance in the context of co-learning. The second topic is "Effects of Refresher Training on Working Memory and Fluid Intelligence", hoping to explore whether refresher training can promote working memory and fluid intelligence. Starting from these two different levels of human memory related research, we hope to further think and discuss the operating mechanism of the human memory system.

2. Quantitative Psychology Research and Development Topics - Towards a More Mature Quantitative Psychology Profession: Opportunities and Challenges

【Introduction to the theme】

Several important research topics promoted by psychometric scholars at the beginning of the 21st century have been impacted by bioinformatics, artificial intelligence, and biomedical engineering, and have produced huge fluctuations in the past 20 years; The multidimensional scaling method developed by data such as unique preferences, sorting or judgment has been valued by the bioinformatics department and combined with the data visualization technology of information engineering. The research topic of the gate is even more prominent in data visualization than the traditional multi-scale method. In addition, young scholars who have received professional training in magnetic encephalography and magnetic resonance imaging experiments continue to use the software packages developed by non-metrics majors (such as biomedical engineering) to train students and publish papers, and there is no need to directly cooperate with the field of metrology. Psychometric scholars face the crossroads of continuing to push traditional topics, or actively integrating with other disciplines. Based on the experience of working closely with psychologists, the forum's introductory examines the core values of psychology, and discusses how to cultivate a more mature psychometric profession through collaborative research in the future, and how to work with psychologists to protect their own learning. The core value of the door.

6. Research and Development Theme in the Field of Physiological Psychology: Neural Mechanism of Memory

​【Theme Introduction】

Memory is a very important topic in the field of psychology, and the research of biopsychological orientation plays a very important role here. With the help of animal models, scholars can gain insight into how brain regions work together in the neural mechanisms of memory. The types of memory explored in the two papers in this forum are fear conditioning and complex social memory. In fear conditioning, the coordination and cooperation between the hippocampus and the amygdala constitute the core of the fear memory processing mechanism. In the complex social memory processing program, scholars have found that the cerebellum also plays an important role.

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed a lot of things, and it has had a big impact on teaching, assessment, and counseling. The epidemic has changed digital learning from optional to mandatory, and teaching materials in the form of videos are the most common and most popular digital teaching materials for learners. This forum will analyze the characteristics of teaching materials in the form of video and their possible negative effects on learning from the perspective of cognitive load theory, introduce the implementation platform designed from the perspective of element interaction, and use an experimental result to illustrate how the design helps learners to carry out When learning from the film, you can benefit from it and avoid its harm. The epidemic is both a hindrance and a boost to psychological and educational tests. Resistance is because students cannot be present to take the test, it needs to be developed into an online test and cheating is prevented, which increases the difficulty and fairness of the test; assistance is that computer multimedia and adaptive test technology can be used to increase the authenticity and efficiency of test questions, improve Test validity and reliability. This forum will discuss the current development and future trends of these two aspects. The epidemic has made communication counseling an indispensable medium. In 2019, the Ministry of Health and Welfare announced the reference principles for psychologists to perform communication psychological counseling business approval operations, so that localities have the opportunity to gradually develop communication psychological counseling business.

​Neural and Physiological Psychology Forum: Neural Mechanism of Reward Value Judgment

​【Theme Introduction】

​The topic of this forum is the neural mechanism of reward value judgment, which is a very important link in the theory of constraint learning. When faced with changes in the environment, individuals must be able to quickly and correctly change their behavior to adapt to the environment. A phenomenon that often occurs in environmental changes is that reward rules and values change. Are individuals sensitive to the frequency and regularity of reward occurrences? Where are the areas in the brain that process reward information? And after the reward rules are changed, how to suppress the old behavioral responses? And what areas of the brain are used to process negative rewards like taste-aversion conditioning? These issues can be studied in depth using animal models. Papers published in this forum explore the roles of brain regions such as the basal ganglia circuits, prefrontal cortex, and amygdala in reward value judgment mechanisms. Research in the field of biological psychology allows us to gain insight into the neural mechanisms behind behavior.

Developmental Psychology Forum: A Comparative Study on the Diversity of Postpartum Childcare Support for Working Women and the Well-being of Mothers and Children in China, Japan, and Korea: Toward Science-based Childcare and Employment Support

​【Theme Introduction】

Background: China, Japan, and Korea have a lot in common in terms of geography, history, and culture. For example, while women's participation in society has been expected in each country in recent years, women's status is still low in the three countries , and the balance between mothers' return to work after childbirth and childcare is a social issue. In this symposium, we will introduce our ongoing comparative study on the diversity of postpartum childcare support for working women and the well-being of mothers and children in China, Japan, and Korea.

In this project, we will compare the similarities and differences among the three neighboring countries from an international perspective and aim to provide mutually helpful information and effective solutions. The research goals: In this symposium, prof. Yato gives an overview of our project, and then introduces her ongoing research 'Ibaraki Cohort', a long-term longitudinal study aiming to clarify the influence of social and physical environmental factors on parenting and children's development. This study also aims to develop and implement a childcare support system that can promote early detection and intervention for problems in the parent-child interaction, through the conduction of successive investigations with children and their parents. Method: The study participants were recruited from pregnant women who visited the Ibaraki City Health Center to receive their Maternal and Child Health Handbook.

Ibaraki Cohort Study is the continuous surveys of women who are 14 and 25 weeks of pregnancy, and postpartum periods from 1month. Quantitative and qualitative data are collected through various methods, such as behavioral observations, behavior measurement, interviews, physiological indices such as saliva collected from the caregivers, and web-based questionnaires to collect quantitative data on socio-economic status, academic background, quality of life, the development of infants' sociability, difficulties in child-rearing, maternal stress and so on.

Results: As of August 2021, 254 mothers and their children participate in this study, and the oldest children have reached the age of three years. Some of the results are as follows; (a) maternal child-rearing styles are related to children's social development, (b)maternal cortisol levels during pregnancy and postpartum oxytocin levels are associated with social development in children, (c)maternal depression scale scores are higher and quality of life was lower in early pregnancy than late pregnancy, (d) the more support the husband provides for childcare and housework, the better the mother's QOL and the higher the quality of her relationship with her child, and (e)The mothers' experiences of being reared by their parents also influences the relationship with their children. Conclusion: As further study, we will apply the methodology and the findings accumulated in the Ibaraki cohort to the surveys in China and Korea for unprecedented cross-cultural study.

​Open and Reproducible Science Forum: International efforts to improve psychological science.

​【Theme Introduction】

Beyond the local psychological issues, the challenges for psychological science are changing the norms and values of psychological researches. In comprison with the sophistication and innoviation, many Western psycholgoical researchers appraise the transparency and rigor. The Society for the Improvement of Psychological Science (SIPS) have provided the platforms for the psychologists who are improving the research methods and practices. Since 2016, many proposals have turned to the global research projects or distributed networkings for divided pruposes. In this symposium five project leaders and representatives share the current situation and achivements. At Q&A section we will answer the questions and discuss the plans to manage these projects in Taiwan. This symposium introduce five projects by asynchronized talks:


  • Open Scholarship Knowledge Base - "a community of volunteer advocates working with researchers, educators, and anyone interested in open scholarship to build a knowledge base so that researchers and users can discover and apply open practices."

  • ReproducibiliTea - "a grassroots journal club initiative that helps researchers create local Open Science journal clubs at their universities to discuss diverse issues, papers and ideas about improving science, reproducibility and the Open Science movement."

  • Framework for Open and Reproducible Research Training – “a networking brings together educators and scholars working to improve teaching and mentoring practices in higher education.”

  • Non-WIERD guidelines – “a project to aid academic members evaluate and increase diversity and inclusion in psychological research studies.”

  • Crowd science – “a project aims to promote the diversity, rigor, and reliability of scientific research.”

​Personality and Social Psychology Forum: Contemporary Appearance of Parent/Child/Generation/Interrelationships in Taiwan: An Analysis of Chinese Family Dynamics

​【Theme Introduction】

Chinese attach great importance to family, and even in the midst of drastic social changes, family harmony is still the most important core value of Taiwanese people. Traditional Chinese families take the relationship between father and son as the main axis, and attach importance to authority, inheritance and norms. Under the changes of modern values and social forms, autonomy and emotion representing equal rights play an indispensable linking function in the relationship between parents and children. What characteristics does the parent-child relationship of contemporary Taiwanese people show in the existing value norms, mutual support, and emotional connection? How are these characteristics manifested in different life stages and identities? In order to understand the contemporary appearance of parent-child relationships in Taiwan, we have planned this topic. This topic consists of three papers, based on Chinese family dynamics database data to conduct empirical research, to explore the impact of parent-child relationship on the mental health of unmarried people (Part 1), the relationship between adult children and middle-aged and elderly parents' support, emotion, and quality of life. Two-way influence (Part 2), and the influence of grandchildren on the marital relationship of married people (Part 3), from the perspectives of individuals, both parents and children, and the three generations of grandparents and grandchildren, this series examines the relatives/children/generations of Taiwanese people /Interrelationships and their functional roles. We also look forward to stimulating more exchanges and dialogues conceptually, empirically and practically through the presentation and discussion of this topic.

Forum on Neurological and Physiological Psychology: Animal Models of Mental Illness

​【Theme Introduction】

​The topic of this forum is the application of animal models in mental illness. Animal models are an integral part of the development of new treatments. The establishment of an animal model of mental illness is more challenging than other simpler physical illnesses. Because the causes of many mental illnesses are quite complex, their pathological mechanisms are often still unknown. The five papers presented this time focus on animal models of post-traumatic stress disorder, schizophrenia, ADHD, and epilepsy. In addition to exploring the pathological mechanisms of these mental illnesses from two factors, environmental and genetic, the authors also use animal models to test new treatments.

​Educational Psychology Forum: A Multilevel Discussion of Positive Strengths - From Test Development, Individual Differences to Social Interaction

​【Theme Introduction】

In recent years, in addition to focusing on the evaluation methods of positive strengths, researchers have also tried to explore the different aspects and levels of each strength, and have extended the focus from individual differences of positive strengths to interaction with others, groups and even society. Effect. Therefore, this special feature provides eight studies examining the measurement and impact of positive strengths at different levels and interactions.

Based on the "New Youth Strengths Scale", Guo Yunzhen, Chen Yunyu, Li Qitian, Liao Sihan, and Wu Xiangyi developed a simplified version of the scale and expanded the scale to cover senior elementary school, middle school and high school general students to examine differences in the strengths of adolescents by gender and grade. Wang Huiya and Zhan Yuzhen used "single-frame comics" as stimulus materials to explore gender differences in humor understanding and appreciation for different types of stimuli such as offensive and non-aggressive humor. Wu Chen'an, Ye Jiaqi, and Zhan Yuzhen compared the differences in personality traits and attitudes of the two above through the performance of creative problem-solving abilities of people who were afraid of being laughed at and those who were not afraid of being laughed at in cooperative and competitive situations, and discussed the effect of teamwork and competition on fear of being laughed at. The influence of the laugher's creative problem solving.

Liu Jiayu, Ye Jiaqi, and Zhan Yuzhen explored the lack of humor, emotion recognition, and perceived social interaction of people who are afraid of being laughed at. They watched pictures and videos through a single-person booth and a soundproof laboratory, not only for those who were afraid of being laughed. Facial stimulation, more objective tests of the abilities related to traits, and then to understand the performance of "people who are afraid of being laughed at" on interpersonal and social communication and interaction, so as to clarify the differences between this group and the general population. Cai Mengning, Zheng Yongjie, and Chen Xuezhi conducted a survey on domestic couples' humorous style and marital satisfaction, and explored the types of humorous combinations between husbands and wives at the husband and wife level, and compared the differences in marital satisfaction between different combinations. Learn about the association between the way couples use humor and marital satisfaction. Huang Shiyuan, Lin Pengxuan, Zhang Yulin, and Chen Xuezhi explored the impact of new residents and local children on cognitive, language, social, and emotional abilities, and understood the diversity of home learning environments, learning materials, learning stimuli, parental responses, and conditional discipline. The intermediary role played by various abilities.

Wu Ruan, Zhang Yulin, and Ye Mingfen discussed the effect of using different Point of View (POV) prompting strategies in the design thinking experience course to enhance learners' POV ideas, creative thinking, creative tendencies, and innovation of design works. Liao Yuxiu and Chen Xuezhi took Taiwan college students as the research objects and conducted a SEM model analysis to explore whether executive function affects subjective well-being through the mediation of perseverance, and provide an empirical study on the relationship between executive function, perseverance, and subjective well-being. Based on the above research, we hope to have a better understanding of how to apply positive dominance in the interpersonal interaction and teaching field.
