Abstract Psychological resilience reflects the capacity to bounce back from stress, which plays an important role in health and well-being. However, less is known about the neural substrate for psychological resilience and the underlying mechanism for how psychological resilience enhances subjective well-being in the healthy brain. To investigate these issues, we employed fractional amplitude of low-frequency fluctuations (fALFF) measured with resting-state fMRI in 100 young healthy adults. The…

Sex-linked neurofunctional basis of psychological resilience in late adolescence: a resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging study
The results of this study might provide the first evidence of sex-specific neurofunctional substrates of psychological resilience in adolescents, emphasizing the vital role of sex effects in future psychological resilience-related studies.
Emotional intelligence mediates the protective role of the orbitofrontal cortex spontaneous activity measured by fALFF against depressive and anxious symptoms in late adolescence
As a stable personality construct, trait emotional intelligence (TEI) refers to a battery of perceived emotion-related skills that make individuals behave effectively to adapt to the environment and
Psychological Resilience Enhances the Orbitofrontal Network in the Elderly With Mild Cognitive Impairment
Psychological resilience may be associated with enhancement of the orbitofrontal network in the elderly with MCI.
Stress and the brain: Perceived stress mediates the impact of the superior frontal gyrus spontaneous activity on depressive symptoms in late adolescence
Estimating the fractional amplitude of low‐frequency fluctuations (fALFFs) via resting‐state functional magnetic resonance imaging suggested that the fALFF in the left SFG is a neurofunctional marker of perceived stress in adolescents and revealed a potential indirect effect of perceived Stress on the association between the SFG spontaneous activity and depressive symptoms.
Grey matter covariation and the role of emotion reappraisal in mental wellbeing and resilience after early life stress exposure
Resilience is a process of adaptive recovery crucial in maintaining mental wellbeing after stress exposure. A psychological factor known to buffer stress and promote positive wellbeing outcomes is
Intrinsic functional connectivity of blue and red brains: neurobiological evidence of different stress resilience between political attitudes
It is found that conservatives, compared to liberals and moderates, had greater psychological resilience and self-regulation capacity that were attributable to greater impulse control and causal reasoning.
Neurostructural correlates of hope: dispositional hope mediates the impact of the SMA gray matter volume on subjective well-being in late adolescence
Novel evidence is presented for the neuroanatomical basis of dispositional hope and an underlying indirect effect of disposeditional hope on the link between brain gray matter structure and subjective well-being is suggested.
Stressor Appraisal as an Explanation for the Influence of Extra-Individual Factors on Psychological Resilience
In this chapter, the authors show how studying stressor appraisal and resulting adaptive coping potentially provides a parsimonious explanation of psychological resilience. Extra-individual factors


Brain regions involved in dispositional mindfulness during resting state and their relation with well-being
This study provides the first evidence for linking individual differences in dispositional mindful to spontaneous brain activity and demonstrates that dispositional mindfulness engages multiple brain mechanisms that differentially influence hedonic and eudaimonic well-being.
Significant grey matter changes in a region of the orbitofrontal cortex in healthy participants predicts emotional dysregulation.
The traditional concept of 'categorical' psychiatric disorders has been challenged as many of the symptoms display a continuous distribution in the general population. We suggest that this is the
