The Role of Updating of Valenced information in Emotion Regulation
2018
Research has shown that individuals with higher capacity in executive functions are better at regulating their emotions. However, not much is known specifically about the relationship between updating and reappraisal strategy of emotion regulation. The study aimed at examining how updating of emotional information is related to emotion regulation and how the influence of negative mood on updating is related to emotion regulation. Sixty-three participants randomly assigned into an experimental and control group took part in the study by performing an emotional 2-back task. All participants also filled out separately an emotion regulation, emotional state and emotional intelligence questionnaires. The results showed that the reappraisal strategy of emotion regulation and mean accuracy rate of updating were positively correlated. Negative mood significantly impaired updating of positive trials but this effect was not observed for the overall updating and negative trials. There was no significant correlation between mood impact on updating and emotion regulation.
