Mr. Wang Jianxin’s Paper Published in PNAS

In January 2017, Proceedings of The National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) published Impulsive Control Acquisition: Based on Adult Alcohol Intolerance Groups Experimental Study "(An experimental Analysis of Acquired Impulse Control among Adult Humans Intolerant to Alcohol, a paper of Professor Rao Yulei’s research team (first author: Mr. Wang Jianxin; second author: Ms. Rao Yulei; corresponding author: Mr. Daniel Houser). Known for the world’s three top journals with Nature and Science, PNAS is mainly reviewed by the academicians of The National Academy of Sciences and whose impact factor maintains between 9.5-10.0 over the last five years.

According to Altmetric, the impact of this Paper reaches top 3% of included 7,219,034 papers, and top 11% of 42,984 papers published in PNAS.

Mr. Wang Jianxin, a doctor of our Business School, has worked in the School after graduation and his project has been supported by the National Natural Science Foundation of Young Scholar Project Funding in 2013. Thanks to CSU’s “2+6”Talent Program, Mr. Wang and other young teachers can concentrate on their scientific research work. Research interest, great efforts, rigorous scientific research attitude and favourable academic atmosphere of the team all contribute to Mr. Wang’s success.

The Paper makes a groundbreaking study on whether adults can acquire self-control in the natural environment. In the Southeast Asian, about one-third of the people are not tolerant of and more susceptible to alcohol (blush after drinking, allergies and other reactions), because of their lack of enzymes for alcohol decomposition. In Chinese alcoholic drink culture (especially for males), drinking brings pressure in socialization. Then whether adult alcohol intolerance groups pay more attention to self-control of alcohol in the social life? Psychologists Muraven and Baumeister put forward the famous “self-control strength model”, but there has been no convincing evidence to support the model.

The research team recruited 477 undergraduates of CSU as subjects. The study found that alcohol intolerant men were significantly stronger than alcohol tolerant men in the control of drinking and “selfish” impulse (which was not seen among females), which demonstrated that long-term regular self-control in daily life contributes to self-control ability.
