|Title||The Role of Cortisol in Positive Psychological Conditions, Dr. Lai’s brilliant and insightful research work|
|Description||The work of Dr. Lai and his associates has illustrated that maintaining a positive psychological profile such as being optimistic, humorous, and socially connected contributes to a cortisol profile associated with better health. This provides a physiological explanation of the well-documented associations between positive psychological constructs and better health in the literature. Dr. Lai has recently extended his research on cortisol into biological aging to explore the question of whether seniors with a healthier cortisol profile will be biological younger. Studies looking at the relationships between social embeddedness, cortisol and telomere length in the elderly will be underway soon.|
Dr Lai’s research papers have exemplified his scientific understanding and his in-depth research skills. His work has set a precedent for the younger generation to carry forward his work and discover more insightful findings.
