Abstract: Resilience refers to the phenomenon that a person has the achievement of positive adaptation after going through significant adversity or trauma. An accumulating literatures indicated positive emotionality, emotion regulation were of great importance in the studies of resilience; insula and prefrontal cortex (vmPFC and OFC) of high-resilient individuals were activated under the condition of stress; variation in 5HTTLPR in amygdale was observed to be strongly related to resilience. Based on the research findings above, dual-process models of resilience and emotion flexibility hypothesis can be proposed. Studies in the future should shed light on the effects of the role of emotional memory and personality traits in resilience.

Key words: resilience, positive emotion, emotion regulation, dual-process model, emotional flexibility
