研究一首先在945人样本中修订了当前国外最新的测量死亡态度的多维量表(Death Attitude Profile-Revised, DAP-R（Wong，Reker & Gesser, 1994)，获得了良好的信效度：探索性因素分析五个因素分别解释方差24.98%、12.64%、10.07%、5.63%、5.43%（共计58.76%）；验证性因素分析CFI=0.95、NFI=0.90、NNFI=0.95、IFI=0.96、RMSEA=0.058、χ2/df=1.61；量表总分Cronbachα系数为0.84，分量表的内部一致性信度分别为0.80、0.79、0.80、0.79、0.82；四周重测信度为0.78、0.80、0.65、0.71、0.70。
在修订量表基础上，选择死亡恐惧维度得分最高、中间、最低各20%个体，采用加入中性-中性图片对的点探测研究范式(Koster et al, 2004)，考察高、中、低水平死亡焦虑个体对死亡信息图片的注意偏向(attentional bias)、注意朝向(orientation)和注意脱离(disengagement)困难。其中，注意偏向是指，当死亡-中性图片同时呈现时，被试对探测点出现在死亡图片位置上的反应时更短；注意朝向是指，相比于中性-中性图片对的反应时，当探测点出现在死亡-中性图片对死亡图片位置上时，被试的反应时更短；注意脱离困难是指，相比于中性-中性图片对的反应时，当探测点出现在死亡-中性图片对的中性图片位置时，被试的反应时更长。可以将注意朝向和注意脱离看作是注意偏向的两个成分。

After summarizing terror management theory (TMT), posttraumatic growth theory (PTG) and other clinical theory, an attentional and motivational model of death anxiety was put forward. This model explained how high level of death anxiety was formed and sustained from the perspective of attention regulation. And referring to research areas of attentional bias and anxiety, this research supposed that in short time course (175ms) high death anxiety subjects may be more oriented to death pictures and more difficult to disengage from death pictures in longer time course (500ms). These attentional indicators were significantly correlated with death anxiety and death avoidance.
First research revised Death Attitude Profile-Revised (DAP-R) in a sample of 945 people. Results showed that DAP-R had good reliability and validity. Exploratory factor analysis found five factors which explained 24.98%, 24.98%, 10.07%, 5.63%, 5.43% of variance, respectively (total 58.76%); Confirmatory factor analysis found CFI=0.95、NFI=0.90、NNFI=0.95、IFI=0.96、RMSEA=0.058、χ2/df=1.61; Whole scale’s Cronbach alpha coefficient is 0.84; internal consistency reliabilities of five subscales were 0.80, 0.79, 0.80, 0.79, 0.82, respectively; the retest reliabilities were 0.78, 0.80, 0.65, 0.71, and 0.70, respectively.
Based on the fear of death subscale scores of DAP-R, second and third researches chose groups of high, medium and low death anxiety people from upper and lower 20% scores and people in the middle. Using revised dot-probe task, these two researches examed attetional bias, attentional orientation and disengagement towards death pictures in death anxiety. Attentional bias means shorter reaction time when dot probe was presented at the position of death picture compared with the position of neutral picture. Attentional orientation means, compared with reaction time of neutral-neutral pictures, reaction time was shorter when dot-probe was presented at the position of death picture of death-neutral pictures. Attentional disengagement means, compared with reaction time of neutral-neutral pictures, reaction time was shorter when dot-probe was presented at the position of neutral picture of death-neutral pictures. The latter two indicators can be seen as two components of attentional bias.
In second study, there were 27, 22 and 26 people in the high, medium and low death anxiety group, respectively. Results showed that in general situation, when death and neutral pictures were presented at same time for 175ms，low death anxiety group was more biased for neutral pictures compared with the other two groups, while high death anxiety group had slight attentional bias for death pictures. Attentional orientation for death pictures in 175ms time course was significantly correlated with self-reported fear of death and death avoidance. In time course of 500ms neither attentional bias nor difficult to disengage from death pictures were found.
In third study, there were 39, 42 and 41 people in the high, medium and low death anxiety group, respectively. Results showed that in mortality salience condition, when pictures were presented for 175ms, high death anxiety group was more oriented towards death pictures; in time course of 500ms, high death anxiety group was more difficult to disengage from death pictures; both indicators were significantly correlated with self-reported death anxiety and avoidance. In time course of 500ms, high death anxiety group was more difficult to disengage from death pictures in mortality salience condition but not in control conditions.
Conclusion: compared with low and medium death anxiety subjects, in general situation, high death anxiety subjects had attentional bias for death information at shorter time course; and in mortality salience condition, high death anxiety subjects had attetional orientation for death information at shorter time-course and disengagement difficulty at longer time course.
