Description The general objective of our research project (supported by GACR, no. 13-19808S) is to analyze in more detail the variables involved in the process of health-related self-regulation, and to design models of health-enhancing and health-threatening behaviour which would be valid for the Czech population. This can be achieved by employing a cross-sectional research design using cohorts of adolescents, as well as different age groups of adults up to the old age. As a part of the project, an exploratory study will be conducted: it will focus on neuropsychological markers (e.g. biochemical activity, bioelectric reactivity, and connectivity of corresponding neuronal structures) at two contrasting groups with predominance of healthenhancing vs health-threatening behaviour. The outcomes will lead to a deeper understanding of the links between personality, health, health attitudes, cognitive styles, and health-related behaviour.
