Ying Ge, Jinfu Zhang and Yuanyan Hu

For the purpose for exploring the differences in implicit preferences in facial expression recognition between urban internet-addicted left-behind children and urban left-behind children with no such addiction, variant GO/NO-GO (GNAT) paradigm of implicit association test (IAT) and a single-factor 2 level experimental design were adopted to test sixty participants (14 years of age) who were selected from two junior middle schools in Chongqing, China. This study results showed that compared with urban non-addicted left-behind children, urban Internet-addicted left-behind children gave more preference to negative emotion and poorer evaluation on their egos.
