The effects of mood on the structure of the self-concept
This experiment explored the influence of mood on the organization of both the self-concept and information about a known other. The implications of this modeling procedure
for investigating self-concept structure and the effects of mood on cognitive organization in general are discussed.

Structural dynamism in the concept of self: A flexible model for a malleable concept
In the present article, the authors suggest a new model of the self-concept that incorporates recent advances in knowledge regarding conceptual structure. The authors envision the self as a representation in working memory with inherently flexible content and organization. Initial empirical evidence supporting this view is reviewed and followed by a discussion of the implications of this model for many phenomena involving the self-concept.

Shaping perceptions to motivate healthy behavior: The role of message framing
Health-relevant communications can be framed in terms of benefits (gains) or costs (losses) associated with a particular behavior, and the framing of such persuasive messages influences health decision making. The authors discuss the cognitive and affective processes that may mediate the influence of framed information on judgment and behavior.
