New research appearing in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience journal shows procrastination may be related to genes.
近日发表在《社会认知与情感神经科学》期刊上的一项新研究显示,拖延症可能与基因有关。

Researchers from the University of Bochum in Germany focused on a single gene which creates an enzyme called tyrosine hydroxylase.
德国波鸿大学的研究人员专注于研究一种可产生酪氨酸羟化酶的基因。

This gene helps regulate the production of dopamine — a chemical messenger that plays a role in brain processes such as attention, memory and motivation. The presence of dopamine is different from person to person.
这种基因有助于调节多巴胺的产生,多巴胺是一种在注意力、记忆力和动机等脑活动中发挥作用的化学信使。多巴胺释放多寡因人而异。

Researchers say this affects "cognitive flexibility". This is related to whether people can multi-task. Those who cannot may be forced to make fewer decisions simultaneously.
研究人员称,这会影响"认知灵活性"。这种灵活性关系到人们能否同时完成多重任务。不能同时完成多重任务的人不得不在同一时间内少做决定。

This, in turn, makes some people procrastinate or appear lazy. In other words, when people appear lazy, it may not be their fault.
这就使得一些人做事拖沓或者看起来很懒。换句话说,当人们看起来很懒时,或许并非他们自己有错。

China's central bank reiterated on Monday it is confident in its ability to keep the yuan's exchange rate stable after both the onshore and offshore yuan broke seven against the US dollar.
5日,人民币对美元在岸、离岸价格双双"破7"。央行重申,人民币汇率完全能够在合理均衡水平上保持基本稳定。

The People's Bank of China attributed the weakening of the currency beyond 7 yuan per US dollar Monday to factors including unilateral and protectionist measures, as well as the expectation of additional tariffs on Chinese goods, according to an online statement.
中国人民银行在一份网络声明中表示,受单边主义和贸易保护主义措施及对中国加征关税预期等因素影响,5日人民币对美元汇率有所贬值,突破了7元。

In a statement released on Monday evening, PBOC Governor Yi Gang said he "is confident in the renminbi continuing to be a strong currency".
5日晚间,中国人民银行行长易纲发表声明称,他对人民币继续作为强势货币充满信心。

Yi said China will adhere to the principle of letting the market decide the yuan's exchange rate. "China will not make a competitive devaluation of the yuan, nor will it use exchange rates as means for competition or coping with trade disputes," he said.
易纲表示,中国会坚持市场决定的汇率制度,不搞竞争性贬值,不将汇率用于竞争性目的,也不会将汇率作为工具来应对贸易争端。
