If you missed SANS 2019 in Miami, talks are now publicly available. GR Samanez-Larkin shares a series of recent studies on motivation in the aging brain titled “Using social and affective neuroscience to resolve a persistent dualism in aging research”
Over Duke's 2018 Fall Break, five undergraduate neuroscience majors and three recent undergraduate alumni traveled to Philadelphia to attend the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroeconomics, an international meeting of scientists doing research on the neuroscience of decision making.
The conference is regularly attended by graduate students, postdocs, and faculty members from the Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, but this was the first year that a group of Duke undergraduates were in attendance.
Professor Samanez-Larkin addresses what we thought we knew, what we know now, and what we can do about protecting the financial well being and reducing the fraud susceptibility of aging investors. He further discusses the front-line neuroscience that is changing how we understand the issues facing senior investors at the Senior Investors Forum on Serving the Needs of Our Aging Investors in Chicago hosted by SIFMA.
