Lecture: The Psychology & Neuroscience Of Compassion And Empathy In Later Life

In association with UCSD’s Stein Institute for Research on Aging, Dr. Eyler has been leading studies to understand more about how older adults perceive the feelings and needs of those around them and the factors that drive them to reach out and help others.

 

In this talk, she will review the growing psychological and neuroscientific literature on empathy and compassion, particularly as related to potential changes across adulthood.
