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.

Date: October 4th starting at 12:45pm

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

She will discuss results from her own studies that have used questionnaires, in person interviews, and brain imaging to learn more about differences among older adults in their empathic skills and willingness to help others.

Lisa T. Eyler, Ph.D. is an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at the University of California, San Diego and a faculty member in the Stein Institute for Research on Aging. She is also a Clinical Research Psychologist in the Veterans Administration Mental Illness Research, Education, and Clinical Center.
