Neil Charness, Ph.D., Director of the Institute for Successful Longevity, and Walter Boot, Ph.D., a Faculty Affiliate of the institute, will be in Bordeaux, France, in late September to meet with other researchers in a workshop on their CREATE project, which focuses on designing technology for older adults.
Damaris Aschwanden, Ph.D., gave a fascinating talk on “Who We Are Shapes How We Cognitively Age? Personality & Cognitive Health in Late Life” in the first presentation in the ISL Brown Bag Series for Fall 2021.

A research center led by Eren Erman Ozguven, Associate Professor in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and a Faculty Affiliate of the Institute for Successful Longevity, is among three institutes featured in a new Florida State University initiative designed to amplify centers and institutes that are doing high-profile, public-impact research and connect them with donors interested in pursuing big questions.
Dr. Norman B. (Brad) Schmidt, Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Psychology, has joined the Institute for Successful Longevity as a Faculty Affiliate.
Professor Angelina Sutin of FSU’s College of Medicine is quoted in a Time article on steps older adults can take to maintain their cognitive abilities. Sutin, a Faculty Affiliate of the Institute for Successful Longevity, tells Time of the dangers of social isolation and how hearing loss, common among older adults, can magnify the problem.
Eren Erman Ozguven, Ph.D., Associate Professor in the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering and a Faculty Affiliate of the Institute for Successful Longevity, is quoted by the Palm Beach Post in an article looking at whether new residents of Florida understand what they need to do to prepare for hurricane season:
Neil Charness, Director of the Institute for Successful Longevity, is quoted in an article in MarketWatch about the need to be skeptical of many “longevity” products and how to separate valid data from outlandish claims.
Charness advised MarketWatch readers to look for well-designed studies that include participants randomly assigned to both the experiment group and a control group.
Conventional wisdom has it that older adults can’t figure out digital technology. Bo Xie, an expert on technology and older adults at the University of Texas at Austin, is having none of that.
