The first seminar of the semester began with a distinguished seminar, a seminar was taken together between Cognitive Neuroscience students and Biomedical Engineering students from the Department of Health Science and Technology of NCU.

Our speaker was Prof. Shu-Chen Li who is the Chair of Lifespan Developmental Neuroscience at Dresden University of Technology, Germany. Her research interests focus on the interactions between neuromodulatory and contextual influences on cognitive and motivational developmental across lifespan. By utilizing an integrated array of conceptual tools and empirical paradigm, she published many studies, ranging from the theory development over genetically informed behavioral which is combined with EEG and brain imaging to investigate the developmental and individual differences in brain-behavior relations across the lifespan.

One of the topics which was presented was Biocultural Co-construction of Lifespan Development in Old Age. The topic reviewed the effect of social-cultural influences on human brain functioning in old age in which recent individual brain get personalized through lifespan development which takes place in socio-cultural context. Prof. Li started her lecture by sharing about the global aging population and how it differs between developed and to-be-developed countries. Later, she talked about the decline of cognitive performances in many cognitive tasks because of aging and a model about how cognitive ability can be maintained and preserved through ages.

At the end of the seminar, Prof. Li addressed her great vision to create a global network which can bridge not only data and information but also expertise so that the disadvantage of aging in human can be helped by an appropriate technology which can cover the gap. Prof Li also welcomed students if they were interested in studying in Dresden, Germany since the campus is one prominent research institute in Europe.
