Science Sundays: Ellen Peters, Decision making across the life span: What are good moods good for?

Reception following the lecture in the Ohio Union Ohio Staters Traditions Room (4-5 p.m.)

Ellen Peters, professor of psychology and director, Ohio State’s Decision Sciences Collaborative, lectures on “Decision making across the life span: What are good moods good for?”

How we process information in making decisions changes as we get older. We don’t think as hard as we get older, but having experience to rely on allows us to think better. And, good moods have a surprising power that can help older adults make better decisions.
