At the conference, some groundbreaking results in physiology and the neurobiological basis of emotions were presented by a team of nobel Laureates . It eventually turns out that shorter telomeres tend to correlate with a long list of clinical psychological diseases and biological ones.
In this occasion [2013 ISRE society Conference], I also have witnessed Dr. W. Gerrod Parrott, Professor of Psychology, Georgetown University, passing the baton of ISRE presidency to Arvid Kappas, Professor of Psychology at Jacobs University. and finally, I had the great pleasure to meet Prof. Dr. George Lakoff and Prof. Dr. Paul Ekman and engage with them in academic and methodological discussions.
