Discussed in religions and philosophies for millennia, wisdom is a topic of growing empirical research since the 1970s. Studies have shown a strong inverse association between wisdom and loneliness. This suggests the relevance of wisdom in the current era of behavioural pandemics of loneliness and associated suicides and opioid-related deaths. This webinar will examine future neurobiological procedures which may be developed to enhance components of wisdom and how wisdom, through its association with well-being, happiness, and health is perhaps the best means of achieving successful ageing.
