7. Perspective Taking with Elizabeth Johnson of the Wharton Neuroscience Initiative

EdUp Explained with Ashanti Martin

In this episode, we dive into the neuroscience of perspective taking -- sort of like empathy, but not quite. I spoke with Zab Johnson of the Wharton School about how intentional perspective taking can lead to more innovative and more successful teams, and how you can tap into the neuroscience yourself with some easy exercises. Elizabeth (Zab) Johnson is the executive director and senior fellow of the Wharton Neuroscience Initiative. Her research focuses on vision and visual behavior, spanning physiological approaches in the retina and early visual cortex to using eye tracking to investigate how human observers look, how these processes unfold over time and with experience, and the role of visually-guided social cognition and decision-making. As an expert on color vision, she has collaborated with Lenovo to develop computer and tablet screens with features that provide a more personalized color experience. Before coming to Penn in 2016, she spent 14 years at Duke University, where she was on the faculty in the Neurobiology Department and served as the Associate Director of the Duke Institute for Brain Sciences. Zab has a long-time interest in how our perception of visual art informs how we see.

Justice for the Oceans | Dr Ayana Elizabeth Johnson & Prof Emma Johnston

UNSW Centre for Ideas

How can we make a Blue New Deal? Healthy oceans are fundamental to a healthy planet. From phytoplankton, the tiny ocean plants that produce the oxygen we breathe, to the rich diversity of other ocean plants and creatures, we depend on our oceans to survive and thrive. But our oceans are both under threat and pose a threat. Pollution, overfishing and the destruction of coral reefs are killing them from within, while the impacts of climate change – rising sea levels and storm surges – are transforming the ocean from friend to foe for the many millions who live on the coast. Globally-renowned ocean defender Dr Ayana Elizabeth Johnson is clear: saving the oceans is key to fighting the climate crisis. Join us for a conversation between Ayana Elizabeth Johnson and leading Australian marine scientist Emma Johnston. They will explore how these issues are playing out in Australia and internationally, the future of the oceans in the age of climate change, how to mobilise support for a Blue New Deal and how women leaders are pioneering global climate action. This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and UNSW Science, and the Powerhouse Museum for the 2021 Sydney Science Festival. Supported by Inspiring Australia as a part of National Science Week.

A conversation about aging with Elizabeth Johnson

Catching Health with Diane Atwood

My guest in this episode of the Catching Health podcast has put me to shame! From the moment she wakes up and wiggles her toes until she slides under her blankets at night, Liz Johnson is on the move. She might be dancing or she might be pulling weeds, but even if she's lounging (I'm not convinced she ever does), her brain certainly isn't. She takes classes, plays bridge, none of which she can do in person right now because of the pandemic. That hasn't slowed her down a bit. She just fires up her computer, clicks on a Zoom invitation, and off she goes. Join us for a conversation about aging that will inspire you to be more active.
