Stanford Center on Longevity founders, Director, Laura Carstensen and Deputy Director, Tom Rando, are among the 79 newly elected members -- elected by current active members through a selective process that recognizes individuals who have made major contributions to the advancement of the medical sciences, health care, and public health.

In a recent review paper published in Psychological Science in the Public Interest, seven researches contend that there is "little compelling evidence for real-world benefits of existing brain-training products."
