Topic: How will I feel when I die? Insights from social psychology
In this talk, our speaker will examine a question we all face: what will dying be like? Using data from terminally ill cancer patients and death row inmates, our speaker argues that perhaps death will not be as daunting as we anticipate. 

About the speaker: 
Amelia Goranson is a graduate student working with Dr. Kurt Gray in the Department of Psychology & Neuroscience at UNC Chapel Hill. She studies morality and the way that we perceive the minds of others. Specifically, she's interested in how our moral perceptions influence our thoughts about and interactions with others, perceptions of death, and how moral typecasting can make people healthier and happier. 

Unless otherwise specified, Teen Science Cafe occurs on-site at Morehead Planetarium.
