≪Organizer Abstract≫
Wired fraud criminals continue to run rampant in Japan. Both the number of victims of the criminal and the amount of money taken away by the fraudsters are increasing every year. But we know very little about what influences cognitive functions of the elderly people have on being deceived in the fraud. In this session we will have an occasion to talk about how their cognitive functions affect being deceived or not being deceived. Speakers of this session come from criminology, cognitive psychology and psychometrics and they have conducted various research on how seniors' cognition influences everyday decision makings and judgments in critical situations such as receiving phone calls from the fraudsters. We can conduct comprehensive discussions of this theme from the multiple points.
