Tianqiao Chen and Chrissy Luo  fund studies into acceptance of death
    A billionaire couple,Tiaoqiao Chen and Chrissy Luo, who pioneered internet games in China are donating $115m to the California Institute of Technology for brain research in an effort to help humans accept mortality.

   The gift by this couple, founders of Shanda — which began life as an online games developer before transforming into an investment group with stakes in Lending Club and Legg Mason — underlines the increasingly prominent role played by mainland Chinese entrepreneurs in global philanthropy.

    In Tianqiao Chen’s opinion,understanding how the brain and mind worked would enable people to master emotions such as pain and fear.
    “Why can’t we accept death?” he said. “Because of fear, because of pain — all the negative perception.”
    The gift, which includes endowed funds, will create a neuroscience institute at Caltech named after the couple. They say it is intended for pure research, the direction of which will be decided by the university.
    This will include building a $200m biosciences facility at the university in Pasadena, California. Caltech is contributing resources to the project.

    Thomas Rosenbaum, Caltech president, said the university and the couple shared a vision of translating scientific insights into the brain into a “deeper understanding of how human beings perceive and interact with the world”.
    In addition,the couple plans to hire a chief scientist for Shanda Group to help direct future charitable giving and say the philanthropic support for brain research dovetails with an investment interest in technology that interfaces between computers and people.
    “Our philanthropy is to find out the secret of the brain, but our technology is to leverage our brain,” Mr Chen said.
    As a college who is interested in the study of brain,I will pay more attention to these studies.
