INSIGHT
Midterm elections: Emory experts weigh in on what's at stake Nov. 6
With debates over the midterm elections reaching a fever pitch, Emory faculty experts outline the key issues to watch in this year's historic races.

 

IMPACT
Emory Votes: University to provide shuttles to nearby polling places
On Election Day, Nov. 6, Emory encourages students, staff and faculty to exercise one of the most foundational rights of citizenship in our democracy: the right to vote.

 

CAMPUS
November arts events include dance, music, theater and more
With over 50 arts events scheduled at Emory in November, there is a lot to be thankful for this month. Highlights include multiple performances featuring Emory student dancers, actors and musicians.

 

RESEARCH
Study gives new insight into how the brain perceives places
A new study shows that the brain has two distinct systems for how it perceives our environment: one for recognizing a place and another for navigating through it. The work could have important implications for helping people to recover from brain injuries and for the design of computer vision systems, such as self-driving cars.

 

INNOVATION
Center for Neuro-dysfunction and Inflammation focuses on expanding field of neuroimmunology
Emory is forming a new center for the study of brain inflammation, a critical mechanism in several chronic diseases of the nervous system and neurodegenerative diseases.

COMMUNITY
Emory gathers to remember victims of synagogue shooting
With the flag on the Emory Quad flying at half-staff, the campus community came together Monday for a student-led gathering to remember the victims of the shooting at Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh. Learn about emotional support resources available at Emory.
