INNOVATION

RESEARCH
Mouse study suggests how hearing a warning sound turns into fearing it over time
Emory researchers have identified a new mechanism that contributes to learning an association between an auditory warning and a fearful event. The findings could aid research into how to help combat veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder.

 

HEALTH
Emory develops national database of clinics that prescribe HIV prevention drug PrEP
The online PrEP Locator makes it easier to find and access pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP), a drug that has proven extremely effective in preventing the spread of the HIV virus.
