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.

 

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.

 

EVENTS
Jews and human rights to be focus of 10th annual Rothschild Lecture
Jewish historian James Loeffler, author of "Rooted Cosmopolitans: Jews and Human Rights in the Twentieth Century," will deliver the 10th Annual Rothschild Lecture at Emory on Nov. 15.
