MILESTONE
Ancient art collection comes to Emory
The Michael C. Carlos Museum has received a centennial gift from the Georges Ricard Foundation of the Senusret Collection, one of the most extensive single collections of ancient Egyptian and Near Eastern objects to be gifted to a U.S. museum.

 

INSIGHT
Gender gap in spatial reasoning starts in elementary school, meta-analysis finds
It is well-established that, on average, men outperform women on a spatial reasoning task known as mental rotation — imagining multi-dimensional objects from different points of view. Men are not, however, born with this advantage, suggests a major meta-analysis by Emory psychologists.

 

IMPACT
'Your Fantastic Mind' delves into sleep apnea, unexpected stroke and Alzheimer's
Days after writer Jerry Grillo had an MRI for a story about the aging brain, he suffered a cerebellar stroke. In the new episode of "Your Fantastic Mind," delve into Grillo's story, new treatments for sleep apnea, and a personal tale of love, loss, baseball and Alzheimer's.

 

SUSTAINABILITY
Emory community makes progress on 'zero landfill waste' goal
Thanks to participation from students, faculty and staff, Emory made significant progress last year towards the goal of diverting 95 percent of campus waste from municipal landfills by 2025.
