Allan Levey is the inaugural holder of the Betty Gage Holland Chair in Neurology in the medical school at Emory. The Jim Cox Jr. Foundation established the chair. Holland, who died in 2004, was married to Cox, who presided over Cox Enterprises until his death in 1974. Cox's nephew, James Kennedy, and his wife, Sarah, recently gave $5 million to Emory for Alzheimer's research. Levey directs the Emory Alzheimer's Disease Research Center and chairs neurology. Read more about the Holland Chair and about the Kennedy donation.

Psychologist Ben Hampstead is working with Allan Levey, chair of neurology, on an NIH-funded grant to identify the memory systems involved in spatial navigation in Alzheimer's disease patients. The study uses functional magnetic resonance imaging to examine activity in the hippocampus.
