Student position

The Faculty Senate is seeking a student to serve as a student representative.

The Faculty Senate meets on the first Monday of each month to consider issues that affect faculty, students and employees, and to set policy and make recommendations for the benefit of the university.

Applications are available at ASUA and are due today at 5 p.m. For more information, call 621-2782.

Brain imaging

Those who study the human brain soon will be able to learn several different techniques used in imaging the brain from a CD-ROM.

Alejandro Terrazas, a doctoral student in the UA Psychology Department, is combining his expertise in neuroimaging and software development to produce the tutorial software, "Brain Scan, the Interactive Tutorial."

Terrazas just signed an agreement with Academic Press, a division of Harcourt Brace & Co., to develop the program, which is expected to be on the market by September 1996.

The UA Student Showcase Research Expo awarded him first-place for a prototype of the program last November, and the Arizona Imaging and Microanalysis Society awarded him the top prize for student presenters at its meeting in Tucson last March.

Jewish perspectives

The UA Judaic Studies Committee is sponsoring a new public forum, "Jewish Perspectives on Current Events," today at 8 p.m.

The forum will be conducted at the Judaic Studies offices in the Geronimoz Center, which is located on East University Boulevard just east of Euclid.

This is the first of three discussions that will take place on the first Monday of each month.

The discussions will be led by Professor Matt Goldish of the Department of History and the Judaic Studies program. Today's topic will be "From Jerusalem to Oklahoma City and from Jonestown to Waco: The Role of Apocalyptic Thought in Today's World."

The forum is free and open to the public as well as to members of the university community.

For more information, call 621-9114.
