Fall Lab Outing to Spookyworld

There are many fall traditions enjoyed by New Englanders - apple picking, leaf peeping, turkey frying....and visits to Spookyworld. One might think that, as reasoning adults, a trip for the lab to a seasonal horror themepark would not be too frightening. Turns out: still pretty Spooky! Our amygdalae definitely work. Plus we now know how our mice feel when we expose them to predator odors.

This bizarre creature kept following us. Definitely Spooky.
Fine, we did Jello shots. I thought this was pretty Spooky,
but the rest of the lab thought it was normal.
