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.
