Sir. WafflelotDr. Carter established some new professional relationships during his trip to San Diego for the Society for Neuroscience annual conference. The entire SNaG lab is excited to work with Sir. Wafflelot in the future. Future research directions include, when and why do we choose to share the last bite of waffle? How do we define the diminishing marginal utility of syrup on breakfast items?
