Emma’s Discoveries

After a decade in the lab, I have a lot of cool findings to share. And since it can take a lifetime to get it all published in peer-reviewed academic journals, I’m doing my best to let it this research see the light of day by posting it here.

From the experiments I conducted, females seem to be more strongly affected by dopamine and noradrenaline manipulations, while malesContinue reading “Gordon Research Conference”
