Durian and rosewater

24 06 2014

A slight screw up in planning Laura‘s project on the social transmission of food preferences: the mice aren’t allowed to smell on human breath any  flavour that we might use … …  and that’s any time since they arrived in the lab last December!  This means avoiding any food or drink that I, Laura, Mike, Carole and Maka (who’s from Georgia and cooks exotically), or even the weekend CAF staff, have eaten in the last seven months — so ruling out coffee, chocolate, cinnamon, cumin, peppermint and many of the usual suspects. Ooops.

Durian and rosewater are now top of the list, along with cat food.
