One of the coolest things about attending a research university is participating in studies yourself. I’ve done my fair share of psychology research both as a research assistant and participant but this time around I got to utilize my taste buds for the Food Science & Technology Department.
It was my first time at the new Robert Mondavi Institute. The study was in the sensory building over by the water tower.
I was quite excited about this study because I loved the acai gelato I had at Icekrimsi next to Varsity Theater and the acai Jamba I had during their $1 promotion. Plus, instead of being compensated with experimetrix units I would receive a $10 gift card!
