If you pop mint gum between meals to help keep your eating in check, that habit could be backfiring, finds new research published in the journal Eating Behaviors.
Our lab offers many hands-on opportunities for students. Research assistants are involved in all aspects of recruitment, data collection, data entry and manuscript preparation.
