Your syntax is a bit off, in an arrow function, the opening brace should follow the "arrow" with nothing in between. It also looks like you have an unmatched extra closing parenthesis at the end of the statement.

And since the parameter(s) go in_front_ of the "arrow", this code is defining an anonymous function with a parameter named "res" instead of "response".
