The topic decided by all lab sections is the Nervous System & Special Senses. The paper must involve background information on the Nervous System for the intro and a major focus on diseases/disorders of the Nervous System for the body of the paragraph. Remember to select a minimum of TWO or THREE disorders so you can compare them at the conclusion of you paper.
You must have 6 sources for your annotated bibliography with a maximum of a paragraph summary for each source
Research Paper: There will be one research paper for this lab. The research paper will be based on one topic selected by your TA from one of the 10 labs and it will be given to you no later than the second week of class. The research paper is to be completed individually! You need to gather information from the library as early as possible. The research paper will be 5 pages long (Times New Roman, 10pts, double-spaced, ~2000 words). It should include a half page introduction, 3 pages forming the body of the paper and a half page conclusion. Finally, the last page will consist of a reference page that will include a minimum of 6 journal articles, and 1 citation from a book (do not use your lab manual, nor information from the Human Bio website). The paper cannot include ANY quotations. Students must submit an annotated bibliography by the start of class time the week of February 10th (Lab 4), and a rough draft of the paper BY the start of class time the week of February 24th (Lab 6). NOTE: Spelling and grammatical errors are penalized. Plagiarizing is not acceptable! Your TA will introduce you to it and how to avoid it in your papers this semester. Please take note of what your TA tells you because failure to do so will result in getting an “F” for the paper with serious considerations to dismissal from the course and possibly the university (see Plagiarism Policy below). Each TA is supplied with software that is sensitive to any level of Plagiarism and if you submit something that you have plagiarized the computer will find it. Do not copy anything directly from a web page. This is a serious offense and will be reported to the Dean. You CANNOT RE-SUBMITT a paper used for another class, including a previous semester of this class. To avoid plagiarizing you must cite every idea or piece of information that is not your own or “common knowledge.” You must write all information in your own words. Please be sure to talk to your TA if you are unsure whether you have plagiarized and how to cite references.
Absolutley no plagarizing.
