Below are some example topics you could investigate. Feel free to pick any of these topics, or come up with your own topic, as long as it somehow relates to both psychology and the brain:The brains of Deaf sign language users differ from spoken language users. Blindsight: ‘seeing’ without conscious vision.Are there differences in the brain based on biological sex? Learning new skills changes the structure of the brain.How does the brain recognize faces? What happens in the brain when we sleep?Once you have identified a topic, do the following:1. Write a summary of your topic (approximately one page is fine; it can also be longer). Find at least TWO OUTSIDE SOURCES (other than our textbook). You can use academic peer-reviewed journal articles, books, newspaper articles, films, academic websites (WIKIPEDIA DOES NOT COUNT FOR THIS ASSIGNMENT). The most credible websites are based on research findings and often end in .edu or .org. The best method for you for finding peer-reviewed journal articles is to use the library search tools such as Academic Search Complete. If you search for a particular key term (e.g. marijuana), you will usually get a list of journal article abstracts, often with direct links to the actual articles. Peer-reviewed articles typically contain subsections such as an abstract, introduction, methods, results and discussion. Sometimes they are ‘review articles’ that review many studies (rather than report the results of an original experiment) and may not include all of these subsections, but you can still recognize them in the library search since they are labeled as an ‘Academic journal’ (rather than ‘Periodical’ which are not peer-reviewed). 2. Post the summary on Canvas as a discussion post in the REPLY box below (by Sat Feb 4th midnight). List your sources in APA style at the end of your summary. (10 points)3. Read other students’ summaries, and reply to one of them (by Mon Feb 6th midnight). You can ask questions, comment on their information, tell about your knowledge related to their topic, etc. (5 points)IMPORTANT:Your summary must be IN YOUR OWN WORDS. Every time you use the words and/or ideas of an outside source, you must appropriately cite that source in APA style IN THE TEXT. YOU MUST ALWAYS INDICATE IN THE TEXT WHERE YOU GOT THE INFORMATION EVEN IF YOU WRITE IT IN YOUR OWN WORDS. (PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE DIRECT QUOTATIONS IN YOUR SUMMARY EXCEPT IN UNUSUAL CIRCUMSTANCES; IT’S ALWAYS BETTER TO WRITE IN YOUR OWN WORDS). Please provide a list of the references at the end of the assignment in APA style (see the APA style guide link posted on the website. Choose the correct way to list the reference based on the source you are using, e.g. journal article).When you cite a source in the text of your summary, use the name of the author(s) and publication year in parentheses. Here’s how:Cocaine is a strong central nervous system stimulant (Smith, 2010). Alcohol, on the other hand, is a strong depressant (Zhang & Jones, 2001).Or: According to Smith (2010), cocaine is a strong central nervous system stimulant. In contrast, Zhang & Jones (2001) discuss the effects of a strong depressant, alcohol, on the central nervous system.If there is no author (which may sometimes happen with websites), use the the first few words of the reference list entry (usually the title). Use double quotation marks. See these examples:For citations with no author (USING APA is the title of a website):A similar study was done of students learning to format research papers (‘Using APA,’ 2001).No author & no date (TUTORING AND APA is the title of a website, and there is no date given):In another study of students and research decisions, it was discovered that students succeeded with tutoring (‘Tutoring and APA,’ n.d.). n.d. = no date
