BIOL1131 Neuroscience : Peer-Reviewed Biomedical Science Articles

Task:

Neuroscience is a field that is constantly changing – every year researchers and medical experts discover new findings about neurological disease that helps discover how diseases occur and what can be done to help patients. In this assignment you will select a neurological disorder from the list provided, research about the disorder (using authoritative sources), and write a structured essay. 
1. Choose the disorder that you will discuss for your essay from the list provided. 
The topics options for the assignment are listed below. Once you have decided which topic you wish to pursue please join the group in People on Canvas for that topic. Once you open the ‘Groups’ section you will see a number of groups, one for each topic. To select a topic, simple assign yourself to that group. Please note that there are a limited number of students who can select each topic – once a ‘Group’ is full, no other students can select that topic. Any students who have not selected a topic on Canvas by Friday of Week 5 will be allocated a topic by the course coordinator. All allocations will be final. While you can discuss the topic with other people in your group, this is an individual assignment and will be assessed accordingly. 
1. Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) 2. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) 3. Bipolar disorder 4. Narcolepsy 5. Autism Spectrum Disorder 6. Chronic Whiplash Associated Disorder 
• For your chosen disorder you will need to research the cause and incidence, pathology that occurs to the nervous system, and the neuroanatomical pathways involved that produces the symptoms of the disease. • In addition, you should include information on TWO recent (in the last 5 years; 2017 to now) research studies on the topic – these can involve humans or preclinical models (cells/mice/rats). Briefly discuss the research findings and state why each study is important in the overall field of research of this disorder 
2. Research your disorder using authoritative sources. Examples of authoritative sources include: • Peer-reviewed articles published in scientific journals. You can search for peer-reviewed biomedical science articles via Pub Med or Google Scholar • Textbooks authored by experts in the field 
3. After completing your research, write a short essay about your chosen disorders. Your essay must incorporate the following: • An introduction that outlines the content of your essay
• A brief overview that introduces the disorder that you have chosen. This can include information about incidence, patient profile (e.g. age), suggested cause.
• A description of pathology observed in this disorder
• A detailed explanation of how this pathology is believed to produce the symptoms observed
• A summary of two recent research studies on the topic. Briefly discuss the research findings and state why each study is important in the overall field of research of this disorder.
• A conclusion that summarises the key points of your essay.
