I'm working on a psychology writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
your main post should have at least 200 words or more and include a citation of at least one scholarly source. You should respond to at least two classmate's posting by 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, with at least 75 words or more. Please include the word count at the end of each post.
Step 1: Visit the Public Library of Science (PLOS One) website: http://journals.plos.org/plosone/browse/psychology (a peer-reviewed journal that freely publishes research articles with open licenses). Do a search for an article that interests you, then answer the following:
- What is the hyperlink to the study you chose?
- What is the title of the study, and who conducted the research?
- Describe the study in a few sentences in your own words.
- Identify and describe either the basic assumption of the researchers, or if it was an experiment, the hypothesis. Why were they conducting this research?
- How was the study performed? What methods were used?
- What were the results and conclusions of this study?
- What questions do you still have after reading about this study? For example, if you were to conduct another study based off of this study, what questions would you ask and what would you still want to find out?
Respond to at least TWO other posts in responses in a paragraph with at least 75 words. Your comments should facilitate a discussion and can highlight your own thoughts about the study. Please include the word count at the end of each post
Using Your Brain
your main post should have at least 150 words or more and include a citation of at least one scholarly source. You should respond to at least two classmate's posting by 11:59 pm CST on Sunday, with at least 75 words or more. Please include the word count at the end of each post.
Step 1: Write a discussion post of at least 150 words based on the following prompt (answer both questions):
- Think of an activity you did today. Using what you learned in this module, describe at least five different parts of your brain and how they were involved in that activity.
- If you were a psychologist or neuroscientist interested in learning more about one of those brain parts, what methods could you use to learn more about the brain? (Consider types of studies you could create, experiments you could design, brain-imaging techniques, and other methods described in your reading)
Step 2: In a productive post that facilitates discussion, comment on at least TWO other posts with at least 75 words each. Add your own thoughts about the parts of the brain and methods used to study it.
