Project #106606 - Physiological Psychology

 

Have you written an APA paper before? This paper is a hybrid. Unlike APA research papers, in this assignment, the first line of your paper should be the title of your paper, your name, and ID number. No cover page or abstract.
Please see this site for help on formatting references and citations in APA:

 Paper Topic in Neuroscience: Agnosia

Choose an appropriate agnosia from the list here: abulia, acataphaisa, acoria, adiadochokinesia, alexia, allesthesia, amelodia, amusia, analgesia, anomia, anosognosia, aphemia, apraxia, aprosodia, asemia, astereognosia, asynergia, ataxia, dysantigraphia, dyscalcula, dyschiria, dyschronation, dysmimia, environmental agnosia, prosopagnosia, synesthesia, topagnosis, topographagnosia, verbal dysdecorum (or you may choose another topic if you clear it with your instructor).

There are many types of agnosias. A lot of what we know about brain functioning comes from studies of deficits, and agnosias are very specific perceptual and functional deficits. Your task is to locate at least 3 references for the agnosia you choose. It is important to be sure you have enough information to complete your assignment. References should come from journal articles or books, and should be included at the end of your paper in APA format. Additional references can come from any trusted source. See a librarian for help.

Note: I AM WILLING TO CONSIDER EXTRA POINTS FOR EXCELLENT PAPERS. You will be graded on how complete and clear your sections are (see numbered section headings below).

Note on plagiarism: plagiarism detection will be used for this assignment. There are 2 key ways to avoid plagiarism. 1. Cite any idea you take from some other source. 2. Paraphrase everything you cite. Do not use quotes. Quoting material does not demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the material.

In your paper, include the following section headings: (below each heading there is a description of what this section should include)

1. Symptoms
Describe an individual with the specific deficits associated with this agnosia. How do they perceive the world? How is their life affected by this agnosia? Be specific, focusing on how someone with the agnosia functions. Include your research on cases of this agnosia.

2. Associated brain areas
Clearly describe the brain areas associated with the agnosia, and how this was discovered. Include your research on these areas of the brain: what have researchers found out about the function of these areas?

3. Lessons
What does this agnosia teach us about brain functioning, consciousness, and how the brain helps us to interpret the world?
