Your paper should describe in your own words what the scientific article is about, why it is important, and how an understanding of cognitive science informs your interpretation of the article (draw upon topics discussed in class and/or covered in the course readings). Discuss any methodological shortcomings or limitations of the study. Do you think that the authors’ conclusions are valid? Do the findings constitute a major scientific breakthrough, and why? If the findings are controversial in any way, explain why. You must also evaluate whether the news article did an accurate job in its reporting on the scientific study. Was there anything misleading about the media coverage and/or the quotes made by scientists interviewed for the story? If you were the one writing the news article, what additional detail(s) about the study do you think would have been most helpful to convey to the public? And finally, comment on what kinds of follow-up studies you would like to see done to gain more insight into the issues at hand. When you turn in you paper, you must also include printed copies of both the scientific article and the news article (double-sided printing preferred; color not necessary). Late papers will be penalized by 10 percentage points per day late.
