(please retain and use the 4 articles being referenced for intext and reference citations along with any of your own scholorly references)
The purpose of this assignment is to COMPLETE a paper that will:
The final paper should showcase your best work in synthesizing and applying information about the biological basis of behavior, as well as your writing skills. An example paper from a former student is available to provide a strong example of this assignment (see the attachment below).
Please complete the following this week:
YOU ARE ESSENTIALLY WRITING AN ABSTRACT, INTRODUCTION & CONCLUSION with filler information to make up the extra pages. There are 4 full page summaries already. SO you just need 2 more full pages including the abstract page.
>> Review attachments being with “Sem assignment one”<<
Step 1: Selecting a Research Paper Topic
1. The Topic: I’ve decided to write about Bell’s Palsy
Bells palsy is a type of facial paralysis the result of either trauma or damage to one or two of a persons facial nerves.
2. Summarize Symptoms:
· Rapid onset of mild weakness to total paralysis on one side of your face — occurring within hours to days
· Facial droop and difficulty making facial expressions, such as closing your eye or smiling
· Pain around the jaw or in or behind your ear on the affected side
· Increased sensitivity to sound on the affected side
· A loss of taste
· Changes in the amount of tears and saliva you produce
3. Nervous System Changes: Identify one or more nervous system changes. List key types of changes in nervous system associated with the disease or disorder.
The cause of Bell’s palsy is not known. It is thought that it may be due to inflammation that is directed by the body’s immune system against the nerve controlling movement of the face. This condition results from damage to the facial nerve (the 7th cranial nerve). Pain and discomfort usually occur on one side of the face or head. Symptoms are usually temporary but few may experience the effects for life.
