“Brain, Mind, and Behavior” Homework Assignment #1 Must be turned in to your Discussion Section GSI during the week of February 1-5, 2010 Neuroscience is a very active field of research and issues dealing with the brain and how it relates to mind and behavior frequently appear in the major news media. Every week there will be articles in major newspapers and magazines, stories on television and radio news, and reports on news-media websites concerning topics in contemporary neuroscience. Your assignment is to find a news report, appearing within the past 3 months, about a topic in neuroscience, brain research, biological psychology, or whatever we wish to call these areas of study. The report should be from a news-media publication, not from a scientific journal.

Unformatted text preview: Then, IN YOUR OWN WORDS, write a summary description (less than a page, but more than a half-page, typed single-spaced) of the news item, including a COMPLETE REFERENCE to where the news item may be found. Your summary description should convey the essence of what the news report is about and why you find it interesting. If there are parts of the report that are not clear to you, indicate what these are. We repeat, it is important that your description of the article be IN YOUR OWN WORDS. You should not simply copy material from the text of the article. Put your name, SID number, and discussion-section day and time on your assignment. Turn in your homework to your GSI as a paper copy. Emailed assignments will not be accepted. Enjoy!...
