Your assignment is to write a paper regarding any subject pertaining to physiology. You can write about vitamin supplements, how multiple sclerosis affects the body, a blood disorder, or just about anything as long as it relates to human physiology. I would like my topic to be schizophrenia and how it affects a person’s life and brain. (If you can’t find anything about the topic I want, then anything involving with any mental illness would be fine) You need five journal articles plus three additional sources for your paper. Figure out the five primary journal articles + the three additional sources (Mayo Clinic, National Institutes of Health, or a textbook) that you are going to use for your paper. You MUST use all eight articles in your paper.
Physiology Paper Guidelines: 1. The paper must be four pages in length, written in APA format, and in the first paragraph, you need to talk about why you chose your specific topic. 2. You must use five sources from scientific peer-reviewed journals (ie. American Journal of Nursing, Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, American Journal of Medical Science) and three other valid sources (magazines, newspapers, and Wikipedia are not valid sources to use) in your paper.
Format of paper: You cannot use direct quotes or written material from literature. You must write everything in your own words and cite where it came from. To get an idea of how to cite other people’s work in your paper look at the scientific journal articles you have picked to use for your paper. Typically, you state the ideas from the paper in your own words and you put the authors name behind the quote and the date in parentheses (not the page number).
An example of how to cite research in your paper: Two distinct muscle fiber types are found within the myotomal muscle in most shark species: fast glycolytic, white muscle (WM) fibers and slow oxidative, or red, muscle (RM) fibers (Bone 1988). There is a distinct division of labor between these two fiber types, which can be distinguished based on mitochondrial density, vascularization, and metabolic enzyme activities (Johnston 1981; Bone 1988; Curtin and Woledge 1993a, 1993b, 1996).
You must have a literature-cited page at the end of the paper that lists all of the literature you used in the paper. You should put the authors names in alphabetical order with the date of the publication in parentheses, then the title of the paper or book and the volume and the article page numbers. An example of a Literature Cited Page: Attwood, P. V., and Geeves, M. A. (2002). Changes in catalytic activity and association state of pyruvate carboxylase which are dependent on enzyme concentration. Arch. Biochem. Biophys. 401, 63-72.
