Research Paper
  • General:
    • 8-10 double-spaced pages
    • Topic needs to be approved by me
      • Suitable topics are anything in the area of cellular and molecular neuroscience
      • Topic approval is required by Fri March 4
        • Approval requires:
          • a topic “title”
          • 2 articles that you will be using to write your paper
    • Paper is due on the last class day of class
      • topic is open but must be approved by first class date in March
        • approval requires submission of two papers relevant to the topic
research paper1
Research Paper
  • Format:
    • No particular format is required
      • Main text and reference section required
      • APA is suitable but not required
      • In general your paper should be …
        • Double spaced, not too long or short
        • Clearly written and organized
          • Headings can be helpful
        • Properly referenced
          • Citations can be any format but should be clear both in the text and the reference section
research paper2
Research Paper
  • Topic:
    • Anything relating to cellular or molecular aspects of nervous system function
      • Basic or applied topics are suitable
      • Examples
        • The dormant basket cell hypothesis of temporal lobe epilepsy
        • The role of Schwann cells in peripheral nerve regeneration
        • Dopamine receptor subtypes
        • Gene expression in long-term habituation
        • Molecular mechanisms of ecstasy neurotoxicity
        • The genetics of familial Alzheimer’s Disease
        • Neurofilaments and ALS
        • Special delivery mechanisms: Getting drugs into the CNS
research paper3
Research Paper
  • Topic:
    • Content:
      • Should be a brief review
      • Focus should be on clearly outlining and integrating a small body of cellular and molecular neuroscience research
      • Organization should be around a flow of ideas
        • The best papers will present an argument that is built around a series of empirical observations
        • The best papers will critically analyze the argument and observations, pointing out assumptions, shortcomings, future directions
      • Avoid
        • being too broad
        • extensive reviews of clinical data
        • simply summarizing a series of related papers
research paper4
Research Paper
  • Topic:
    • Content:
      • Introduce problem/issue/general topic
      • Pose question/hypothesis
      • Sequentially build argument
      • Integrate, summarize
      • Conclusions/implications
research paper5
Research Paper
  • Topic:
    • Content:
      • Epilepsy and temporal lobe epilepsy
      • Mossy fibre sprouting
      • Seen in TLE, reproduced in animal models, can be dissociated – rapid kindling and status pre-treatment
      • MFS frequently associated with epilepsy but not essential
      • MFS is not the bases for TLE but may play a role
