Assignment: Role of the neurotransmitter

Select one of the following options for this discussion. Indicate in your post which option you are responding to.

Option A: Review this week’s reading, which introduced the role of neurotransmitters in human behavior and personality. Use the Ashford University Online Library to locate one peer-reviewed research study which was published in the last five years and that implicates a neurotransmitter as the cause of an abnormal behavior (psychological disorder). Clearly indicate in your discussion:

The abnormal behavior being studied.

The neurotransmitter that is implicated.

The role of the neurotransmitter in the expression of the abnormal behavior.

Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words and utilize at least one peer-reviewed source that was published within the last five years, cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts. Respond substantively to two peers who chose a different neurotransmitter or abnormal behavior than you did. Address the role of the neurotransmitter in the expression of the abnormal behavior that they each selected. Are there other possible explanations for the cause of this abnormal behavior? Which explanation do you think makes the most sense? Why?

Option B: Review this week’s reading, which introduced the impact of early trauma on function and personality development. Use the Ashford University Online Library to locate a peer-reviewed research study which was published within the last five years and that examines the impact of brain trauma on the function and development of personality. Clearly indicate in your discussion:

The trauma that occurred.

The duration between the time of the trauma and the research study.

The impact of the trauma on overall function.

The impact of the trauma on personality and behavior.

Your initial post should be a minimum of 250 words and utilize at least one peer-reviewed source that was published within the last five years, cited according to APA guidelines as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
