Final Project: Different Forms of Visual Agnosia (1,600 word paper)
– Discuss different forms of visual agnosia of what features those different forms have in common versus what distinguishes them, or you could broaden your focus on a more overall approach to causes and symptoms of visual agnosia.
– Include sensory information in the world, how sensory organs work, and how our perceptual systems make sense of sensory information.
-Needs to be 1,600 words paper
– at least three peer-reviewed sources of information must be mentioned.
Introduction: Make sure the first paragraph or couple of paragraphs clearly indicates the purpose of the project and what will be discussed.
Content Organization/ Paragraph Structure: The key to an organized paper or presentation is well-structured paragraphs. Make sure each paragraph focuses on a single main idea and that the main idea is made clear in the first sentence. Next, organize your paragraphs so that one logically flows from the next.
Conclusion: Your conclusion should be the last paragraph or last couple of paragraphs. It should not introduce new information unless that information is ancillary and merely being provided to lend support to the concluding statements. Use the conclusion to summarize the main points discussed in the project (although do avoid repeating yourself) and to synthesize those main points into a parting message. The conclusion basically refers to the purpose of the project mentioned in the introduction in light of what has transpired over the course of the paper or recording.
References: Your project should cite at least three peer-reviewed sources. You will need to include a written References section in APA style format (attached separately if you are submitting a podcast). Written citations must be in APA style format as well, and verbally cited sources must mention the authors’ names and year of publication.
