For this assignment search the empirical research from the past ten years to find five to six studies on the treatment and neurological components of a disorder of the basal ganglia. Discuss the treatment options and their neurological components and the challenges of treating this disorder. Do you believe that this disorder will eventually be treatable and, if so, what would the method of treatment be? Be sure to include a discussion of the components and function of the basal ganglia and the neurological components of the chosen disorder.
This assignment should be 5 to 6 pages excluding the title page, abstract, and reference section. Scholarly research must be current (research cannot be older than ten years) with a focus on the genetic and biological components of the disorder and treatment.
Writing should at a graduate level with complete, well-developed sentences and paragraphs and written in APA format 6th ed. Students should preview the grading rubric for further direction and information before they begin the writing process. Include the 5 required subheadings below in your paper.
- An introduction and overview of the components and functions of the basal ganglia
- The neurological components of the chosen disorder
- Treatment options and their neurological components
- Treatment challenges and future methods of treatment
- Direction of future research and conclusions
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.
