Neuroscience Fundamentals


Well it is all wrapped up now. Overall I thought the standard was very good - well done! The feedback most of you gave as reviewers was also excellent: it's a pity a few groups didn't make more use of that feedback.
My own feedback is in the Discussion section on each page.
The three entries that I gave the highest marks were
Parkinsons & pesticide, Promiscuity and Social media

Introduction

Hello everyone, welcome to our wiki where we will create group projects that analyse a media item related to neuroscience. You are required to find an interesting item, analyse the neuroscience presented, and also analyse the intent and effectiveness of the media item.


Getting Started....


Form groups using the discussions on this page, and then write your topics there for approval by Dr Vickery

What to do....


Full requirements for the Project are available here.


Deadline

The project has several stages.
1. You must form your group, and submit your topic and work plan in the wiki by Monday, August 6 at 10 am.
2. You must have a draft of the project ready by Monday, September 10 at 10 am.
3. You must provide review comments on your allocated project by Monday, September 17 at 10 am.
4. The final project must be submitted by Monday, September 24 at 10 am.
Failure to meet a deadline will incur a penalty of 5% per day. Projects can be submitted any time before the deadline.

Structure

Remember to put your names and student numbers at the top of the front page of your wiki entry.

The group pages come off headings in the sidebar....
...you can do this by clicking on "edit navigation" that you will find in tiny tiny font at the bottom of the left-hand menu.
You can decide if you want all your info on one page or have several pages chained together. However just put the link to your "top" page into the navigation bar. Give it a name related to the topic you are presenting, not just "Group 7". Also make sure that your sub-pages have a name related to your group, rather than just "Introduction", because these files are all stored in one location.

Document your work!

A requirement of this project is that all group members make a good contribution to the work. One way that I check this is by requiring each person to edit the wiki over several weeks. You are also required to comment what you have changed and why. You do this when you save the page after editing- USE THE DROP DOWN BUTTON at SAVE and choose the "SAVE WITH COMMENT OPTION", so that everyone can track what has been changed and why.
