Your paper should include: 1) a clear introduction of the physiological area/mechanism and why it is important to study; 2) a review of the relevant literature in the area, including support with data, figures, tables, etc, 3) a conclusion that summarizes the major points and revisits the importance of the topic. As such papers should be divided into 3 parts: introduction (1-2 pages), body (6-8 pages) and summary/conclusions (1-2 pages). These page lengths for each section are suggestions and do not have to be adhered to strictly. However, the purpose is to provide some guidance on how to organize a paper that is 8-12 pages in length (not including references, figures, tables, etc). Papers should be double-spaced in Times New Roman 12 point font with 1”page margins. Your paper needs to be completed in Microsoft Word format. The paper represents 30% of the final course grade and therefore high quality work will be expected. Marks will be allocated in the following manner: Overall quality of paper (10%) Was the paper clearly written and organized. Were data, tables, and/or figures described effectively.
