Sensation and Perception

TERM PAPER GUIDELINES The goal of the term paper is for you to independently explore any area in psychology of your choosing (it may be one we’ve covered or one that we did not cover). In writing about the area, your paper must address each of the following specific items below: Topic= (Sensation and Perception) (1) Identify an area (i.e., major subfield) of psychology and briefly describe its aims and scopes. (2) Describe the general environment, nature, and methods of the research or work of psychologists specializing in this area. (3) In describing the nature and methods of this research or work, also identify a highly specific topic on which a psychologist in this area might focus (any of your choosing, so long as it fits based on your review of the relevant literature). (4) Finally, discuss what sorts of challenges might a psychologist in this area who is working on this topic face in his or her research/work. For example, if you were interested in (1) cognitive psychology, which spans a breadth of topics to be covered primarily in chapters 7 & 9, you would briefly describe the scope and aims of this subfield (e.g., study of human memory, language, thinking, etc.). (2) You might indicate that a cognitive psychologist typically works at a university, teaching and doing experimental research in memory, and then summarize the general theories and methods they use. (3) You might identify “working memory span” and/or “divided attention tasks” as a highly specific research topic within cognitive psychology and the study of memory, and provide a description of this work, ideally with at least one specific example. (4) Finally, you would need to discuss the challenges that a cognitive psychologist might have to face in studying this topic (e.g., difficulty in controlling for extraneous factors – such as individual differences in various mental abilities -- that might influence memory other than your experimental manipulation). Specific Guidelines 1. You will be graded on completeness, readability, and clarity. In short, the better the writing, the better your grade will be. You should use subheadings in your paper for each of the major questions you are expected to address (e.g., Area of Interest, Research and Specific Topic, Challenges). The use of theses subheadings will help to organize the paper, and ensure that you touch upon each aspect. You do NOT need an abstract. 2. Your term paper should range from 6 to 8 pages in length, including a title page and reference page (although clarity and completeness is much more important than page length, so it could feasibly be a bit shorter or longer), must be double spaced, use a 12 point standard type-face font (e.g., Times New Roman). 3. You are required to use APA reference formatting in text and at the end of the paper (and will lose some points for using another format…). You can find examples of how to use APA format here: https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/ 4. You are required to use at least 3 other sources besides your text and any relevant lecture notes from class. All sources must be appropriately listed on an APA style “References” page at the end of your paper and cited in text using APA format. Appropriate sources include research articles from scholarly journals, other texts (ideally ones that are reasonably current), and any of the more informative web-pages that were listed in the text if relevant.
