This assignment is designed to encourage students to apply the concepts they learn in class to other topics beyond the scope of the course. Pick one of the two options listed below, the prompts are attached and delve further into that topic by researching and writing a short research paper (minimum of 750 words, excluding references) in response to specific prompts. All questions must be addressed completely for full credit. Plan to use multiple resources to find evidence supporting your ideas and responses.

Neurological Disease

Research a neurological disease that interests you and write a short paper (minimum of 750 words,

excluding references) in your own words that addresses each of the following guiding questions.

1. What disease did you choose and why are you interested in this disease? 2. What are the individual symptoms of the disease, and what body systems does the disease

affect to elicit these symptoms? 3. Does this disease illustrate how certain body systems are interconnected? How so? 4. What are the causes of the disease, if they are known? If not known, what research is being

conducted to find out? 5. Describe at least two possible treatments or recommendations for reducing susceptibility to or

the effects of this neurological disease. 6. How have your experiences in BSC1005L supported your understanding of the structure and

function of the nervous system and neurological diseases?

*Be sure your paper is organized with appropriate paragraphing and headings. This should read as a cohesive paper, NOT a list of answers to these questions. Proofread your paper and remember to cite all sources both with in-text citations and a works cited using MLA format.

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Research the following STIs in more detail: chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, HPV, syphilis, hepatitis B, and herpes. Write a short paper (minimum of 750 words, excluding references) in your own words that addresses each of the following questions. *Note: You do not need to list and reference every STI for each question, but rather pick 2-3 examples for each question. Do not use the same 2-3 STIs for the entire paper—it is important to demonstrate that you researched ALL the STIs listed.

1. Describe the testing process for both males and females. What physical tests are done in order to test for what infections? (blood, urine, etc.).

2. What does each of the tests do? How does your sample get analyzed in order to confirm or deny a possible infection?

3. How long do you have to wait in order for tests to be accurate after an unprotected sexual encounter? How does this vary for different viral versus bacterial STIs?

4. What are the easiest STIs to test for and why? Which ones are more difficult and why? 5. Once tested, how do you treat different STIs? 6. When should people get tested for STIs and how regularly? 7. How have your experiences in BSC1005L supported your understanding of STIs and how to

prevent transmission of STIs?

*Be sure your paper is organized with appropriate paragraphing and headings. This should read as a cohesive paper, NOT a list of answers to these questions. Proofread your paper and remember to cite all sources both with in-text citations and a works cited using MLA format.
