Week 2 Neural Plasticity Paper

You are working as a behavioral health specialist in a neurological research center and are responsible for participant education. There are three participants to choose from: Stephanie has experienced a stroke; Jamie has experienced an amputation; and Robert has experienced a traumatic brain injury. Choose one participant to work with.

Prepare a 1,000- to 1,200-word paper that explains the functions and limitations of neural plasticity in the participant’s recovery process.

Include two to three peer-reviewed sources.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines.

1160 words paper

4 Sources in APA format

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
