Heuristics are a mental shortcut in the problem solving and decision-making processes. While heuristics can speed up the decision-making process, they can produce errors. Availability, anchoring, and representative heuristics are three types of heuristics in this module.

 

 

1. Explain availability heuristic, anchoring heuristic, and representative heuristic (in your own words)

 

 

2. Give an example of a problem that you face in everyday life that lends itself to the use of heuristics. Explain how you solved the problem through the use of one of the heuristic mentioned in example one. (BE SPECIFIC so I can evaluate your understanding of heuristics). 

 

 

3. Of the three types of heuristics we discussed in this module, which type have you used most frequently – or which do you think you will use most in the future? Why?

In your Final Project, you will synthesize an overview of the major theories relating to the pathology of a disorder as well as provide a detailed discussion of the etiology (causes) and clinical interventions, using research to support your analysis.  Your topic will be the neuropsychological disorder that was selected and approved by the instructor in your Week One assignment, and for which you provided an outline in the Week Two assignment.  

In keeping with the focus of this class, the emphasis of your paper will be on the neuroscience aspects of the disorder, to include:  Theories of etiology (causes)Associated factors in development of the disorder (genetic, environmental, familial, lifestyle)Pathology (abnormalities of physical structure and function, including genetic and biochemical aspects)Treatment options (pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic, with rationales for use based on current understanding of the disorder)Diagnostic and research technologies employed in clinical diagnosis, care, and basic science research  

Your research will include a minimum of six to eight peer-reviewed sources, which provide evidence-based information regarding the biological and psychological features of the disorder and were published within the last five years. At least four of your references should be peer-reviewed publications of original research studies. To justify your assertions, provide in-text citations for all factual statements taken from your research, with corresponding references drawn from scholarly sources.  All citations and sources are to be documented according to APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center, and should support and enhance your analysis of the selected disorder. Sources may include review articles, original research articles, information from government agencies (e.g., National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control, Food and Drug Administration, Drug Enforcement Administration) or professional societies (e.g., professional society position papers or clinical practice guidelines).      

Final Project- Components

Section I:  Introduction

This section should provide a general introduction to the topic as well as an overview of the background and history of the disorder. Further, it should provide a succinct thesis statement of the purpose and overall direction of the paper.  For instance, if your paper will have a large focus on the role of particular neurotransmitters in the etiology of the disorder as a rationale for treatment options, you should indicate this in the introduction. Finally, this section should provide demographic data that indicates the prevalence of the disorder in both general and specific populations.  

Specific required components of the Introduction:    Succinct thesis statement (one or more sentences detailing the focus of your Final Project and informing the reader about your topic and the scope of your paper)Define the type of disorderNeurologicalPsychologicalNeuropsychologicalDiagnostic criteriaWhat components must be present for the disorder to be diagnosed?Include physical and psychological signs and symptoms.  Reason(s) why you chose this topicPersonal experienceProfessional experienceOther reasonEpidemiologyWho is affected?Are they young/old?Male/femaleRural/urbanEthnicities

Section II: Discussion

This section should make up the majority of the Final Project in terms of size. Here, you will expand upon the main aspects of the disorder and provide details relating to the disorder and its management. This section should provide specific and detailed information (Reminder: All statements of fact require an in-text citation).   Cited/referenced sources should be used to support your analysis of the components of the discussion.  

Specific required components of the Discussion section:    Detailed description of the disorderSigns and symptomsEpidemiologyAny subtypes of the disorderDetailed description of the natural history of the disorderHow the disorder develops over time with treatmentHow the disorder develops over time without treatmentMethods used to diagnose, evaluate, and manage the disorderInitial diagnosis (e.g., physical exam, imaging and/or laboratory testing, special studies, psychological evaluation, psychometric testing)  Ongoing management (e.g., physical exam, imaging and/or laboratory testing, special studies, psychological evaluation, psychometric testing)Risk factorsGeneticsLifestyleEnvironmental factorsOther causative factorsKnownTheorizedNervous system structures and/or pathways involved in the disorder (detailed information regarding the underlying pathology as it applies to these structures and functional pathways)Neurotransmitter(s) and receptor system(s) involved in the pathology of the disorderCurrent treatment optionsDrug (pharmacologic) therapiesNonpharmacologic therapies (including psychological and other therapeutic services)Type of care providers (e.g., medical, nursing, therapists)Type of healthcare setting (e.g., hospital, home, outpatient, nursing facility)Future areas of researchTreatment optionsEvaluation and diagnostic methods for initial diagnosisIncreasing knowledge relating to etiology and pathologic processes

Section III: Conclusion

Provide a concluding summary of your findings regarding your selected disorder. The conclusion is a summarization of information that has already been presented.  Typically, if you mention something in the conclusion section of an academic paper, you should have already mentioned this aspect of the topic earlier in the paper. 

Specific required components of the Conclusion section:    The conclusion reaffirms your initial thesis statement.The conclusion may be one or more paragraphs. Use the material you have discussed in the paper to support the validity of your synthesis and elaborate on the theme of your paper.

Writing the Final Project
