I. Attending neuroscience seminars/colloquium at ECU (five extra credit points).

Periodically, neuroscience seminars are offered at various locations at ECU. You may attend these seminars. After the seminar, you are required to type a one page essay about the seminar. This essay should be well written and include, in your own words, concise information about the introduction, method, results, and discussion. II. Participation in experiments (extra credit points depend on amount of time spent in experiment). There is a psychology experiment board located in the first floor hallway (toward Rawl annex) that lists experiment options. You may participate in these experiments for extra credit in PSYC 3311. To receive extra credit for your participation, you must obtain a slip from the experimenter that details the title of the experiment, as well as the date and amount of time that you participated. In most cases, two extra credit points per ½ half hour will be given. III. Review of journal articles (five extra credit points). You may review neuropsychology journal articles. Similar to the neuroscience seminars described above, you are then required to type a one page essay about the article. This essay should briefly describe the intro, method, results, and discussion of the article. However, you must NOT plagiarize. Discuss the article in your own, well written words. You must also provide the instructor with a copy of the article. Only reviewed articles from the following journals will be accepted: Neuropsychology
