1. Do a complete APA-style report, leaving out only the Abstract section  Some hints by section follow:Introduction
As explained in the background document, there have been similar experiments done, but none using our precise Stimulus Onset Asynchronies (SOAs). Therefore you can propose this experiment as a new one to examine in more depth the time course between SOA and priming.  You can also mention applications to other independent variables, such as degree of Asperger’s, bilingualism, etc.  Note that you should also find at least a couple of relevant articles to cite in support of your proposed experiment.
Methods
 Give all relevant details, (approximate size of letters, fact that everyone used different computers, viewing distance was up to participant, number of words in each condition, etc).  Sub-sections should include 
Participants(specify number, rough mix of genders, fact that all are students, etc.)
Equipment(pc computers using custom program)
Design( all repeated measures (since every Participant (P)  participated in every condition), 3 (SOAs) by 3 (prime-word conditions), though only two prime-word conditions will be analyzed, making it more like a 3 x 2 design.
Procedure  Specify step-by-step what each P does. 
 
 Results
(You can analyze the results once there are at least 18 people who have put their data in the spreadsheet.  Leave out your own data)
Complete a table like the following for the group means:
Reaction Time
100 ms
200 ms
500 ms
Means
Related Prime
714.9
678.3
662.25
685.15
Neutral Prime
811.85
786.25
747.5
781.866
Means
763.375
732.275
704.875
733.508
Prepare a graph for RT as a function of SOA, with separate lines for the two prime conditions, as illustrated in the background document from Canvas.
You should analyze the Results with ezANOVA, as explained in the background document from Canvas.
Please include everything into a single document.  Cut and paste the output of ezANOVA into the document, in an Appendix.
 Discussion
This should be in your own words, and not necessarily in the following order or format, but:
1. We are predicting a significant main effect for Relatedness.  Related primes should be quicker.
2. It is not clear what should be predicted for the main effect of SOA, though based on an earlier, class’ results, we might expect that longer SOAs will give quicker RTs.
3. It is also not clear what should be predicted for the interaction of SOA and Relatedness.  The information document gives one hypothetical possibility, but that is only for illustrative purposes.  Regardless of what we predict, an interaction between SOA and Relatedness might give some insight into the ideal time period for spreading activation, as discussed in the information document.
References
All cited articles should be included in standard APA format.

 One common misunderstanding of the neo-Darwinian synthesis is that each of the characteristics produced in the evolutionary process must be adaptations. There are instead cases in which non-adaptive characteristics can become prevalent in populations through evolutionary processes. What does Kitcher give as an example of such a case?

ATTACHED IS THE READING CHAPTERS FOR REFERENCE
 
In this discussion, you will evaluate a research question and  determine how that question might best be analyzed.  To do this, you  will need to identify the appropriate application of course specified  statistical tests, examine assumptions and limitations of course  specified statistical tests, and communicate in writing critiques of  statistical tests.
A researcher wishes to study the effect of a new drug on blood  pressure.  Consider and discuss the following questions as you respond:

Would you recommend using a z-test, a t-test, or an ANOVA for the analysis?  Explain your answer.

What would your choice of test depend on?  For the test you select, explain your design and your comparison groups. 

Would the hypothesis be directional or non-directional? 

Would the test be one-tailed or two-tailed? 

What would be the null and what would be the alternative hypothesis?

 Prior to completing this discussion, please read the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct  (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.(2010) and Fact Sheet on End-of-Life Care (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. (2014), as well as the Block, et al. (2006), Kwak, & Haley (2005), and Torbic (2011) articles required for this week.
You are working at an area hospital dealing primarily with end-of-life decisions and palliative care. For this discussion, you will be reviewing the PSY605 End-of-Life Case Scenarios document and making recommendations based on the information provided in the scenarios.
All end-of-life choices and medical decisions have complex psychosocial components, ramifications, and consequences that have a significant impact on suffering and the quality of living and dying. The issues involved in this process of decision making are based on issues of developmental stage, gender, race, ethnicity, culture, health, family, and physical, cognitive, and psychosocial states. For your initial post, you will apply concepts from developmental psychology to create your recommended courses of action for either Roger or Geri.
To begin, carefully review the PSY605 End-of-Life Case Scenarios document, select one of the cases, then create a recommended course of action for the scenario selected by addressing the following questions:

What is the best recommended course of action for the client at this time, and why?
What potential effects would themes such as the client’s culture, ethnicity, family, education, and gender have on the situation and recommendation(s)?
How does the client’s developmental stage factor into your recommendation?
How do the client’s physical, cognitive, and psychosocial states affect your recommendation(s)?
How might the developmental stage(s) of the client’s family member(s) affect your recommendation?
How will you present your recommendation(s) to both the patient and family member(s)?     

What consideration(s) would affect your manner of presentation?

Are there considerations that cannot be processed at this time because of lack of information in the written scenario?

Next, analyze and comment on the ethical considerations related to the scenario. Note how the APA’s Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. might provide guidance.
Remember to evaluate the unique scholarly perspectives presented in your reading to support your recommended course of action and analysis of ethical considerations.

Follow basic APA formatting i.e. 12pt font (Times or Arial), double spaced, 1 inch margins. You do not need a cover page but you must cite references in APA style.
Be clear, and concise, but thorough in order to expect full points.

 
Please check your grammar, sentence structure, and thought process – as this assignment is language focused 😉
Please watch the video attached above – it deals with a classic case study known as Genie the Wild Child
It’s 55 minutes long and really interesting.
ALSO:-  Read the attached Article:    TheEarlyCatastrophe(1).pdf
Now:

Discuss the case study (video) with reference to the key arguments on language development that are covered in your book, and the video, namely the critical period vs the sensitive period, and the behavioral approach vs the LAD approach (Noam Chomsky). How do these ideas clash and combine with this case.    
Use the article to assist in discussing how language acquisition affects other aspects of development.
What are your take away thoughts about language development – does this case answer the questions?  If not, why?  What else do we need etc. make sure to use peer reviewed journal research to support your arguments. Do not use direct quotes from the article, only paraphrase and cite accordingly.

  Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read the required Baltes (1

 Prior to beginning work on this discussion, please read the required Baltes (1987) articles for this week.
For your initial post, choose one contemporary issue or problem related to developmental psychology that is prevalent in today’s news and research a minimum of one peer-reviewed article on this issue in the Ashford University Library. Evaluate the issue based on one of the theoretical perspectives (Freud’s Psychosexual Theory, Erikson’s Psychosocial Theory, Piaget’s Theory of Cognitive Development, etc.) that we have studied across this course. Explain how the theory provides a deeper understanding of the contemporary issue. Propose one well-developed solution to address the issue or problem.
