Use the APUS Online Library to look up information on a particular drug used to treat a neurological or psychiatric disorder. If you are unable to find material in the Library on the particular drug you select, you may use other credible online sources. Any additional sources used must be websites with scientifically grounded information. Avoid .org sites which are frequently established by persons suffering from the same disorder and/or their family members and can be important sources of support for those persons, but which may also contain unsubstantiated and personal perspective based information. Also avoid using pharmaceutical sites as your only source of information; while they may look scientific, they also are maintained by companies in the business of manufacturing and selling medications. WebMD is an example of a web source which contains scientifically grounded information about treatments for various disorders including neurological and psychiatric ones. The sources you use must be no more than 5 years old.
Report what you find for each of the categories below:
· The class of the drug
· The mechanism of action
· Receptor sites the drug targets
· The drug’s main affect
· Unexpected effects and side effects and drug interactions
· Non-FDA uses of the drug

Then, discuss the basic difference between determining the location of a sound source in the brain and determining the location of the visual object in the brain. Lastly, discuss the somewhat surprising outcome of research on hearing loss in urban versus rural environments, and the physiological explanation behind it. Support your belief and use specific examples.
One of the things that impact a child’s overall development is nutrition.
Explain why nutrition is important for child development, and how it has evolved within the family unit. Apply this concept to the lifestyle of busy parents and the impact it has had on the child, and within the family. How has the food industry responded? How has our government responded? How have schools responded both with what they serve students and also what they teach students?

Review recently published (within the past five years) peer-reviewed scholarly articles located in the AMU/APUS University’s online library databases. Discuss a criminal justice, intelligence studies, international relations or security management topic requesting instructor approval of the topic you would like for your research proposal (term project) paper. In doing so, please remember for this class you are selecting a topic NOT for writing a research paper about, but rather for writing a proposal to do actual hands-on research using scientific research methodology. In your discussion post discuss what you have identified in the current peer-reviewed literature located in the APUS Library databases on a topic you wish to research. Briefly discuss the literature and express what still needs to be researched or requires further research on the topic you would like to address in your research proposal. In other words, did the authors of the studies already done on this topic you reviewed call for further research on the topic or something to do with the topic? Then again, perhaps you identified a problem that still needs to be researched on the topic where the current literature is lacking. If so, discuss what it is and how it pertains to the topic and why it needs to be researched and who would benefit from the research. After doing so, you are to provide a ‘Working Title’ to obtain (instructor approval) for your Research Proposal, as discussed in this week’s lesson. Understanding this may change as your Research Proposal develops during the course.
1) How does an investigator prepare for an interview or interrogation? Are there differences?
2) Find a state supreme court or state appeals case from your state in which a conviction of a defendant from a lower court was overturned due to improper police tactics during an interrogation. Discuss and properly list the website.

The local school board is meeting in a few days to vote on the inclusion of a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum for all grades. The curriculum will be called, ALL ABOUT ME (for elementary students), CHANGING BODIES (for middle school students) AND TAKING CARE OF OUR BODIES AND MINDS (for high school students). The opinion is based on the ACOG opinion paper and the research that supported it (see below) . Some community members are opposed to having this curriculum in the schools, while others are in support of a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum. You are the school board president, and your area has seen a rise in pre-teen and teen pregnancy. Your school system has also been sued for permitting sexual harassment of female, homosexual, and nonbinary students at all grade levels. Pressures have been building from many sides, and after a Title IX review, the team conducting the review recommended instituting a comprehensive sex education program that started in preschool as recommended by ACOG. After much consideration, the school superintendent and the school board have agreed that this is the best solution. Regardless of your personal views, write an argument that responds to parental opposition to this decision. Be sure to support your argument with information from our readings or other appropriate research-based information.
Joseph B. Walther (2007) explains that in computer-mediated communication, we often put forth the best version of ourselves; for example, we choose the best photographs to post and carefully word captions. We do this in an attempt to manage other people’s impressions of us. This is called selective self-presentation.

Answer the following questions.
How do people construct an identity on social media? Provide examples. Is selective self-presentation occurring?
Is it unethical to create a different version of yourself online? When could it be considered unethical?
which areas in psychology are you most interested in learning more about? Why?
How did the object of study in psychology change over the history of the field since the 19th century?
What are some of the factors you need to bear in mind as you communicate with families? Think about some of the families you may have met in your work in schools, their home language, and how their experiences are similar to, or different from, your own experiences in growing up (for example, urban versus rural, single-parent versus two-parent families, or small families versus large, extended families). Watch this video to learn about some of the insights teachers have gained from communicating with their students’ families.
One teacher describes the challenge of communicating with families if you do not share a common language. Can you think of a time when you have been in a similar situation? How did you handle it?
