Week 7 Final Paper

For  Week Seven, you will be using the material covered in your reading list  and the APUS Library, to develop a paper which explores one of the  sensorimotor systems (e.g., vision, touch, taste, smell, or attention.  You will not be allowed to use hearing as a topic as it was examined in  the Week Two paper.) from a biopsychological perspective. Be sure to  address, the physiological (structure and function) as well as the  psychological (cognitive-perceptual) underpinnings of the system. Use each item as a required subheading in your paper. Students should preview the grading rubric before beginning the assignment.

The paper should include:

  • Be  a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 5 full pages, size 12 font Times New  Roman, double spaced with 1 inch margins, NOT including the Title and  References pages.
