Nervous System Diseases

Medline Plus:  Please use this site as an overview to get started on your project:

"Neurologic diseases are disorders of the brain, spinal cord and nerves throughout your body. Together they control all the workings of the body. When something goes wrong with a part of your nervous system, you can have trouble moving, speaking, swallowing, breathing or learning. You can also have problems with your memory, senses or mood."

Choose a disease to study.  You will create a presentation in Prezi which will have diagrams, illustrations, and graphics if necessary.
Included in the presentation will be:
  • definition
  • key words
  • causes & symptoms
  • diagnosis
  • treatment
  • prognosis / prevention
  • cure / future research
The end slide will be your bibliographic entries.  A minimum of 3 resources will be accepted.  Use APA citation.  
RESOURCES that will be required in your research:
GVRL - remember to ask for login if necessary
MARVEL - Consumer Health for articles; AccessScience for specific information
NoodleBib - Bibliography

  • Prezi show should be approximately 3 minutes in length.  
  • Notes should be prepared to use during your talk - do not read from the slides (which should emphasize the visual aspects, not the written notes!
  • Submit one question about your disease that can be used on a quiz over the presentations
