Advertisements and Human Brain

Effective advertisements integrate elements from both the left side of the brain as well as the right. They contain elements that appeal to emotions as well as having rational arguments. A laundry detergent may be advertised as having the rational benefit of getting clothes cleaner but also contain the emotional promise that your mother-in-law will think of you more favorably.

For each of the following websites, discuss the balance of left-brain versus right-brain advertising appeal.

Pier 1 Imports – http://www.pier1.com
Pig O’ My Heart Potbellies – http://www.potbellypigs.com
Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen – www.popeyes.com
Backcountry.com – www.backcountry.com

ADHD (Signature Assignmnet about ADHD)

ADHD (Signature Assignmnet about ADHD)

This assignment is very step by step, it literally tells you section by section to answer and format the case study.
For your signature assignment, you are to write hypothetical case study of one person with a disability or disorder, from birth through end-of-life. The purpose of this assignment is to show your understanding of the lifespan developmental issues of someone with a disorder. Choose a different disorder than the one you covered for your case assignment. You may choose to study an individual with a disorder that develops in childhood (e.g. autism), or an individual that develops a disorder later in life. Use readings from modules 1-8 and your own research to back up your case study with facts and theoretical perspectives. Make sure to cite all of your sources.

Because everyone has individual differences, you do not need to outline every possible developmental trajectory of the disorder. This is the point of doing a case study – you need only envision the individual development of one person. It is possible that the individual you are studying does not show developmental problems in some stages. If this is the case, outline your case’s normal development for the age range. The following is a sample outline for the paper- in the files attached.

You should use a minimum of 5-8 academic sources in your Signature Assignment.

Pronoun Use: when writing academic papers, do not use “I,” “you,” “we,” or other personal pronouns. When doing academic writing, we do not want your opinion – we want to know what the experts say about the topic you are researching. Do not use contractions such as “don’t” or “isn’t” – all contractions should be written out, like “do not” or “is not.”

“Use readings from modules 1-8 and your own research to back up your case study with facts and theoretical perspectives. Make sure to cite all of your sources.”

I will forward you some articles to use- and of course your own you must use too.
