PICK YOUR CHARACTER for the Character Analysis! Sign up here. Check the Character Picks list to see who's already got what!Remember, you are diagnosing your character with a disorder and then using the character's behavior, the Myers text, the DSM, and one current research article to "back up" or prove your claim. Then, you are writing a report that tells me all this. Bonus points for turning in projects early. Be sure to read the instructions in the Assignment.To simplify, you will turn in three things:1--Your report has 5 pages: title, abstract, body (at least 2), and references. Use the APA Template (*updated header) here. Most people may end up with more than two pages of body, though, depending on their character's disorder(s).2--A picture of yourself with your name and one or two-sentence bio (as if you are a psychologist) on a piece of paper no bigger than 3x53--The one page character summary will have a picture of your character, the characters names, birth date or age, brief history of symptoms, and diagnosis. These should not be paragraphs, just listed like this (be creative):

With Dr. Irving Gottesman of the University of Virginia and Dr. E. Fuller Torrey of the National Institute of Mental Health. Updated. Go to this unit.23. Health, Mind, and Behavior

26. Schizophrenia: Symptoms
In this module, mental health professionals observe a patient named Jerry, a classic schizophrenic. Jerry's case and medication schedule are described, and his disordered speech and behavior are shown. Prominent psychiatrists describe schizophrenia and the prognosis for those diagnosed with this disease; a locked psychiatric ward provides a graphic illustration.
27. Schizophrenia: Etiology
This module covers the history of attitudes, beliefs, and theories about the etiology of schizophrenia. While the illness was long thought to be environmentally caused, this module emphasizes the scientific evidence in support of its organic origins. Dr. Arnold Scheibel of UCLA Medical Center describes cellular pathology in the hippocampus and speculates on the possible role of viruses. A genetic component is also demonstrated.
This module opens with statistics and a description of autism and how the disorder has been viewed historically. Studies now support the theory that autism results from a lack of normal neural growth during prenatal development. Dr. Temple Grandin of Colorado State University, severely autistic as a child, is presented as someone who overcame her autism and managed to use her way of perceiving the world to her advantage.
31. Brain Transplants in Parkinson's Patients
This module covers the symptoms and mechanisms involved in Parkinson's disease. It explains the effectiveness and limitations of traditional treatment using L-dopa. The module then describes one of the most promising new approaches to treating Parkinson's disease — brain transplant — involving the implantation of tissue into patients' basal ganglia.

32. Mood Disorders: Hereditary Factors

35. The Mind of the Psychopath
Presents the definition of and specific behaviors related to psychopathy, and the ongoing research on this subject.
