Brain and Behavior Animal Lab
Project Presentation

You and your labmates will prepare and record a narrated slide presentation that will be watched by students in the human lab and PSY4510. The presentation should be about 15 minutes long. Each of you must contribute equally to the project and the presentation. In turn, you will watch a 15-minute presentation that the human lab students will prepare for you.

Presentation Requirements

1.  Use a dynamite slide template. Avoid drab colors and be sure to include pictures and clip art. Use a font size that is easy to read (e.g. arial, calibri) and include minimal text on each slide.

2. After your title slide, include a background slide. Here you summarize the results of 5 peer-reviewed papers that tested rats and/or mice. One on the effect of hippocampal lesions on stress, one on the effect of hippocampal lesions on memory, one on the effect of diet on the microbiome, one on the effect of diet/microbiome on social behavior, and one on the effect of diet/microbiome on stress.

3. Include a "Our Project" slide to explain what your project was about and what hypotheses were tested.

4. Include the following six slides:

      1. Subjects, Materials, and Procedures for the effect of hippocampal lesions on stress and memory                 

      2.  Results of this study
      3.  Subjects, Materials, and Procedures for the effect of diet/microbiome on social behavior

      4.  Results of this study

      5. Subjects, Materials, and Procedures for the effect of diet/microbiome on stressed induced BG responses

      6.  Results of this study

5.  Include a Summary, Limitations, and Future Research slide.
