References should come from journal articles from within the last seven years, and should be included at the end of your paper in APA format. Citations should be in the body of your paper. Additional references can come from any trusted source. Reference librarians can help you!
You will be graded on how complete and clear your sections are (see numbered section headings below).
Note on plagiarism: plagiarism detection will be used for this assignment. There are 2 key ways to avoid plagiarism. 1. Cite any idea you take from some other source. 2.

1. Symptoms: What are the symptoms associated with this agnosia? What kinds of accommodations will someone with this agnosia need in order to resume typical function?
