Electrophysiological Recording of Conduction Velocity and Sensory o The results section is important o It is often where a researcher starts reading o Used to summarize the data ex. Tables, figures, short written responses o There is an analysis of the data (statistical analysis) o In the results section there is no interpretation of the data; however the reader can make their own interpretation o This interpretation Write a results section o Scenario: o Imagine you are a researcher that has collected conduction velocity (metres·sec-1) data from 6 cockroach (Periplaneta americana) sensory neurons at varying temperatures to submit to a scientific journal. You obtained the following raw data: Table 1. Conduction velocity (metres·sec ) in tibial sensory neurons of Periplaneta americana. Cockroach* Temperature (°C) A B C D E F 0 1 0.3 0.9 1.5 1.5 0.8 5 1.3 0.6 1 1.6 1.8 1.1 10 1.6 1.1 1.3 1.6 1.8 1.4 15 1.7 1.5 1.5 1.9 1.9 1.8 20 1.8 1.9 1.8 2.4 2.1 2 25 2.5 2 2.4 2.7 2.6 2.3 Using the data in Table 1, you decide to run a one-way repeated measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) to test whether or not the means of several groups (Temperatures 0 – 25°C) are different. You choose a repeated measures analysis since each cockroach leg was stimulated at multiple temperatures. You perform the appropriate statistical analysis and find that there is a significant difference in the conduction velocity with each 5°C increase in temperature (F = 57.7; d.f. = 35; P<0.001). Reflecting on this data, you should design a figure to present the summarized results and write a Results section to the scientific manuscript in which you would be presenting this data (Table 1 above). Your written results section should be a maximum of one page double-spaced 12pt font with standard margins. Do not include sample calculations.!Submit this assignment online following the instructions posted on Blackboard. Refer to the assignment submission deadlines for the specific
