Post Peer Assessment Discussion

Hey guys in response to the peers i moved around my pictures, gave them text under them, and added a lot of new information and some photos to the structure section. the only issue we have left is to clean up our reference list since it mostly looks like a bunch of pubmed IDs. i guess we will ask mark what to do with this.--Michael Orenstein 21:48, 25 May 2011 (EST)

Week 7

  • This is the week before the mid-session break.
  • In the lab this week we will have an opportunity to discuss any issues which are slowing progress on your project.
  • The Thursday of the week beginning 02 May will be when all projects will be open to Peer Assessment.
  • What you have on your page by Thursday of that week will be the content that others in the class will comment upon.

Week 6

  1. I see many groups now have subsection titles for their projects.
  2. Here are some searches: Pubmed search all databases junction | PLoS junction | JCB junction You can now simply put your own search term into each top window.
  3. Now's the time to get your images, movies, media etc uploaded. Biomed central | JCB | JCB Archive | PLoS. Once uploaded you can make a gallery on either your project or discussion page using <gallery>File:name here</gallery> tags with your image files listed between the tags. When you upload project images, add this text as it appears replacing # with your own Group number to the summary information [[Category:2011Project#]].
  4. Shown below are the criteria that will be used to assess your final project.

Group Assessment Criteria

  • The key points relating to the topic that your group was allocated are clearly described.
  • The choice of content, headings and sub-headings, diagrams, tables, graphs show a good understanding of the topic area.
  • Content is correctly cited and referenced.
  • The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level using the student’s own innovative diagrams, tables or figures and/or using interesting examples or explanations.
  • Evidence of significant research relating to basic and applied sciences that goes beyond the formal teaching activities.
  • Relates the topics and content of the Wiki entry to learning aims of cell biology.
  • Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers and articulates how the Wiki could be improved (or not) based on peer comments/feedback. Demonstrates an ability to review own work when criticised in an open edited wiki format. Reflects on what was learned from the process of editing a peer’s wiki.
  • Evaluates own performance and that of group peers to give a rounded summary of this wiki process in terms of group effort and achievement.
  • The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic and covered the key areas necessary to inform your peers in their learning.
  • Develops and edits the wiki entries in accordance with this sites wiki guidelines.

By Week 5

Each Group member has added to the discussion page:

  1. A Review Article
  2. A Historic Research Article
  3. A Current Research Article

No two students should add the same paper and there should be a link to the original article.


Historic background

Mechanism of action

Development of the neuromuscular junction

Table Comparing Junctions

A table comparing other groups junctions and how they work

Common neuromuscular junction disorders

Current associated research

Future research

Hey guys, I've added a sub-heading of common disorders of neuromuscular junction--Shan Ruan 10:52, 31 March 2011 (EST)

table we can use --z3265772 10:32, 31 March 2011 (EST)

comparing, different types of junctions

This table shows invasiveness and timeframe for some prenatal diagnostic techniques
Invasiveness Diagnostic technique Comments Time that procedure can be performed Diagram
Non Invasive picture Tests for: neural tube defects, chromosomal abnormalities and congenital heart abnormalities

Risks: No risks currently indicated for ultrasound use in prenatal diagnosis.


Weeks 18-20 picture
Invasive picture Tests for: chromosomal abnormalities and genetic abnormalities

Risks: text


Weeks 10-12 picture
Invasive picture Tests for: chromosomal abnormalities, fetal infections, and genetic abnormalities

Risks: Miscarriage <1%, stillbirths 3%, and small risk of infection.


Weeks 15-16 picture
Invasive picture Tests for:chromosomal abnormalities, blood disorders, some metabolic disorders, fetal infections, and some causes of structural problems.



Weeks 18-22 picture
Less Invasive picture Tests for:determines the likelihood of premature birth in women of high risk

Risks:No known risks for the testing of Fetal Fibronectin, as is it less invasive than other techniques.


Weeks 24-34 picture
Non Invasive picture Tests for:AFP is a type of screening test and do not diagnose problems, but signal whether further testing is needed. Normal AFP levels are increased in Neural Tube Defects and Omphalocoele & decreased in Down Syndrome.

Risks:No known risks as Maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein is non invasive

Neuromuscular Junction (NMJ)



Embryonic development of NMJ

Functional anatomy of the NMJ

The role of Acetylcholine (ACh), its receptors and inhibitors

Abnormalities in signal transmission at the NMJ with associated diseases

Current research combined with techniques used

--Mark Hill 17:18, 30 March 2011 (EST) OK Group 6, You and Group 5 are the only groups that have begun your project work, well done! Though I can only see contributions from Z3255968 and Z3265772. This search should get you started with the references Search Pubmed: Neuromuscular Junction

The actual wiki page for neuromuscular junction contains the headings - --Jill De Coster 08:09, 29 March 2011 (EST)

-Mechanism of action

-Development of the neuromuscular junction

-Knockout studies

-Neuromuscular block

-See also

-External links

-Further reading


Here is a link to my old Embryology page i did last semester, we should maybe look at a similar layout? --Jill De Coster 12:20, 24 March 2011 (EST)
