All brief paper responses are due in class on the day of the associated paper's oral presentation, so that those students who have written responses can serve as additional discussants of paper. Responses will not be accepted after class or by email. However, to account for possible illness or other unavoidable absences, each student may skip two responses without penalty to the final mark. The only exceptions to this policy are in cases of documented special circumstances (e.g., extended illness with doctor's note).

Examples: to see the kinds of essays we are expecting, you may wish to take a look at the two example papers below. The first is an essay for TCM, and shows the level of detail and general structure we are expecting. The second essay is from the Computational Cognitive Neuroscience course, which has a very similar (but not identical) final essay requirement involving describing 1-2 papers, with analysis.
