A good attempt at a complex topic - nice work!


Well done for clearly describing theories relating emotion to bodily functions. This section could have been improved by relating the theories back to dopamine to demonstrate relevant practical application. To improve further, evidence of critical thinking could also be included.


Some very interesting research was presented. This required a sophisticated understanding of the content and there was generally evidence of this. Try to refer only to peer-reviewed literature; avoiding websites etc. as these are not scholarly sources.

Written expression[edit]

Well done for providing links throughout. The body of the chapter was well structured, however the introduction and conclusions could have been more clear. To improve further, try to avoid using too much scientific and technical language - remember that the piece is to be aimed at an intelligent layperson. ShaunaB (discusscontribs)

A nice presentation, which could be improved by simplifying content and shifting the focus to be more practical.

Structure and content[edit]

Exploration of theory and research is sound. However, this section could be improved by simplifying content so that it is appropriate for the target audience. The flow was good throughout the body of the chapter. A slightly longer introduction would be beneficial.


The presentation was delivered with a clear voice, however speech could have been slower. The presentation was difficult to follow in sections (as a result of complexity), and this made it less engaging. Also, remember to use headings for every slide.

Production quality[edit]

Picture and sound quality are good. Powerpoint could have been used more effectively (e.g. use of pictures). ShaunaB (discusscontribs)
