Historical summary–This is here you begin working on your mini-review. What topic are you going to write your review on? Find an example of an early peer reviewed original research article that helped shape this field. Looking at review articles and the dates of papers they cite is one way to begin unraveling this thread. The Davis book will also be excellent for providing background into this area. I will provide an example for you to see. Write a one-page summary describing this experiment, the findings, the importance and how this work was received into the scientific community. I’ve had questions about “how old” historical means–it depends on the field. Some areas such as vaccination have roots that go back to the 1800’s, other areas such as the immune-neuro connection have developed just over the last 10 years. The date of the historical article should be representative of the beginnings of the field you have chosen to research.
