Week 3

This week, I met up in the professor’s office again and we started to work. I was later joined by the same people I met with last week. The professor split up the articles we had to read between myself and the U of A freshman. This week, we only looked at the article the freshman was reading because it was a very long and difficult article to read. With this article, we tried organizing all of the information about the experiment and patients in a table so it would be easier to look at in the future. We looked at the number of patients, the medications they were taking, the patient’s ages and genders, the specific kind of coil the researchers used for the rTMS, and much more. We had to look through the article very carefully because it was a confusing and difficult paper to understand. This experience helped me understand much more about how to organize data into separate columns that will help in the future when it is time to write a paper. It also helped me to understand how to look very carefully at the paper and try to pick out all of the useful information.
