Social problem Neurobiology

This is a Brain and Behavior Research Paper based on Social problem Neurobiology. The paper further explains a A Biopsychosocial Perspective on the Neurobiology of COVID-19  in Older Adult.

Brain and Behavior Research Paper- Social problem Neurobiology

Submit a draft of Paper #1 that is at least 50% complete, according to the instructions for this assignment. Your draft must contain the following: a completed title page, a complete introductory paragraph and at least three (3) pages of double-spaced main body text, in APA, 7th ed. format. Include five (5) unique in-text citations, and at least five (5) complete citations on your reference page.

You should submit the draft by due date and includes 50% of full paper.

You will conduct a literature search of the most updated, peer-reviewed literature on the neurobiology of a specific social problem.  Moreover a condition (e.g., medical, mental health, or substance use diagnosis) experienced by a vulnerable, underserved, or oppressed population. You will also identify a particular developmental stage (e.g., early childhood, older adults). An example of a title would be: “A Biopsychosocial Perspective (framework) on the Neurobiology of COVID-19 (condition) in Older Adult .” Once you identify the literature, you will choose a theoretical framework from social work (e.g., biopsychosocial, person-in-environment, bioecological systems) to conceptually organize your paper.

Using the framework as a guide, you will then write a critical synthesis of what you have learned about the neurobiological underpinnings of the factor, with implications for social work practice, policy, and research.

The paper should be 9-12 pages including title page, abstract, and include a minimum of 10 peer-reviewed references.  Be sure to define any terms you use and include the most updated prevalence data on the number of persons affected by the social problem or condition. The Centers for Disease Control Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) (Links to an external site.)is an example of a good source for epidemiological data.
