WHAT IS A THESIS STATEMENT? You can think of your thesis statement as the answer to the subject you 
are trying to explain. Remember that a thesis statement is not the first thing you come up with when writing 
your essay. It is the result of reading and thinking about the topic of your essay. After collecting and 
organizing the information about your topic you can develop your thesis statement. As you conduct your 
literature search, be mindful of conflicting data. Below are two examples of thesis statements for expository 
essays. 
1. Depression appears to be caused by an imbalance in one or more of the biogenic amines. 
2. Our ability to perceive color is the result of cells in the retina that are responsive to different wavelengths 
of the electromagnetic spectrum and the processing of this information by specific cells in various areas of 
the cerebral cortex. 
LENGTH: The body of your essay should be about 3000-4000 words. I will not read anything beyond 4000 
words.
TOPIC AND CONTENT: Your paper may be about any topic that interests you within the area of 
biopsychology. However, the focus of your paper must be on brain function. For example, if you elect to 
write an essay on schizophrenia, the focus should be on what we know about the biological basis of 
schizophrenia and NOT on the symptoms of the disorder. Information cited in your paper must be

appropriately referenced and based upon textbook and internet material such as journal articles or
