Motor Control Assignment 

For this brief report format you use a modified APA citation method.  Specifically you must cite your references as follows:

  • Create a bibliography list using all of the APA rules for how to cite a source in a reference list, and sequence the list in alphabetical order, by author name.
  • Add numbers to the reference list to identify each reference.
  • Cite the information in the text using the numbers as superscript immediately following the related information in the text. Note that if you are citing a continuous series you use a hyphen rather than listing all of them.  e.g., use: 1-4,6 rather than: 1,2,3,4,6.
