Based at the University of Buffalo, the National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science continues to create compelling and extremely useful teaching materials for those in fields such as biology, engineering, genetics, and related areas. This is one of their latest additions, and it was crafted by Michael S. Hudecki of the Biological Sciences Department at the University of Buffalo. The case explores the scientific process involved in implementing an animal model in the study of Alzheimer's disease. Through this case study, students will learn how to demonstrate the scientific method in action and also explore the "workings of the nervous system in health and disease". In the materials here, students are asked to "identify relevant components of the scientific method" and the materials are suitable for both science and non-science majors.
