User talk:T.R. Barath Kumar
Welcome to the Citizendium! We hope you will contribute boldly and well. Here are pointers for a quick start. You'll probably want to know how to get started as an author. Just look at CZ:Getting Started for other helpful "startup" links, and CZ:Home for the top menu of community pages. Be sure to stay abreast of events via the Citizendium-L (broadcast) mailing list (do join!) and the blog. Please also join the workgroup mailing list(s) that concern your particular interests. You can test out editing in the sandbox if you'd like. If you need help to get going, the forums is one option. That's also where we discuss policy and proposals. You can ask any constable for help, too. Me, for instance! Just put a note on their "talk" page. Again, welcome and have fun! Milton Beychok 19:28, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
Some ideas for contributions
Hi Barath, welcome aboard CZ. Milton has already given you some hints as to how things work here in general, and I wish to add some more practical suggestions on what possibilities you have to contribute. For a start, I just took some of the keywords from the information you supplied upon registration, and display below the current state of related CZ articles (for icon documentation, see Template:Rpl/Doc):
- Biology : The science of life — of complex, self-organizing, information-processing systems living in the past, present or future.
- Psychology : The study of systemic properties of the brain and their relation to behaviour.
- Evolution : A change over time in the proportions of individual organisms differing genetically.
- Evolutionary psychology : The comparative study of the nervous system and its relation to behaviour across species.
- Human : Bipedal mammalian species native to most continents and sharing a common ape ancestor with chimpanzees, gorillas and orang-utans; notable for evolving language and adapting its habitat to its own needs.
- : Actions, responses or exertions exhibited by homo sapiens that are mediated by and through language and may be influenced by culture, attitudes, beliefs, emotions, values, ethics, authority, rapport, persuasion, coercion, force, self-interest, genetics or a variety of other factors.
- Human evolution : The study of the physical and behavioral genetic adaptations of the species belonging to the subfamily hominidae.
- Anthropology : The holistic study of humankind; from the Greek words anthropos ("human") and logia ("study").
- Biodiversity : The study of the range of life forms in a given ecosystem.
- Bioinformatics : The study of (usually molecular) biological systems by computational means.
- Biophysics : The study of forces and energies in biological systems.
- Biostatistics : Add brief definition or description
- Biotechnology : The application of biological principles in industrial production
- Cognition : The central nervous system's processing of information relevant to interacting with itself and its internal and external environment.
- Psychiatry : The subfield of health sciences concerned with mental disorders.
- Brain : The core unit of a central nervous system.
- Brain size : Umbrella term for various measures of how big a brain is.
- Brain evolution : The process by which the central nervous system changed over many generations.
- Brain morphometry : The quantitative study of structures in the brain, their differences between individuals, correlations with brain function, and changes of these characteristics over time.
- Molecular biology : The study of molecular interactions within cells.
- Genetics : The study of the inheritance of characteristics, genes and DNA.
- Gene : The functional unit of heredity.
- Genetic drift : Describes how some alleles either increase or decrease in a population due to chance events.
- Genetic shift : Add brief definition or description
- Gene duplication : The incorporation of the same gene into different parts of the genome of an organism.
- Animal : A multicellular organism that feeds on other organisms, and is distinguished from plants, fungi, and unicellular organisms.
- Plant : A eukaryotic organism, grouped into the kingdom Plantae, that typically synthesizes nutrients through photosynthesis and possesses the inability to voluntarily move.
- Crotolaria : Add brief definition or description
- India : Republic in South Asia; the world's largest democracy. Borders Bangladesh, Bhutan, Burma, China, Nepal, Pakistan
Furthermore, in case you are involved in homework assignments, please consider doing so via Eduzendium articles.
Finally, you can help future newcomers by giving your feedback on the above suggestions. To do so, please leave a note on my talk page.
Looking forward to fruitful collaborative editing, --Daniel Mietchen 20:05, 20 July 2010 (UTC)
