Reading response to Irvins What is Academic Writing?
In L Lennie Irvins article, what is Academic Writing? the author cover academic writing is the
skill that an individual has to present his knowledges in writing academically. Irvins believe that
academic writing should have few elements such as critical thinking and ability to write case or a
topic with academic language.

She also mentioned that an academic writing should be a case that has been researched or can
come from reliable sources.
What I found some interesting from Irvins article is that he mentioned the struggle of a begginer
to write academic writing. Irvins sensed the challenging and try to help the reader or new
freshman writer by explaining some methods that can alleviate the obstacle.
Furthermore that made me interesting is that the way Irvins explained his article is clear and
understandable to me.
In addition Irvins article encourage the new writer to build their writing by following the all
necessary steps that make the essays apply all the standard of academic writing.

Genetic-Environment Risk Factor Versus Neurotrophic Factor In Major Depressive

The etiology of major depressive disorder (MDD) has been researched for a while. It is
believed that multiple factors could be the source of MDD precipitator. Hereditary element is
one of many that scientist try to investigate. Other factors such as vulnerability to stressors,
maladaptive coping mechanism, hormones, race, etc also become the issues that many
researcher have considered to be a part of triggering MDD. This essay would review the
probable all those factors.
Depression is an overall of feeling sad, worthless, hopeless, or thinking of suicidal
thought. There are many type of depression such as major depression, persistent depressive
disorder, bipolar disorder, psychotic depression, postpartum depression and seasonal affective
disorder. In US itself by 2020 the increasing of MDD is inevitable. The economically cost has
been tremendously expensive. Most individual who are affected by it can not function well in
psycho motoric and cognitive (
Those reasons push government to intervene behalf of their incapacity by providing health
coverage, welfare and funding for MDD research. Not to mention the priceless of life itself is the
first priority that is concerned in each of individual with MDD. There are some studies and

experiments that ongoing to discover MDD. The intention is to find out the causes in order to
have a possibility to prevent and resolve it. Some focus in genetic segment and some interest
on the other factors.
There are 35 - 40% is believed that hereditary is part of an individual to have a
MDD(Glowinski et al 2003; Sullivan et al 2000). Allelic of 5-HTT variation which interact with
adversaries treatment in the period of childhood or infant is believed to be the onset of mood
disorder. For instance an individual who seems affected by trauma in the early life more than
four time resulted the person to have an inclination to have MDD and suicidal ideation (Caspi et
On the other hand other scientist look out the possibility of other factor that they believed
can be the source of this disease. There are seven neurotrophic factor in central nervous
system to have a role in displaying major depressive disorder(MDD). Brain-derived
neurotrophic, Glial Cell Line-derived neurotrophic, Insulin like Growth factor, Fibroblast growth
factor, Vascular growth factor, Neurotropin -3 factor and Nerve growth factor. Inadequacy of
neurotrophic factor to function in central nervous system will lead an individual to have the onset
of MDD (Ziang, xiaobin, Li jin, Sha wei wei, Bu ru. MDD - Cognitive and Neurobiological
Mechanism. June 11, 2015).
Major depressive disorder is likely triggered by the genetic-environment rather than
neurotrophic factors. To support this argument I will discuss some factual data which has been
studied extensively. Some scientist researched the pattern of hereditary illness in a family.
Because the identical twin share 100 percent genes and non identical twin only share 50
percent of their gene, a family with a MDD has an identical twin children will be inherit a higher
vulnerability to have MDD to their identical twin children rather than to a non identical children
( Immediate relative who suffer from
MDD will likely to have 2-6 times to have major depressive than a family that has not a family
history of it (University of Maryland Medical In addition MDD is like other disease

such as diabetes, cancer, heart disease. Those illness is triggered by combination of vulnerable
gene and failure to maintain a healthy lifestyle, so an individual who suffer from depression also
has the similarity causes like others disease. (
In conclusion major depressive disorder is a complex and delicate subject. There is no
assurance yet to this day the precise causes why some people have suffered from MDD. The
promise for solving this problem still ongoing and hopefully one day the cause can be
determined in order for MDD to be completely resolved.

Annoying Ways

Sometimes when we read an article, essay, book, or writing we feel annoying with the
contents of what we read. It can be many reasons for it. For example the punctuation,
paraphrases, the references or the flowing of of the contents. In this article Kyle D Steedman
try to help the reader to have some understanding about it.
The difference between the writer and reader understanding to view the same issue will play a
major role in Kyle view. When the writer write the subject and assume that all the audience that
read its writing will have the same level understand like the writer, it can result some annoyance
to the reader. The writer know how to write appropriately but refused to follow the standard of
writing because of ignorant, or some of writer that try write illogically also can make readers
apprehensive. The author commented in his view that some judgement is not always true but
he try to open others perspective of creativity of the writer.
The essay overall is persuasive. It gave some suggestion open minded of creativity to
understand the intent of the writer.
