The image’s critical points include the rapid ascent of true positives measurable by CSSM-BLAST over BLAST, and the persistence of that gap with the increase in the number of false positives. If this graph were to appear in a paper, the reader could linger over the data. But in a talk, the speaker has only one chance to make the graph clear, and so he must help the audience ascertain its most significant feature as quickly as possible.

Or more specifically, how does Caspase 3 trigger apoptosis of three-day in vitro cerebral granular cells when exposed to ethanol? This example constitutes practically an entire Introduction. A few elements are missing, such as an explanation of why Caspase 3 is a logical candidate for study. A good Introduction explains the major decisions that led to the Main Question. Use the following worksheets to help trace those decisions. 1 (enlarged version of this figure can be found in Appendix 1), is for use in preparing the Introduction of a talk to one’s immediate peers.

Feynman T he seventh and final step in preparation is to decide on the title. And titling a talk requires a different approach from titling a paper. A title’s function in a paper is twofold.

The greater the number of pertinent words in the title, the more matches the search will produce. Consequently, a writer might be rewarded by making the title both lengthy and nearly exhaustive in its description of the paper’s content.
